Between the Mönckebergstraße and Jungfernstieg you will find the flagship under Hamburg's shopping malls.
With five decks, as the shopping levels are called here, a total of 16 floors (incl. garage and offices) and a length of 160 metres, the Europa Passage has the appearance of a luxurious cruise ship. It is the largest shopping centre in Hamburg’s inner city.
In the year 2007, the elliptical structure, designed by Hadi Teherani, received the renowned MIPIM-Award prize awarded for the category „Business Centers“.
The stores in the Europa Passage
