This year turning on of the Christmas lights on Neuer Wall will not only marks the beginning of the pre-Christmas season in 2019.  In November 2019, the BID Neuer Wall and the Comité Saint-Germain-des-Prés, 6th arr. Paris, started an international partnership. On November 25, at 6 pm, a plaque was inaugurated bearing a text to commemorate the cooperation . The buzzer to turn on the lights was then pressed together by the two institutions.

Also this year, the Business Improvement District Neuer Wall is looking forward to a contemplative Christmas season. On November 25 the tradition was continued: For the 14th time the Christmas lights were solemnly turned on by the BID. Around 900 tenants, residents and owners of the quarter came to the Bürgermeister-Petersen-Platz to celebrate the event with hot drinks and delicacies.

Shopping all weekend - on the 3rd of November, the last Sunday shopping of this year takes place. "With Art and Culture in the City" different events are planned in the city center and HafenCity. In the time from 1 to 6 pm you’re able to stroll through the shops and experience culture at the same time.

Do you already know our new Hanseatic and French neighbors in the Stadthöfe-Ensemble? The townhouses are a collection of many differently designed courtyards and buildings that are used diversely: living, working, feasting, sleeping, celebrating, relaxing, discovering and strolling. Everything is provided with a French touch because the Ensemble was built during the French occupation.

On Monday 29.07.2019, the "Hamburgs Sommergärten" were officially opened. Now the inner city of Hamburg has become a place of relaxation. You have the chance to discover various green oases in the districts Neuer Wall, Passagenviertel, Hohe Bleichen - Heuberg and Dammtorstrasse. To our delight, the opening was accompanied by Mrs. Dr. Senator Stapelfeldt, the districts landowners and store managers.
