Reese-Haus an der kleinen Alster, Hamburg

At eye level with the mayor

The Reese-Haus is located in the centre of Hamburg, opposite the “Hamburger Rathaus”, directly at the political pulse of the city. Due to its exposed location, it connects the Rathausmarkt with the Kleine Alster. On the largest free area in the city, in front of the venerable sandstone building, merchants’ spirit meets politics, Alster gulls meet Alster swans. It could not be more representative.

Hamburg’s transformation

It was the visionary miller Heiner Reese who, with the upper mill on the site of today’s Reese House, supplied the up-and-coming Hanseatic city with flour. With the dam on today’s Jungfernstieg, Hamburg’s cityscape made a radical transformation: the Alster River became an Alster Lake, an idyllic place of Hanseatic activity.

The most beautiful free space in town

The Rathausmarkt is the urban development and atmospheric interface of the Hanseatic city – in former times the horse-drawn tram lines used to stop here. Today, it is the buses of the metro lines M4 and M5 and the underground of the U3 line. The shopping streets from the direction of the main railway station and Gänsemarkt unite here at the largest square in the city.
