The Kaisergalerie (The Emperor’s Gallery) in Hamburg is situated at Großen Bleichen, a location that is governed by style and good taste. The name “Kaisergalerie” has its roots in a visit paid here by the Emperor Wilhelm the 1st in the year 1881. At the beginning of the 20th century the old building was replaced by the Kaisergalerie. After an elaborate refurbishment, its elegant architecture is a reminder of previous times and can be admired again today.

The building was erected between 1845 and 1847 in line with the designs of architect Alexis de Chateauneuf who had a significant influence on rebuilding the city. On January 2 in 1848, the Hamburgische Stadtpost, the City of Hamburg Central Post Office, was opened here. Further post office branches such as the Principal Post Office of Thurn and Taxis, the Royal Hannover Post and the Royal Swedish Post were also accommodated in the building. After extensively refurbishing in 1971, the historically listed building between Große Bleichen and Bleichenfleet was equipped with a shopping arcade, which ultimately led to the reinvention of this part of Hamburg’s city centre. Thus The Passages were born. By the end of 2008, the stores in the shopping arcade Alte Post had all closed their doors. Once again, the building was gutted and, by 2012, it was completely revamped by the architect Alk Arwed Friedrichsen. Several historical details such as the cast-iron candelabra, windows and doors were rebuilt following the original designs of Chateauneuf.
