GERMANYA HAN

Built by Prussian architect August Jasmund, who served the Ottoman court from 1888 to 1907, the Germanya Han is a very special building originally designed for the Deutsche ORIENTBANK. Located in the triangular conjunction of Sultanhamam and Şeyhülislam Hayri Efendi streets, the building, viewed from a distance, is a distinctive symbol in the region with its lead-grey roof. Jasmund had gained recognition due to his accomplished architectural artefacts in Istanbul and his lectures in schools like Sanayi-i Nefis Mektebi-i Alisi (Academy of Fine Arts) and Mühendishane-i Berri-Hümâyûn [Imperial School of Military Engineering, later became Istanbul Technical University]. One of the famous buildings that Jasmund designed is the Sirkeci Train Station.

Boasting numerous multi-layered and varied potential areas, Eminönü encompasses the true definition of “downtown get-together area”. The streets between the New Mosque and Sirkeci area had been reorganized in the 19th Century and a lot of businesses popped up in this very tight area in due course. Among the structures distinguished by their incredibly beautiful details and elegant craftsmanship, there are numerous trade buildings and shopping centres worn out by the lapse of time. Yet, the mysterious eclecticism between the new and the old arouses the interest of the global tourists and even today Eminönü reserves its justifiable position to be “the first district to visit in Istanbul”. A few of the promises that this route offers to global explorers are shopping, experiencing the history, and being delightfully surprised to witness the coexistence of an historical hammam and a contemporary café next to one another.
