The promenade at the port between Landungsbrücken and Baumwall, which has not yet been officially named, now bears the name of the popular Hamburg actor and honorary commissioner of the Hamburg police. On Friday morning, the Jan-Fedder-Promenade was officially inaugurated by widow Marion Fedder, Interior Senator Andy Grote (SPD), Environment Senator Jens Kerstan (Greens) and the head of the Hamburg-Mitte district office, Ralf Neubauer (SPD).
Inauguration on the 67th birthday
The ceremony took place on a special day, as Fedder would have turned 67 on the day of the inauguration. As policeman Dirk Matthies, Jan Fedder ensured law and order in the Hamburg neighborhood for decades in the NDR series “Großstadtrevier” and also helped shape the recently ended series “Neues aus Büttenwarder”.
Widow and interior senator promoted the idea
Hamburg’s interior senator Grote launched the idea together with Fedder’s widow Marion. The overwhelming reactions to the proposal showed what Jan Fedder still means to the people of Hamburg, said the politician.

“Jan was a Hamburger with body and soul”
For Marion Fedder, there is no other place in Hamburg that is so representative of her husband’s life: “The naming of the Jan-Fedder-Promenade is definitely the best birthday present Jan has ever received. Jan was a Hamburger with body and soul and proud of his city. The port of Hamburg was his home, the elixir of his life. You could not have found a better place to honor Jan for eternity.
