Does not push the git branch modernize to the named branch modernize, sorry

You mean, in layman terms, checkout the remote branch?

So to sum it up:

    1. If I wish to push (remote) gitbranches as hg named branches, I have first
       to check them out to have local ones? That seems the strategy I followed 
from the
       start, but then I understand your comments, that I can somehow
       save that step your find at least a faster way

So you suggested

That this would save me to step to checkout the branches, but

git push hg-remote remotes/origin/modernize:modernize

Does not create a named branch.

And concerning 

git for-each-ref --format='git switch %(refname:lstrip=3)' refs/remotes/origin

You later told me,

So how should this command help me to avoid checking out each remote
