Always parallel to the Elbe, the Große Elbstraße runs from the St. Pauli fish market along the Altona Balcony all the way to Neumühlen.
Here, you have an unobstructed view of the countless cranes and ships in the harbour and can watch the lively hustle and bustle on the other side of the Elbe. Occasionally a fresh breeze blows around your nose, suggesting that in the immediate vicinity of the fish market, many fish wholesalers have settled. But there’s much more to discover in the Große Elbstraße. Fresh fish is immediately processed and served here in the many high-quality restaurants. A little further you will find delis, vintage furniture and the iconic Haifisch Bar, where you can still meet real seamen having their evening beer.
