The fish market is as much a part of Hamburg as the harbour
Since 1703, one has been able to find everything the heart desires at the Hamburg fish market. Night owls with fish sandwiches in their hands meet morning shoppers here. Experience how whole jungles in pots change owners, how the fish sellers roar their souls out of their bodies and how crowds of people gather in front of the stalls in search of the freshest fish. The fish auction hall with its domed roof and stained glass windows is also a must-see. You can brunch here as well on a regular basis. The fish market is definitely worth a visit, despite its early hours!
The restaurant Hamburger Elbspeicher on the first floor of an old Elbe warehouse offers marvellous views of the Elbe, the Port of Hamburg, cranes, dock 11 and Blohm und Voss, and in summer the large Elbe terrace.
