The fish market and surrounding area

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 . 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 is definitely worth a visit, despite its early hours!
