The fish market and surrounding area

Explore the fish market, fish auction hall and surroundings.

The fish market with its long tradition 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!

A magical mix of wanderlust, adventure and freedom. The harbour tour takes in the Landungsbrücken jetties, originally built for steam ships, and passes veteran vessels such as the 'Rickmer Rickmers' before motoring through the warehouse district to the modern port in use today. Subject to tides/water level. Witness the activity of this hard-working port at close quarters – some 140 million tonnes of goods are transshipped here each year – and see the human, industrious, creative and cultural sides of the vibrant Hamburg quayside.
