Finkenwerder is a part of Hamburg that was formerly the home of and starting point for many fishermen. Almost all of the city’s fresh fish was caught by fishermen leaving from here. For the classical preparation "Finkenwerder Art", North Sea plaice is served with bacon, onions and crab meat. You can try this regional speciality in the traditional Gasthaus zur Post in Cranz im Alten Land. Selected seasonal fish dishes have been prepared here since 1725.
