    A place of compulsory when visiting Hamburg with many places to enjoy the culinary specialities. Don't miss a trip with boats that run through the spring.

    A fish with smiles from all market. A magnificent Hall in which occurs in groups of rocks which the choruses are taken heart by the crowd... Really, a bit more rising early to make this market will not be a sacrifice because in addition to go home with a basket full of fresh or smoked fish, you return with a smile... Do so for the atmosphere and the quality of the products...

Where to stay in Hamburg

The most dynamic part of the city is the St. Pauli area, also known as Kiez. This is where tourists and locals brush shoulders among the many bars, shops, and sites. Jungfernsteig, or Neuer Wall, is an upmarket area with brand name shopping and luxury dining. Consider a stay in the bohemian quarters of Altona or the Sternschanze/Schanzenviertel. These areas burst with character and offer out-of-the-ordinary shopping and dining experiences at lower prices.
