  • It's fun to visit, but the market itself is not extraordinary. It's not as if fish is brought in fresh from the fishermen, it's just fish products for the most part. I would recommend going there earl...  more »

  • Getting up early is worth. -The market halls are worth seeing. The two music bands that played there were both very good. The market share outside was an experience in itself. The prices for fruit and flowers were super cheap. So definitely worth a visit.

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.
