  • It doesn't here make sense to write something on the history of the Town Hall. Simply book a tour! The Town Hall of Hamburg as his story are unique and a must when visiting this great city. The chronology and the details to replace each museum visit!

  • Rathaus is the city hall of Hamburg and a major landmark of the city. Its architecture is truly inspiring and mesmerizing to every visitor. There is a large public square outside the Rathaus where I found people engaged in different activities such as exercising and strolling. Inside the Rathaus were several sculptures and also a restaurant/cafe bar.
  • Amazing. I had a great time there. That was easy to follow even without tour guide.
  • can be accessed by the train. Theres good food around and a great view
  • The center of the city, filled with lots of shops. The townhall itself is really pretty
  • Definitely have a look there if you want to understand the Hamburg past and present. This is a wonderful historic building with beautiful artwork and intricate carvings throughout.

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.
