  • If you're in Hamburg, then it is a must-see! It is in the centre, filled with locals and tourists, very close small cafes and food shops. Give it a walk next to it and you will reach most attractions.  more »

  • 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.
