The hundred-year-old fish auction hall is a must-see for anyone visiting Hamburg. And so is the traditional market that is taking place in front of the hall. There you can find everything from the dusty porcelain jug to a rubber duck.

The city hall built in neo-renaissance style is one of the few completely preserved historical buildings in Hamburg. Designed by a group of seven architects and constructed from 1886 to 1897, the Rathaus is located in the very heart of the city, near the lake Binnenalster.
