White. White. White. This building is very white. I think it's the favorite for weddings. It's open to explore it fom inside, but you cannot go in every room since it is in use. From inside it pretends to be bigger than from outside. Toilets are free... One thing is very new and amazing. Long awaited. The canteen is open... More

I would not put this building at the top of my list when in Hamburg but since we were there on Sunday late afternoon there were not a lot of places open and this was. The square in front was busy with mimes and groups of people - many tourists. There are some interesting exhibits throughout the ground floor and... More

It is a magnificent building, but nothing more. I haven't been inside, just passed it, but I don't feel like it is very interesting place to go n Hamburg, there are so many more places to go.
