It is a modern, industrial, and pretty dirty city with no "big sites". This rathaus is one of the prettiest buildings it has, but when you... More

The town hall is a beautiful building and in itself worth a visit. But with the Christmas market on from the end of November till Christmas Eve and with all the Christmas lights and decoration it is extraordinarily stunning. A must-do. Many other interesting attractions are in walking distance.

This is probably the busiest Christmas market in Hamburg and a lovely place to visit. We ate food from a few of the stalls and it was all delicious. The gluwein and beer was slightly more expensive than the Saint Pauli or Monckenstrasse markets but we expected that. One of the highlights was seeing Father Christmas in his sleigh passing... More

Whilst the town hall is a beautiful and history filled building, we visited to see the amazing Christmas market and absolutely loved it! We visited several times and were sad to return home! Recommended to all!
