Hamburg's Fish Market

The bustling atmosphere of the 300-year old Hamburg Fishmarkt is unique. Fresh seafood, exotic fruits and nuts, flowers and teas from all over the world – the market is a must for every foodie. The open-air market, right next to the historic fish auction hall and along the Elbe river, is open only on Sundays between 5am and 9:30 am (open from 7am - 9:30am November 15 - March 15).
