Wasn't on my visit list but this is an amazing building. It is one of the most beautiful buildings in Europe. Worth to go.

I can only say I visited the outside of the Town Hall but it was quite impressive. Definitely pop upstairs from the train station and have a look.

We first saw the Rathaus via a bus tour. They told us about the central courtyard, which has a grand fountain in the center worth seeing. The front of the Rathaus is amazing, too!!! A must-see, for sure!!!

City Halls of Germany have similar building characteristic designs. I don't know why, this one reminded me the Rathaus of Munich. There are guided tour of building available in multiple languages with fee. I forgot exactly how much but it was more than a few euro.

An impressive, imposing building. Some of the statues and architecture are some of the best in Germany! It's also at a good focal point of the city, easy walking distance to a lot of the other sights.

Among Rathausmarkt in Germany, this is my second favorite one after Munich one. It is very grand in design, very big, very detailed in the architecture itself. The location of this place is in the middle of Hamburg, close to Europe Passage Mall which contains almost everything needed. To reach here, you can take train and stop at JUNGFERNSTIEG or... More

A stunning piece of architecture which one can access free of charge. I saw a free tour being given in English which sounded very interesting. Photographic exhibition inside when we visited

Very pretty building with all the frou-frou of the 1800s . Nice to walk through to the courtyard and fountain, a pleasant stroll for the Central Station.

Out for a stroll around the old town and checked out the Rathaus. Architecture is great, but not much signage in English. Tours were not apparent so we just poked around. Lots of interesting details high on the exterior that would be great to be explained.
