Beautiful building with some Christmas markets outside. Worth a visit and very easy to find. I imagine it gets very busy nearer to Christmas though.

The Town Hall in hamburg is located at the very centre and is close to the "Alster". While strolling the city you should pass by the town hall as it is a very old and beautiful buildung. Tours are available and pretty interesting, but at least it is worth a picture of the green and gold ornaments decorating the outer... More

Our guide (in English) explained what the decoration in the rooms was based on, and a bit of the history of Hamburg. After 45 minutes we knew a lot more about the history of the city.

This is a town hall exraordinaire. Absolutely amazing architecture. Was the parliament building of the hanseatic league. The statue details on the roof are wonderful. Guided tours for 4 euros in English and German.

The Rathaus has a beautiful architecture inside and out. Even just a very quick visit is worth it, but I enjoyed spending a lot of time around the building to observe the intricate facade work. Beautiful and a must in Hamburg..

This is a great tour - takes over an hour and is probably closer to two, The time flies by. Your tour guide provides excellent detail and history about the building and Hamburg itself.

do not miss this beautifull building. If you come from the direction of the Alster, pass the main entrance and get into the inner court yard with an awsome fountain. If you want to have a look inside the town hall, there are some guided tours. Book ahead!

The President of Haiti was visiting just then and we couldn't see half of it. But, what we did see was really, really beautiful.

The Rathaus (Townhall) tour is brilliant. There is an English tour every hour and German every half hour, with very well informed and relaxed guides to show you through this amazing building. Be sure to ask about the 'orphan room'!
