“Impressive to look at, nice display if you speak German.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I stopped here briefly since I was walking by. It is beautiful outside. They have a big display inside with pictures but nothing in English. So I looked at the pics and headed out. They do give English language tours but I missed it.

“Beautiful Building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

This is a beautiful building and is worth a visit. We visited on a Sunday and there were no guided tours available. There was a static exhibition in the foyer of the building which looked very interesting but all was in German, there is not much effort made to facilitate non-German speaking people/tourists.

“Must go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

English guides available 3 times a day on Weekends too ! Very friendly & helpful staff. Impressive architecture and the fact that it's being utilized today on a daily basis is wonderful; it isn't just a historic relic that requires upkeep for no other purpose than history's sake. Any Hamburger would be proud of their Rathaus!

“Wow Hall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

I regret not touring the Rathaus on a day it's doors were open. If it's interior is half as impressive as the outside then it must truly be a sight to behold. Anyone touring Hamburg must stop by and see this town hall. The adjacent canal and the platz to the front add tot eh old world charm. Come and see.

“Lots to See”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Found the Rathaus very interesting. Lovely fountain and courtyards in a georgous building. it was a nice day so lots of photo opportunities. Definitely worth a visit, as all the tourist buses are there in the square, and of course the waterboats are ony a stones throw away.
and its free!
