This beautiful historic building is on a square. It's also near the canal and shopping streets in Hamburg. At Christmas time there is normally a Christmas market in front of this beautiful building. It's a 'must see' if travelling to Hamburg.

This is one of my favorite places in Hamburg. The building itself was built in 1886 to replace the old town hall which had burned down in the Great Fire of 1842. This took 11 years to complete and is one of the most beautiful and impressive buildings in the city. The inside is just as gorgeous, it's a must-see... More

Should drop and take photos here with the scene of the canal and river would be lovely. I love the contrast of the roof and the building

All German cities of rank has a stately 'Rathaus', so even Hamburg? - Perhaps the greatest of them all in Germany! The house is centrally located in the city between the bridges and has a slight decorated facade filled with details - pinnacles and towers - sculptures and frescoes. It is worth visiting the entrance hall and the courtyard behind... More

The Town Hall is perhaps the most impressive building during our short stay in Hamburg. At the Rathaus Square there is a monument to the great German-Jewish poet Heinrich Heine..

The architecture is amazing. If you come to Hamburg, you shouldn't miss this site. A stroll through is free. Don't buy a tour.

Truly at the centre of Hamburg and the landmark that I used for finding my way around, you cannot miss this place. Even on a gloomy, rainy day in Hamburg you just have to stop, stand still and admire the years of work and thought that has gone into this building. Admittance is free for a wander inside but just...
