This building is magnificent, constructed by the same person, which is in itself a unique accomplishment. Renovated for its anniversary, the Hamburg Rathaus is well worth taking time for a tour. There are stairs involved, it is a semi strenuous undertaking. Check the opening times for viewing and make sure you have a tour in English. Once you are finished, you can
head over to the Gaensemarkt (Goose Market place) and do a little window shopping in the Gaenseviertel passage. Stop in for a bite to eat at one of the many attractive eateries or head over to Daniel Wischer's Fisch kitchen, for a typical downtown Hamburg restaurant. Or, if your time is limited, go get a Bratwurst at one of the stands along the Moenckebergstrasse. You won't go wrong. Hamburg's downtown is a very interesting setting with the InnenAlster lake for your enjoyment.

What a stunning building. Make sure you walk through the back into the courtyard. We saw it at Christmas with the markets out the front which made it extra special, but even without - you must visit this when in town.

Okay from the outside. Foyer like many other early 1900s European buildings. You need to book onto a tour to see anything else. Tour €3 with English ones every hour. Tour was fine, though shorter than the 45 mins promised. Visited around 10 rooms-wallpapers, finishes and paintings very beautiful and what the tour focused on. Basic information given on Hamburg's history and the Parliament. Tour guide didn't welcome questions and wasn't confident answering any that weren't 'in the script'. Not suitable for children or people who have trouble with stairs.
