“impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

goes to show that citizens' taxes can produce something magnificent they cannot use. 11 million gold marks to build a city hall larger than buckingham palace. nonetheless, very beautiful inside and great english tour guide.

“One of my favourite buildings EVER!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

The Rathaus (or town hall) is at the centre of Hamburg city, amongst double-decker buses, bustling streets and various canals. The inside of the Rathaus is visually captivating, between the Gothic architecture to the statues that tell stories of Hamburg's history. The only disappointment on this tour was our tour guide who was incredibly blunt and often rather rude. But definitely make the trip to this gorgeous landmark!

“Fascinating Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Took an guided tour in English of what is effectively the Parliament of the State of Hamburg. I'm not sure how often the English tours operate but ours was at 1.15pm. Very knowledgeable and personable young female guide gave very interesting insights into the building itself and Hamburg's political system. Tour takes just under an hour and I recommend it for anyone interested in Hamburg's history, politics or architecture. A bargain at 4 Euros or 2 Euros with a Hamburg Card.

“Stunning building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

Not only is the architecture of this building brilliant on the outside the rooms on the guided visit are well worth the admission price. Just look at the doors, ceilings, leather wallpaper to appreciate the craftsmanship.

“What a building”

Try to arrange your visit to coincide with an English speaking tour. Fascinating place and so well reconstructed.
