Fruit, flowers, souvenirs and clothing are also on sale here. You can buy freshly caught fish from the fishing boats on the jetty and live music is often played in the fish auction hall. This is a great place to start the day between locals, tourists and tired strollers with a first coffee and fresh fish sandwiches in the morning!
For a little break from the hustle and bustle of the city, our insider tip is Planten un Blomen park. It was created on part of the former Hamburg ramparts. The name is Low German and means – it’s easy to guess – plants and flowers. The 47-hectare park not only has a lot to offer for walkers and nature lovers: Those interested in culture will find many events here all year round, there are two large playgrounds for children and for the more sporty, the park offers a roller skating rink, among other things, which turns into an ice rink in winter. With its lake, the Japanese Garden, a tropical house and many different walking paths, Planten un Blomen is an idyllic destination and a great tip when visiting Hamburg!
