In the very city center of Hamburg, this is one of the places to meet. Locals as well as international tourists show up every day.

Unless you are visiting during the festive season or during an event, the market is just a set of stalls selling food and souvenirs in front of the magnificent town hall. To one side of the market is the beautiful arcaded waterfront of Alsterfleet. Worth...More

This is a typical German rathaus platz...nothing special. There were several restaurants and places to sit outside in the platz.
