Great place to go in the morning. Start your day out nicely with some fish, sunrise over the Harbour and a walk along the Alster

It's a really nice local market where you can get a variety of food and cheap clothing. I wouldn't say it's a must, but it's definitely worth a visit. The fish market is open on Sundays 5.00 - 9.30. However, we got there around 9.30...More

Every Sunday at 5am, auctions start here. A large selection of sandwiches with salmon, herring, crab or sardine. The cost of one 5 euros. Many local and tourists gather there.

Appears to be the perfect location by the waterside for a mass market. Unfortunately the market wasn’t in session the day we visited Hamburg Port, but having read a lot it seems this is one of those classic fish markets.

This market is really nice but it requires to wake up early on a Sunday. It can be too crowded at times but overall I'd recommend a visit.
