It's a beautiful building from the outside and you are able to walk in and have a look around one of the rooms. This is great way to grab a few photos and learn a little about Hamburg. It doesn't take too long either!

The building itself was built in 1886 to replace the old town hall which had burned down in the Great Fire of 1842. It took 11 years to complete. It's situated in the heart of Hamburg and is an absolutely beautiful historic building built on the stones of the Hammer Burg.

Hamburg was never on my list of places I wanted to visit however when flights were £20 return I couldn't say no. Went for Valentine's Day and there's some gorgeous sights but this town hall was my favourite by far. So much detail and you notice more and more the longer you stare at it. It is also a good...

I visited TownHall multiple times during my stay in Hamburg and as like other European cities, there is always something going on in the weekends. Otherwise also this is a nice place for hangout.

The Hamburg town hall is a grand old building - taller than Big Ben in London! It's impressive in size and design, and you can go in for a look as well and learn a bit about the history of Hamburg. The area around it is nice for a walk as well.

As the title states this is an absolutely beautiful building. Very busy inside. We didn't take the paid tour of the building but rather strolled around inside and around the court yard. There was a cafe inside although we did not use this facility.

Great place, beautiful architecture in the shopping area! Great restaurant too! And in spite of the cold we enjoyed a beautiful outside show with people in costumes and masks.
