A fair and bargain sale every Sunday.
To spend a weekend in Hamburg without visiting the fish market is a big mistake. It's been made very easy to work one's way through the No. 1 must-see attraction. Just a few minutes by foot from the Saturday club and pubs at the Reeperbahn, the harbor city institution opens its doors every Sunday morning. It opens at 5 a.m., a time when you might just head home after a long night out. If you decide for the fish market on the banks of the Elbe, you'll be rewarded with the experience of an incredible confusion of thousands of early risers, the bawdy sayings of eel vendors and bananas flying through the air. Is all of this beneficial after a long night out? Doesn't matter -- it has to be experienced! Tip: In the historic fish auction hall there is a Sunday brunch with live music.
