Visiting the Fischmarket

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by missj1981 on November 16, 2012

Hamburg is near to Bremen and only half an hour drive, so when visiting Bremen it’s really worth going to Hamburg. Hamburg is a much larger city and has over a million people. You wouldn’t really say so when walking through the city center since the center feels quiet small. This in a good way, it feels intimate.

Worth going to is the Fischmarkt in the city center. I think this market has been there for more than hundreds of years and although at first it was truly used as a food market, these days it’s still a food market but more fun for tourists.

These days you have a warehouse were you can buy lots as coffee, greasy food and beer but there is also a band playing music to keep it really entertaining. Of course you still can buy normal food here like fruit, fish and more.

It’s truly fun and worth a trip when you are in the city. It’s something different than the usual attractions that you would visit.
