The Altona Fish Market

The cult market is open for you every Sunday morning. Get up early or maybe not go to sleep at all. Perhaps you have spent a long night with friends in the Kiez, then simply go down the harbour stairs and visit the Altona Fish Market. The day is just beginning and the sun is rising in Altona. First of all, you can have a delicious breakfast here. Hearty fish rolls, fresh fruit and a strong coffee to wake you up are a good start to the day. There is a truly unique atmosphere in the market.

The market criers encourage you to buy in any case. But it also makes shopping really fun. Let the bags and baskets be filled! One or the other bouquet of flowers flies through the air or a bunch of bananas. There are huge bags full of delicious North German sausage at a ridiculous price, fresh fish, delicious fruit, amazing flowers, huge potted plants, souvenirs and more. And the vendors always have time for a snack, even if many people hungry for shopping are waiting in front of their stands for their “loot”.

Satisfied happy people everywhere you look. There is never a bad mood here. Let yourself be carried away by the great atmosphere of the market criers. It’s just fantastic.

Once you’ve been to the fish market, you’ll never forget it. The market is not only a crowd puller for tourists. No, the people of Hamburg also visit him regularly. Every Sunday the market attracts around 70,000 visitors.

If you still feel like having a little fun, you can also shake a leg in the morning in the market hall to live music.

There is no such thing as bad weather in Hamburg, just inappropriate clothing. But it rarely says land under at the fish market. The brick building of the fish auction hall and the market area are only under water during stormy times.

Our recommendation: Definitely go there and enjoy!
