You can reach the Hamburg fish market by taking the U3 underground line to Reeperbahn and then walking for 10 minutes.
From fish, fruit, tropical plants and clothes to live chickens or entire duck families, a wide variety of goods are traded at the Hamburg fish market. The main attraction is the market criers. Allegedly, the loudly shouting traders can be heard as far away as the Reeperbahn, and it is not unusual for a piece of fruit to fly through the air.
They usually add a fish on top or a piece of sausage until a buyer is found for the goods. Many go home with heavy bags full of fish and fruit, but even without the intention of finding bargains, a visit to the Hamburg fish market is worthwhile. For example, for a breakfast of fish rolls, a morning view across the Elbe to Hamburg harbour, or simply to experience the spectacle of the market.
