Town Hall (Rathaus)#4 in Best Things To Do in Hamburg
- 0.0Food Scene
The Rathaus (Town Hall) is big -- bigger than London's immense Buckingham Palace -- and travelers also say it's one of the best sights in Hamburg. Resting on a square, inspired by Venice's Piazza San Marco, the Rathaus' formidable exterior opens into a lavish interior, which is peopled by Hamburg's city council and state government officials. English-language tours take about 45 minutes and wind past the opulent state rooms, a mere fraction of those on site. Hop of the U-bahn at Mönckebergstr to get to this town hall.

While walking, be sure to look at the artworks that line the tiled walls. Travelers enjoyed the experience of walking beneath the river and taking in the great view from the opposing side. Free of charge for pedestrians and bikers, motorists are charged a small fee. You'll find the Elbe Tunnel open 24 hours a day (for pedrestrians/bikers) off the Landungsbrücken U-bahn stop.
