What to Eat in Hamburg

Although Hamburg is probably not among the top culinary destinations of the world, the city's proximity to the sea gives its chefs lots of fresh fish to cook with. And as Hamburg's a very green city, restaurants serve up a lot of seasonal dishes, such as asparagus soup in the spring and cauliflower dishes in the summer.

Still, Hamburg holds to its roots, too, and traditional restaurants offer grilled or pickled herring, bratwurst, hamburger steak and eel soup.
