Every Sunday at 5am, auctions start here. A large selection of sandwiches with salmon, herring, crab or sardine. The cost of one 5 euros. Many local and tourists gather there.

You can find many things here aside from fresh fishes, such as cheap clothing, fruits, and other stuff. Many stalls here selling fish sandwiches at reasonable prices and good tastes. Take note of operation time was only until 9.30am, we were there at 10am most...More

Appears to be the perfect location by the waterside for a mass market. Unfortunately the market wasn’t in session the day we visited Hamburg Port, but having read a lot it seems this is one of those classic fish markets.

This fish market opens very early, so that the people who were out partying since Sat night can have a quick bite before heading home. We arrived at around 8am (online says that the market closes by 9am - NO! It doesn't!) In fact, you'll...More

This market is really nice but it requires to wake up early on a Sunday. It can be too crowded at times but overall I'd recommend a visit.

Great live music, various stalls to look round and plenty to eat and drink either in or around the market

It's fun to visit, but the market itself is not extraordinary. It's not as if fish is brought in fresh from the fishermen, it's just fish products for the most part. I would recommend going there early though - there's a beautiful view of the...More
