  • Just wonderful. It was built in late 1800s and it took 11 years to build it. The tower is 112 meters tall, so you can see the tower in every point of the city. There are 20 scrulptures pf the kings. Further more, there is a fountain inner courtyard. If you don't see this building in Hamburg, never say that you visited Hamburg.
  • What a MAGNIFICENT building. It looks beautiful at any time of day, from every single angle. You can walk into the foyer for free and read up on the history of the building. HOWEVER, I would highly recommend catching a guided tour. We had a terrific time with our tour guide Patrick (English, 12pm, Friday, €5). It went over an hour long, and I learned so many interesting facts and laughed. so. much. Very enjoyable! Also very worth seeing all the different, lavishly decorated rooms. A tour through the Rathaus was definitely a highlight of our trip.
