The best attractions in the local area
Hamburg Fish Market (Altonaer Fischmarkt)
Why do 70,000 people come to the River Elbe in Hamburg every Sunday? It is not only because of the fresh fish. Since 1703 it has been possible to buy nearly anything from the stalls at the Hamburg fish market. Fish-filled bread rolls for breakfast, a basket overflowing with fruit and the cries of market stallholders are all part of the experience. The Hamburg fish market is a memorable experience during every trip to the city.
The largest model railway installation in the world can be visited in the historic Speicherstadt district of the city. It is only a 5 minute walk from the JUFA Hotel. 930 trains with almost 14,450 wagons, 228,000 trees, 215,000 figures and 13,000 metres of track have been lovingly and painstakingly made over 580,000 hours. Tip: Book tickets best before you arrive in Hamburg.
