The Hamburg city Hall is one of the most impressive buildings in the city a building, where you can find both the Senate and the Parliament of Hamburg. There are daily tours of the building, and you can get to see the several architectural periods which makes the beautiful rooms look huge.

It's not that interesting there..it looks nice from the outside but in the end it's really just a city hall, you can't do much there
Really just for tourists

Hamburg’s Town Hall is a gorgeous sandstone building that dominates one side of Rathausmarkt. You can only see the inside via a pre-booked guided tour, but taking a stroll around the exterior’s elaborately decorated facade look for the statues of no less than 20 emperors. The Clock Tower is one the enduring images of the city, and simply sitting in the Rathausmarkt and soaking in the vibe is lovely. If you take the tour, you may be overwhelmed by the sheer artwork (don’t forget to look up) and the number of rooms – 647 to be exact. Don’t worry, you don’t visit them all. The city’s senate and parliament are housed here.

The majestic neo-Renaissance structure is an icon of Hamburg. Take the guided tour to view the interior, with beautiful state rooms and plenty of history to learn!

This place is a center point in the city, and besides the cool history of the building itself, one of the main draws is all the events that are held outside. Especially the Christmas market.

City Hall is a great place to start your journey throughout Hamburg, as it is kind of the center of the city. There's usually always something interesting happening on the "platz" in front of City Hall (Christmas Markets, Saturday Markets, Wine Festivals, etc.). However, inside this building is some great history and gorgeous architecture!
