Restaurants in Hamburg

Hamburg is one of Germany's best cities when it comes to restaurants serving seafood dishes. In the morning the fishing boats come into port with the night's catch. Fish, healthy stews, multicultural food and traditional German fare, such as "Birnen, Bohnen und Speck" (Pears, Beans and Pork) are meals not to be missed. Hamburg has about 4000 restaurants and here below you will find some of them.

You'll find more restaurants in the Restaurants in St. Pauli section.
