Reserve a table in advance to ensure you can enjoy truly wonderful fresh fish. If you forget to do so, then try Sagres just a few doors down the road at number 53.

SEE in Hamburg: Kunsthallered|guide Hamburg
Kunsthalle is home to a first-class collection, which covers no fewer than seven centuries. Here each of the big art families has its own room or house: the old masters are also represented, as are the authorities from the 19th century and the modern classics. The media collection, which includes audio and video works, deserves a special mention. Among others it features work by Günter Brus, Dennis Oppenheim, Valie Export and Gordon Matta-Clark. The Gallery of Contemporary Art - a four-storey, white cube - is dedicated to art from 1960 onwards boasting many interesting pieces.
