This is most commonly known as the “Michel” building and is as architecturally unique as the town hall of Hamburg is great. The district around the town hall was built after the Second World War, with the subsequent bomb damage it was rebuilt and is now a popular site for bus travelers. After a walk from the city centre to the harbor, you can experience the interesting sights of the harbor along with the hustle and bustle of a vibrant port city.
