The crew at Brücke 10 fondly describe their fish roll as a “humble all-time favourite” and mackerel as an “unassuming beauty”. Anyone who has ever made a stopover here is sure to come back for more. One of Hamburg’s oldest and most iconic places for fish rolls, it offers customers a classic view while they savour their delicious seasoned herring.
If you fancy a change, give the Fischmarkt a miss and head to Roatan, a little Caribbean restaurant on the corner opposite Große Elbstraße. Here you can eat your fill of Creole specialities, but make sure you leave space for a slice of Aunt Anna Haylock’s yucca cake afterwards! You could be forgiven for thinking you had wandered onto the set of Finding Nemo here.
If you disembark here, make sure you bring a healthy appetite with you. All sorts of eateries can be found in Große Elbstraße, from Henssler to the legendary Café Schmidt. A few metres further along, you can stop off at the restaurant Zum Elbblick. Traditional, unobtrusive and cosy, it serves draught Jever and market-fresh herring.
At twilight, head over to the pontoon at Neuhof ferry jetty or Roßbrücke to snap some wonderful photos of sights like Hamburg’s “triumphal arch”, Köhlbrandbrücke bridge. The Elbe island of Neuhof is a Mecca for keen photographers. Take your time exploring the southern Elbe with your camera. Make sure you pack a flask of grog or a nice cold beer for the perfect day out.
