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 like the idea of ice cream with nut brittle when it’s 28° in the shade and a real Danish hot dog when it’s drizzling and 5°, Miss Sophie is the place for you. You can even polish off your chosen treat on the nearby Dallmannkai steps. This is the face of the new Hamburg, just a stone’s throw away from the Speicherstadt which epitomises the city’s history.
As you can see, there’s nothing to see. We can’t have champagne every day and neither can we expect every corner of the city to be hip and happening. However, if you do wind up here, there’s no need to turn straight around. If you’re patient and appreciate the maritime spirit of Hamburg, you can experience the authentic, kitsch-free atmosphere of the port here – industrial charm before it was cool.
