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.

It doesn’t have to be The Lion King. The Musical Boulevard is worth a visit even if you don’t have tickets to a musical: the little promenade is home to various sculptures, including Salvador Dali’s Space Elephant. This surrealist gentle giant is visible from afar.

If there is such a thing as the best panoramic view of Hamburg, it is probably the one from Argentinienbrücke. Just a stone’s throw away, at Kuhwerder Hafen, is a real Hamburg institution: Odo’s Kaffeklappe, a kiosk for shipyard workers and long-distance lorry drivers, where proprietor Odo Wehr starts spreading bread rolls with a decorator’s spatula at 3 a.m.
Here at the end of the line, you can take a 20-minute walk to Germany’s second-loveliest beer garden, Zum Anleger. It would be easy to spend all summer at this secluded oasis without missing a thing. You can even enjoy messing about on the river: Zum Anleger hires out canoes and pedalos.
