Art Gallery
“My favourite exhibition space for arts and photography. If you are in to Japanese cuisine you might want to check out the family run restaurant Daruma just behind Deichtorhallen. Do not expect anything but lovely and loud Japanese owners from Kansai area ( they are much more cheerful than the ones from Tokyo area) and authentic pub cuisine such as handrolled sushi, Tempura, meat skewers and Japanese beer and sake. Nothing fancy but super down to earth authentic and yummy Japanese street food!”
