"Speicherstadt" Speicherstadt - Old Warehouse District Tip by antistar
Speicherstadt - Old Warehouse District, Hamburg: 37 reviews and 62 photos
The Speicherstadt is a district of century old warehouses, whose brick walls are turned a glorious shade of red by the autumn sunsets. It's considered one of the most evocative places in Hamburg, and much of it is difficult to reach except by boat. So if you are going to take one boat tour, make sure it's one that includes the Speicherstadt (although equally expect those to be very popular and book ahead).
It was once a 1.5km long free trade area, built so that ships could unload without paying customs. Today it's one huge tourist attraction in itself, with lots of museums, most notably the Maritime Museum built into one of the old warehouses.
