"Die Speicherstadt" Speicherstadt - Old Warehouse District Tip by shellseeker


This is my favourite sight in Hamburg - well it is more a district of its own. The neo-gothic style building are still in use to house the trader’s treasures such as spices, carpets, coffee, tea and rum. You can do a very good guided tour through the 19th century storage houses when visiting the “Spice Museum”. Or you go on a “Hafenrundfahrt” (harbour cruise) with one of the “Barkassen” on offer along “Landungsbrücken”. They bring you inside the storage quarter wnd you have a special view of the channels and the houses all around.
