Discover Hamburg's World Heritage! - In the authentic setting of a storage block from 1888, you can still experience the original atmosphere of the world's unique storage city, which was declared a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2015.
Grieps, rubber bales, coffee sacks and sugar clappers...Typical tools and imported goods are shown, which illustrate the work of the quarter people (warehouse keepers). From the weighing and sampling of the goods to their refinement by sorting machines and manual sorting, it becomes clear how high-quality imported goods such as coffee, cocoa, tobacco or rubber were stored in the past. Children also have fun here because they can touch many things and can explore the museum on their own with a rally.
The themes of the Speicherstadtmuseum are trade and building history
Further central topics are the tea and coffee trade as well as the history of the Speicherstadt, which is presented with numerous historical photos and plans. In addition, the almost extinct trade of the Ewer leaders, who used to transport the goods to the storehouses by barges, is remembered.
Guided tours, tea tastings and mystery readings in the Speicherstadt Museum
