Hamburg's maritime cultural heritage

In 2015, the ensemble "Speicherstadt und Kontorhausviertel with Chilehaus" was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. This makes it one of the 1200 "masterpieces of human creativity of universal value" worldwide. Don't miss the impressive architecture and history of the buildings and quarters. Explore the numerous corners of the Speicherstadt during a walking tour or take a canal trip to see its architecture from the water.

The Chilehaus whose top is reminiscent of a ship's prow was constructed in 1922-1924 for the Hamburg businessman Henry Brarens Sloman according to a design by Fritz Höger, and was named after the country where Sloman traded for three decades.

Historic. Impressive. Sprinkenhof

The Montanhof building is particularly impressive due to its jagged offset façade, which resembles an accordion.
