On the go in the Speicherstadt

Hamburg's World Heritage Site.

There's no getting by the Speicherstadt.

Whether on a harbour tour or a city tour: the narrow canals, bridges and streets along the world's largest contiguous warehouse complex are integral to the identity of the Hanseatic City. Especially at dusk, a romantic and dim atmosphere emerges between the historic brick buildings with their bizarre Gothic towers and gables. In addition, many of the historic buildings are now used for gastronomy; their culinary offerings invite you to spend relaxing hours between the gables and corners of the Speicherstadt.
