The Speicherstadt

A Hamburg Landmark

The Speicherstadt, a Hamburg landmark, is one of the main attractions in the great harbour tour. The world’s largest integrated complex of warehouses was built in 1883, five years before Hamburg received its free port. Since 1991, the unique district has been given historic monument protection. Visit the Speicherstadt official website.
