    Beautiful Architecture and Historic District
    This is quite possibly the quintessential Hamburg attraction. The buildings have been wonderfully preserved/reconstructed and it really takes you back to a bygone era. I recommend taking a walking tour of the area and also visiting the small but very informative Speicherstadt Museum. After thoroughly going through the museum exhibits, I gained an excellent understanding of the purpose and history of the "Storehouse City."

    Most interesting area in Hamburg's habour
    These old storage houses are both unique and beautiful. They cover a huge area and they are homes of many different shops, museums and Event location. Take your time and walk (!) through this place or you can do a boat trip.

    Hamburg history
    Speicherstadt is like taking a trip back in time. It's an oddly beautiful place whose literal translation is 'Storage City.' As you might expect from the name, the area was built to cater for the huge amount of imports flowing into Hamburg port in the late nineteenth century. Have a wander over the famous Brooksbrücke Bridge into the heart of Speicherstadt. Take a camera and appreciate the German architecture and general atmosphere of the region. Set out in blocks named in sequence with letters of the alphabet, Speicherstadt is a hidden gem in the heart of a bustling city.

    Lovely for a wander around on a sunny day
    We walked from Rathaus down to the beautiful and huge red brick buildings of the warehouses. They span a vast area, and iron bridge walkways of this area. It is a vast area, housing different quirky museums, restaurants and working warehouses. The iron foot bridges are a nice way of crossing the canals and exploring this huge neighbourhood.

The old warehouses of Hamburg port are worth a walk around, and with the canals in between it's all rather quant on a good weather's day.

Wouldn't say its a must-see in Hamburg though. Unless particularly interested in architecture, since the buildings themselves are loaded with details to see in between all those bricks.

Magnificent ensemble of the port city. It is fascinating to see how the port was expanded at the time, how these buildings were built to conduct trade and shipping. But it is also very nice to see that trade, commerce and new companies are still present there. Nice little gastronomy along the water. Always new perspectives, e.g. at the Elbe Castle.

Almost skiped this place, but glad I didn't. These massive buildings lining up on a row like this is a bit mezzmerising to watch. I could have walked more in the area. So many bridges and elevated walk paths crossing over each otehr that there is alway a new angle to see. Highly recommend a walk in this area if the wather is good.

If you have time, it is a very nice place to walk around. Every single street has something nice: restaurants, art, backery, stores, history... I really recommend you just go and have fun, take a fresh air and look around. It is wonderful. I made it with 2 small kids and they enjoyed.

We spent some time walking around the Speicherstadt and were very impressed with the look and size of the buildings here. It’s also really nice to walk between them over one of the many bridges in the area, which highlights the size of the place. Impressive.

In this beautiful town I never am bored. This time we visited Hamburg in Corona times during the Pride. Especially cheers for shops like Nivea Haus and their efforts for a better world! Well done!

Becoming my favourite place to simply stroll through. Try a museum, sit down for a beer, it is relaxing and fun. I have to say that in Corona times many international guests are missing and it may (have) be(en) different in the old or new 'normal'.
