Top 5 things to do in Hamburg's warehouse district

At the Speicherstadt, Hamburg's historic red brick warehouses hover above the water on stilts. It's one of the city's best places just to wander around and explore, but if you're looking for a little more than that, try checking out some of these highlights!

Spices are one of Hamburg's major imports and the short, sweet, and slightly odd Spicy's Gewürzmuseum provides about as multisensory a learning experience as it's possible to have!

Coffee is another key import into the harbor. In one of the port's gorgeous red brick buildings, the Kafferösterei serves the best coffee in town – and cakes to match!

The Speicherstadt is home to two museum ships! The Rickmer Rickmers and Cap San Diego are both prime examples of shipping vessels from their eras (1890's and 1960's respectively).

Or the German Customs Museum to you and me. If that doesn't sound interesting, consider all the dangerous smuggling, corruption, and diplomacy illustrated in its numerous exhibits!

When to visit?

All the aforementioned museums are open from 10:00AM to 5:00PM, except the Cap San Diego, which is open until 6:00PM. Ticket prices are reasonable, but book a tour on top to enhance the experience! Oh, and be sure to check the weather forecast in advance, because Hamburg can get pretty wet even when it's hot!

What people are saying about Speicherstadt

Fascinating tour showing off the diversity of the harbour.

It was fascinating to see the wide range of activity around the harbour from the canal & warehouses to the container and cruise ships. Very clear and humorous commentary in English.

Informative about historical and architecture background

Our guide Sybille was awesome. She was so much motivated and had profound and detailed knowledge about HH Hafencity and the Elbphilharmonie. That went from history to architecture and social aspects of the area. I recommend the tour.

Good general introduction to the Hamburg Harbour

Good general introduction to the Hamburg Harbour. Boat was OK but the there was only one bartender and it took a long time to have something to drink. Despite of this the experience was positive.
