Speicherstadt#8 in Best Things To Do in Hamburg
- 1.5Food Scene
The red-brown buildings of the Speicherstadt (Warehouse District) used to shelter the city's imports -- coffee, spices, silks -- which were carried fresh off the boats in the harbor. Although these buildings aren't open for tours, travelers are fond of snapping pictures of this historic area. You'll find it off the Meßberg U-bahn stop.
- Although you won't be able to enter the buildings, the nonstop comings and goings will give you a good sense of a port at work. If you want to learn about the history and architecture of the old warehouses, detour to the Speicherstadtmuseum." -- Fodor's
