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).
The model railway may well be an attraction in its own right, but Miniatur Wunderland boasts all of Hamburg's sights under one roof, as well as a few from around the world!
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!
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!
There are no U-Bahn stations in Speicherstadt itself, but it's only a minute or so by foot from the stops Baumwall (U3) and Meßberg (U1).

What People Are Saying About Speicherstadt
Not too difficult tour,although it can be tiring for people who do not have regular physical activity. But certainly this is the very best way to get to know the city in the short time. Lisa is fabulous guide
Really pleased we booked this. The guides gave good information and the harbour tour was brilliant. It took about 90 minutes and it was on a paddle steamer - not some tiny barge. If you've only got a limited time in Hamburg, this option is a must.
We booked our city tour on line. It was a quarter of the on board cruise tour price. All the people we met were most helpful,, it was wonderful. We can thoroughly recommend it, and will most certainly do it again. We'll done 'Get Your Guide'.
The guides were good and we would recommend to everyone to get off at the stop for the miniature wonderland. It is the most fascinating place we have seen that has been made by man. Loved it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day on the hop-on hop-off bus in Hamburg and found that we could see much more of the city than we would have under our own steam. It also helped to have an English commentary and we found out quite of lot of information about Hamburg than we previously knew.
