Bike Touring Highlight
The Speicherstadt is known for its old brick storehouses, where spices, coffee and other goods used to be stored by ships from all over the world. Today, many different items are stored in the warehouses, such as the Miniatur Wunderland (largest model railway in the world), the Hamburg Dungeon, the Speicherstadt Kaffeerösterei or the Spice Museum.
The Speicherstadt is also, with the Kontorhausviertel and the Chilehaus, since 2015 a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A visit to the Speicherstadt is always worthwhile!

As a result of the new structure, the Speicherstadt is no longer part of the administrative district of Hamburg's old town, but forms the northern part of the district of HafenCity. Nevertheless, the term HafenCity is commonly understood to mean the former port utilization area, which is now in the focus of urban development, and Speicherstadt is regarded as an independent district.

The Hamburg warehouse district is the world's largest historic warehouse complex. It has been a listed building since 1991 and has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2015. The warehouses served as storage for coffee, tea and spices. The brick houses are built in the neo-Gothic style and stand on thousands of oak piles.
