Dockland Warehouse District
Built at the end of the 19th century, the Dockland Warehouse District, or "Speicherstadt", is the world's largest warehouse complex. The warehouses, many of which are up to eight storeys high, are all made of brick; the copper roofs and small towers serve as decorative features. Interestingly enough, the historic Speicherstadt still serves its original purpose and a multitude of different wares, from spices to carpets, are stored in the huge warehouses erected by local merchants over a century ago. Some of the rooms of the warehouse have been converted into museums for the visitors better understanding of the place and history.
It's hard to find scenery like this. Taking a stroll over the bridges and through the massive brick warehouses is an experience not to miss. Towards the east end are some gorgeous ivy-overrun buildings as well. A must-do for any visit to Hamburg.
