Speicherstadtmuseum Hamburg Germany

The Speicherstadt used to be the largest warehouse in the world. Goods from overseas were stored in the many houses. It was part of the free port of Hamburg. Later, international goods traffic was increasingly switched to containers, and the warehouses were used less and less. In 2003, the Speicherstadt was separated from the free port. The old warehouses were converted and many new buildings were erected. The Speicherstadt became HafenCity, the largest new development area in Europe.

One theme in the Speicherstadt Museum is the goods that used to be stored there. Many revolve around the most important goods from tropical countries, such as coffee, cocoa and tea. You can also see the old packaging of the goods such as boxes, sacks and so on. Much of the interesting exhibition is touchable, which is especially appealing to children. Another area is about the work in the former Speicherstadt. The construction and history of the Speicherstadt are also discussed.

Our conclusion: We liked the little museum. You get a good overview of the former Speicherstadt.
