In this article you will find all visitor information for the Spicy’s Spice Museum in Hamburg.

Spicy’s Spice Museum is an interesting museum in Hamburg’s Hafencity , the former warehouse district in Hamburg. In former times, the Speicherstadt was probably the largest warehouse in the world. Goods came to Hamburg by ship from all parts of the world and were temporarily stored here. The goods also included spices. A large proportion of all the spices that Germany imported passed through the Speicherstadt. In addition to spices, coffee, cocoa, tea and carpets were other traditional important import goods at the Port of Hamburg.

For many visitors, a highlight of Spicy’s spice museum is the tasting of the spices. This is possible in a special part of the museum. This is very interesting, as you don’t know many spices at all. Completely new flavours.

In addition, there are some machines for processing and packaging the spices in the Hamburg Spice Museum. There is also a lot about packaging the spices, such as tea in boxes or coffee in bags.
