Speicherstadt, which is close to Hamburg Harbor, is the largest pile-based warehouse area in the world. It is built entirely on oak stumps. It is a Gothic Renaissance multi-storey red brick building with small towers connected by rivers, streets and bridges. Hamburg is the most bridged city in Europe. Its completion is the symbol of the unification of Hamburg in Freeport and the German Empire. It has been an important economic lifeline of Hamburg. In recent years, it has been transformed into a tourist attraction. The complex has now become a landmark building in Hamburg.
Some people say that as long as you walk in this block, the tastes of coffee, tea, delicate spices and various colors will pass through the long river of time and space, swirling in your nostrils. It is a new Gothic complex of buildings situated on thousands of oak stakes, a self-contained world. From 1885 to 1927, the city was used as a warehouse. Streets, bridges and innumerable waterways make up the world of warehouses, located in the heart of Hamburg, a busy 300,000 square metre port. Witnesses of a great era for businessmen, warehouses can not meet all their requirements, office is also a must. So they built the first row of office buildings in Europe near the warehouse city, the so-called office buildings. To this day, people can see the witness of that prosperous business era - Chilehaus. The building was built by hand with 4.8 million bricks. Henry B. Sloman, a native Hamburg businessman, made his fortune by importing salt from Chile. He commissioned architect Fritz H&ger to build the tallest building at that time, with sharp corners designed to imitate the bow. Discovering, exploring and enjoying Speicherstadt and Kontorhaus viertel are situated between Elbphilharmonie and Hafen City, where tourists are bustling. You can find novelty in museums such as Hamburg Dungeon, Speicherstadtmuseum or Miniatur Wunderland. You can also explore in traditional workshops and taste the coffee and chocolate produced there. Of course, you can enjoy the mystery of this small world in quaint seaport bars and charming restaurants. And romance!
The first stop for hamburger punching is here. Originally for the mini-world, I came to the bridge to look at such a special building and could not move my feet. There are countless museums here. The famous Museum of Mini-world and Dialogue in Darkness is here (I want to experience the blind world in the Museum of Dialogue in Darkness, but unfortunately I can't provide Chinese service). The 125-year history of this museum makes it not only a legendary business development, but also a vivid history book. From 1881 till now, it has experienced the influence of World War I and World War II, and it has also branded the heavy history and past of Germany. But it's more ancient, newer and old. Today, it still attracts tourists from all over the world to come here and feel the real hamburger.
The Warehouse City Museum Area includes many museums scattered in this area, including the Micro World, Spice Museum, Hamburg Dungeon, International Maritime Museum and Customs Museum, each of which can tell you the history of Hamburg from different angles. It is highly recommended to arrange a good turn around here for 1-2 days and choose 1-2 museums of interest to visit.

Hamburg's warehouse city is very famous, so it's a worthwhile trip to Hamburg. There may be more from Block A to Block G. Looking at the warehouses on both sides of the river and the elevators on the back of the warehouses, you can imagine the prosperity of the year. Red bricks are especially beautiful.
It's about 6 - 7 stops away from the railway station. It's not far from the railway station. It's quite possible to walk all the way. There used to be many warehouses, and there were canals between them. Now many museums and restaurants have been built. However, because I am a one-day tour, I can only walk around and watch flowers, so the museum basically did not enter. This block is still more interesting. Suitable for passing photography, half an hour is enough.
