HAMBURG'S WAREHOUSE DISTRICT
“Do you like exposed brickwork and converted warehouses?”
Not a hipsters anonymous meeting…👨🏭
This, is Hamburg’s Warehouse District. The OG of the industrial look.
The proper name is Speicherstadt but nobody can say that after five craft beers - so stick to Warehouse District 🍻
Built from 1883 to 1927 this is the largest one in the world and it has a shiny UNESCO World Heritage badge to prove it 🏅
Spindly canals twist around Neo-Gothic buildings. There are 17 warehouses in total where merchants used to pull up and sell coffee, tea, chocolate, and spices 🍫
Straight up German Del Boy vibes.
These days museums have replaced chocolate traders and your more likely to see a tripod stand than crates of saffron.
Tick off the German Customs Museum and Afghan Museum before heading to Miniatur Wunderland model railway...
Teeny tiny ant-size gondolas sail along the worlds largest model train exhibit and the Scandinavian mountains are pavlova-sized 🐜 These mini worlds will blow your mind 💣
Finally, hit the Museum of Coffee for industrial roasting equipment, coffee grinders, and a cosy little cafe with a caffeine-friendly gift shop ☕
Not about culture and coffee? These buildings with turret tops and arched windows are photogenic af. Obscure insta angles has your name on it 📸
