Speicherstadt

Speicherstadt

The Speicherstadt is one of the main attractions in the great harbour tour. The world's largest integrated complex of warehouses was built in 1883, five years before Hamburg received its free port. Since 1991, the unique district has been given historic monument protection. The warehouses are built on oak piles and the district is crossed by what are known as fleets - canals that are flooded depending on the tides and can then also be travelled by ship. You can travel the narrow canals in small barges to savour the architectural details if the tide is right. A canal tour with a historic barge like this is an unforgettable experience. Most tours depart from the landing stages in St. Pauli. Groups can even charter a whole barge. The world´s largest contiguous warehouse complex is located in the Freihafen between Deichtorhallen and Baumwall. In July 2015 the whole complex has been nominated as a UNESCO- world cultural heritage site.

Chilehaus

Chilehaus

The Chilehaus is one of the finest examples of “Brick Expressionism” – an architectural style popular in Hamburg in the 1920s, which is characterised by the use of clay tiles and hard-baked bricks. Built by architect Fritz Höger, the Chilehaus constitutes the very centre of Hamburg’s Kontorhaus district. The name of the building is derived from the nitrate trade between Hamburg and Chile. Built between 1922 and 1924, it was one of the first of Hamburg’s high-rise buildings. The Kontorhaus district and the Speicherstadt district have been nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site 2015.

Hamburg's Wadden Sea

The states of Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein and Lower Saxony have designated their parts of the Wadden Sea as national parks. This highest category of conservation is an internationally-recognised rating for this unique natural area. Since the end of June 2011, the entire German section of the Wadden Sea, including the Hamburg Wadden Sea, is now a World Heritage Site after more than 9,500 square kilometres of tidal flats off the coasts of Schleswig-Holstein, Lower Saxony and the Netherlands were included in 2009.
