I had expectations of a more lucullic experience at Spicy's but I did not taste one single spice. Though I can see why it would be hard to keep the price at 4 € and having guests eat away at the interior it still is a bit of a let-down. Small plates with spice to stick your fingers in and... More

Spicy's isn't hard to find if you have modest map-reading skills or a GPS. It provides some interesting insight into the spice trade in Hamburg, which seems to have been fairly significant. Seeing photos and models of the plants from which spices come was worthwhile and some of the old processing machinery is cool. The staff were friendly but don't... More

The Spicy's Gewurzmuseum (Spice Museum) of Hamburg is difficult to find, it is a small loft at a second floor of an old warehouse in Hamburg's Harbor. Cost 4 Euros and the entrance tickets are spices (for us, black pepper). Interesting but small, not so impresive, I expected more. At the end everybody were sneezing.

Spicy' s is located on the second floor of one of the typical red bricked neo gothic styled warehouses. There are over 50 spices exhibited together with pictures and information on how they are cultivated, processed and transported also how they should be stored and recipes for their use. You are encouraged to touch and smell the spices on display.... More

We went to this museum beginning of August and I have to say this was a great place to tour. As your ticket you get a little envolope with black peppercorn which I thought was a great idea. So many different spices and next door you even can buy them. I think it is a need to see when you... More

This museum is one of our favorite memories of Hamburg. We thoroughly enjoyed it! It is especially interesting to anyone who likes cooking and baking. There were recipes posted for Christmas cookies; we took pictures of our favorites and then tried them at home. They turned out great! We received many compliments on these cookies during the holidays. It's nice... More

Our travel guide recommended a visit to Spicy's, and as it was a wet afternoon with long queues for the nearby Minitur Wunderland, we thought we'd give it a go. Spicy's isn't expensive but all the exhibits are in German - we were given an A4 sheet in English on entry - but this didn't link to any particular exhibit.... More
