As a huge fan of everything even remotely spicy we visited Spicy's with high expectations. It is located on the second floor of one of the old warehouse buildings and we had to look around to find it as there was little visibility. Anyway, once we got in, we had to pay an entrance fee, which is out of proportion... More

As this is the only spice museum in Europe I expected a little more than this. The only positive thing about that visit is that you could catch up some new recipes for your kitchen. You were able to take some spices to smell and feel the structure but that's all it's more about selling spices and additional goods

Very disappointed i expected to see spices in their origin state to the finished product. All we saw was sacks of spices, very little english translation. Museum lasted twenty minutes. We still have no idea what the pepper sachets were for? Dont bother going.

This is a very unique museum and could be a great tourist spot. Unfortunately most all of the display descriptions are in German so the interest wains quickly when you can't read them. I love to cook and was really looking forward to this museum and was sooooo disappointed. Some of the displays look really interesting and seem to have... More

I was a little underwhelmed, but I enjoyed being able to go inside the warehouse building, once I found the place. On Saturday they had no sign outside that I could see, and I missed it from the other side of the road. On Sunday, the sign was out and I had no problem. As another reviewer said, you get... More

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
