“Well worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Went to the Spice Museum, located in one of the ware houses. It is small, but very interesting, also for children.
The warehouse architecture is something else, and on a sunny day, it is well worth it to take a walk around, or maybe sail the surrounding canals.

“Eclectic mix between historic and innovative, modern Hamburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

A truly amazing set up. Full of history but also loads of quirkiness! Mix this with new hip and modern mix used development and Europe's most expensive music hall development, The Elb Philharmonie and you have a wonderful eclectic mix. Enough to do for a day from coffee roasters to miniture world museum, which I loved. The dungeon is also there if that floats your boat. Talking about boats, the nearby harbour of course adds to the atmosphere.

“Great ambiance, interesting history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

This collection of warehouses are actually a World Heritage Site and embody the interesting history of Hamburg as a Hansestadt. A Hansestadt is a kind of League of the most Influencial Citys in Germany. And Hamburg was in the top 3 list.
The houses are still today used as warehouses and therefore still have some of that old, dusty magic of trading, travelling the foreign seas and selling exotic items. The buildings are not just empty shells for show but still have their soul intact.
And you can feel that when you take a stroll through the quarter.
Am Sandtorkai 36, at he Specierstadt Museum, you can dive deeper into the history & the ambiance
