Speicherstadt

Edit This

Late-nineteenth-century quarter on the waterfront with tall, ornated warehouses belonging to a bygone era, but still very much in use. The “Speicherstadt” is a magical place to stroll around and crisscross the bridges – on a sunny day it has even the same flair like Venice or Amsterdam.
