Speicherstadt is one of the most special places to be in Hamburg, definitely worth prioritising! A UNESCO world heritage site, this old warehouse district is a maze of bridges surrounded by towering red brick walls. It was built between 1883 to 1927, as a free zone for tax free goods transfers. It can really only be described in images, but nothing compares to the real experience of this beautiful, industrial, historical and most of all, unusual network of little roads and bridges. In actual fact, Hamburg has more bridges than Venice. The International Maritime Museum is in the Speicherstadt, and a worthwhile visit, whether you prefer to pop in, or go round with a more attentive view. The museum boasts a private collection of 40,000 model ships, uniforms and photographs, started by a little boy and grown to fill Hamburg's oldest warehouse. Open 1000-18000 daily, it's a really engaging trip that offers a decent interest for little ones and adults alike. The go to bridge, if you have to choose, is in the east. It's called Poggenmühle, and it offers a beautiful view down the canals and of the two bridges, with towering red brick walls framing a fantastic shot. The other absolute must-do in the whole of Hamburg is the Dialoghaus, or in English "Dialogue in the Dark". It's a sensory experience exhibition that's received international renown for its groundbreaking role in disability awareness and artistic prowess. A blind, or partially sighted guide leads you around this unique exhibit in utter darkness, offering an elevated sensory experience and a fascinating window into the world of those with partial or no sight. It's worth booking advance tickets for this very popular occasion. Photocredit to Magnus S, Tim Christopher Klonk, Michael Utech on Unsplash.
