Speicherstadt Warehouse District
Speicherstadt, literally means ‘City of Warehouses’ and is located in the Freihafen harbor. This is quite an apt description as it is actually the world’s largest warehouse district, and quite an impressive sight. Building work began in the late 19th century and was completed in the early 1900s. The area consists of 17 warehouses in rows separated by canals, each of which are seven or eight stories high.
