We are open!
We are happy to reopen our museums (18 May 2021) and ask you to follow our guidelines for protection against SARS-CoV-2. You are allowed to visit our exhibitions as there is plenty of space to keep the distance. Unfortunately we cannot offer guided tours or other events in our museums. The museum cafés will stay closed for safety reasons.
Hamburg's UNESCO World Heritage
Speicherstadt and Kontorhaus District with Chilehaus
Speicherstadt and the adjacent Kontorhaus district are two densely built urban areas in the centre of the port city of Hamburg. Speicherstadt, originally developed on a group of narrow islands in the Elbe River between 1885 and 1927, was partly rebuilt from 1949 to 1967. It is one of the largest coherent historic ensembles of port warehouses in the world.
