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.

The new museum with its lead object, the four-masted barque "PEKING", is one of the most significant museum projects of the present in Germany.

Free admission


Children and young people under the age of 18 have free admission to all SHMH homes and can discover their interests.
