Speicherstadt -warehouse district- in Hamburg - Germany

Speicherstadt Hamburg Germany
The Speicherstadt (city of warehouses) in Hamburg is part of HafenCity (port city, a district of Hamburg) and was originally part of the free port. The warehouse district, founded on timber-piles, was expanded continuously since 1883.

6 loading canals, the so-called Fleete, facilitated the transport to and from the warehouses. Since 1991 the warehouse district is classified as a historical monument.

Today the development of the port city is characterized by residential and office buildings. A new overseas terminal for great passenger liners was built here.
