Not paying customs

Speicherstadt (warehouse district)

Speicherstadt by Reinhold Staden

The Speicherstadt (warehouse district) in Hamburg, Germany is the largest warehouse district in the world where the buildings stand on timber-pile foundations. It is located in the port of Hamburg within the HafenCity quarter and was built from 1883 to 1927. The district was built as a free zone to transfer goods without paying customs. As the first site in Hamburg, it has been awarded the status of UNESCO World Heritage Site on 5 July 2015.

  1. Wow what a fantastic shot so sharp. Such an interesting place and you have taken it at the best spot I think and time as well with the bus heading over the bridge. Lovely Reinhold 🙂

    • I was there during day time only. Difficult because of the massive shades of the buildings. The week after next we stay in Hamburg for a week. Housekeeping for a friend. Hopefully good weather and early morning fog and sunsets. Will be fun. Greetings. Reinhold
