Hamburg – Speicherstadt

An impression from the historic Speicherstadt (“Warehouse District”) in Hamburg.

The black and white photo shows a view from the Poggenmühlen Bridge to the Wasserschloss building. In the background you can see the Elbphilharmonie.

The Wasserschloss was built in 1905-07 in the typical North German architectural style of brick expressionism. Originally, the building served as a residence and workshop for dockworkers.

Today, the Wasserschloss is one of the most famous landmarks of the Speicherstadt and all of Hamburg. It serves as a backdrop for film and television productions and is a popular wedding location.
