The Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe, or the Museum of Art and Craft, is located close to the Hauptbahnhof, Hamburg’s central train station. Founded in 1874, the museum is dedicated to fine, applied and decorative arts.

International Maritime Museum

3) International Maritime Museum (must see)

The International Maritime Museum is located in Hamburg’s HafenCity (harbour city). an area of former docklands that houses a number of offices, retail outlets and museums. Formerly part of the Free Port of Hamburg, it was removed from the port’s jurisdiction as it had fallen into disuse. This has allowed for the large former warehouse buildings to be redeveloped. In 2004, the area was awarded a grant to install a world class maritime museum in the docklands’ oldest surviving warehouse.

Miniature Wonderland

4) Miniature Wonderland (must see)

Miniature Wonderland claims to be the world’s largest model railway attraction. It is housed in an otherwise unassuming brick warehouse building on Am Sandtorkai, close to the Dockland Museum.

The railway lines themselves comprise 12,000 metres of track, carrying 890 trains with over 11,000 carriages. The model landscape is dotted...   view more
Spicy's Museum

5) Spicy's Museum (must see)

As one of Europe’s largest ports, Hamburg has been the gateway for many exotic products throughout its history. Still a busy dockland area, the city’s Speicherstadt district imports foodstuffs from across the world, including herbs and spices. Hamburg is one of the largest importers of spices in Europe, and home to the world’s only dedicated spice museum. Spicy’s, located on Am Sandtorkai next to the Miniature Wonderland attraction, is an interactive guide to the spices that have passed...   view more
The Dockland Museum

6) The Dockland Museum

The Speicherstadtmuseum, or Dockland Museum, is located on Am Sandtorkai in the heart of Hamburg’s historic docklands. Located south of the city centre, the docks were constructed from man-made lakes, which lead onto the River Elbe and towards the North Sea. Hamburg’s history revolves around these docks – as a founding member of the Hanseatic League, the city grew through trade links with nearby coastal European cities. Hamburg is still the third largest port in Europe, after Rotterdam and...   view more
Russian Submarine Museum

7) Russian Submarine Museum

A Russian submarine (in Hamburg!), put out of duty in 1991 when the Soviet Union collapsed, was established as a museum in 2002. You can have a breathtaking experience by visiting a fully functional 90-meter iron fish, which was used in missions in Cuba, for the protection of territorial waters of the Soviet Union and in secret missions on the US coast.

Operation hours: Monday - Saturday: 9 am – 8 pm; Sunday: 11 am – 8...   view more
