Did you know ...

which town has the most warehouses?

It's Hamburg. The legendary Speicherstadt (warehouse district) takes its visitors back to the days of colonialism. Built in the years between 1885 and 1927 on the Brook islands south of the historical centre, the neo-gothic red brick warehouses stored spices from distant countries as well as coffee and tea. The scent of those days is still wafting through the Speicherstadt museum. Apart of smelling the flavours you are explicitly invited to touch the exhibits.
