Where Hamburg’s Maritime Heart Beats

It's one of the places where maritime developments come together. After all, shipping history is world history, and there's no better place to tell it than right by the port, Hamburg's gateway to the world. Since 2008, the listed Kaispeicher B has been home to the Peter Tamm Collection, the world’s largest private maritime collection. On nine desk, ship models – including models made of gold and silver – merchant shipping, cruise dreams, naval history and marine research – precious exhibits from all over the world tell living history and stories from three thousand years of seafaring.
Let's come together where the maritime heart beats!
