Counting Houses of Hamburg

Interesting
These office buildings, an imposing mass of dark brick, stand in the business and printing district of the city. Of particular interest are the House of Chile (Chilehaus) that stretches into the sky, the Sprinkenhof, a city within a city, and the warehouses of Speicherstadt. Built in the late 19C for the free zone, these buildings covering an area of 373 000m2 housed precious merchandise such as tobacco, spices, carpets and raw silk. Some of the buildings are now UNESCO World Heritage sites.
