Tradition and style in a modern harbor

Hamburg’s historic origin is the river Elbe and its natural harbor, but now, life there pulses on every street as a small but buzzing metropolis. Many believe that the city is laid-back and even boring, yet a visit to the Reeperbahn’s tantalizing nightlife will quickly change one’s mind. A mixture of classes in the city give Hamburg an interestingly appealing diversity – there’s something to be discovered by everyone. The city is bustling and energetic, beloved for both its contemporary scene as well as for its cultural offerings.

Deutsches Zollmuseum

Smuggler's loot and everything

Stay Editor's Note

Situated inside a beautiful brick building, the Deutsches Zollmuseum is a very unique repostitory of all things related to customs. Over 2000 exhibit pieces here refect Hamburg’s long history as a maritime port of entry to Germany and all of Europe.

Visitors to the Deutsches Zollmuseum will see all kinds of artifacts from customes officer’s uniforms to smuggler’s loot. An added bonus here are the smells of such rich items as cocoa and spices from far away places. The kids will really enjoy this museum, so don’t miss it if you are in the area.
