In summer, UNESCO will announce its new World Heritage sites. The northern German city has nominated its Speicherstadt and Kontorhaus district.
No less than 41 sites - architectural and natural marvels - in Germany have been placed on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. Each is unique and authentic as well as popular with tourists.
June 4 is Germany's World Heritage Day. Here are some of the country's sites listed by UNESCO, and more on the process that led them to be selected among the prestigious World Heritage Sites.
The Speicherstadt is the largest warehouse district in the world and since 2015 a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The red brick neo-gothic buildings are very much a landmark of Hamburg.
