UNESCO has created 24 new World Heritage sites. One of them is Hamburg's Warehouse District. Euromaxx takes a visit.
The lagoon city is the new highlight of the world's largest model railway complex in Hamburg's Speicherstadt. From 21 February, the miniature gondolas will run through the canals of little Venice in Bella Italia.
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.
Over the course of its history, Hamburg has steadily developed into one of the busiest ports in Europe. DW's Eesha Kheny spent two days exploring the ins and outs of the bustling cultural hub.
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.
