Reception (Wednesday evening)

Wednesday (Aug. 31), 19:30 – 22:30, International Maritime Museum, Koreastraße 1.

Please join us for a Night at the Maritime Museum with food and drinks!

The reception on Wednesday evening will take place at the International Maritime Museum (IMM), which is housed in the heritage listed building Kaispeicher B (quay warehouse B), right in the center of Hamburg's Speicherstadt (UNESCO World Heritage Site) and HafenCity quarter. The building is the oldest preserved warehouse in Hamburg, built in 1878 in the neo-Gothic style.

Three thousand years' worth of maritime history are displayed on the nine ‘decks’ of the IMM with precious exhibits, about 50.000 model ships and 4.000 paintings from Peter Tamm's collection. There is an entire deck dedicated to marine research.
