Gateway to the Future

Step into the metaverse with HONOR. Experience cultural treasures from the past and discover the possibilities of the future as the digital and physical worlds collide! We asked creative talent globally to reimagine the Wasserschloss in Hamburg's trendy Warehouse District. Check out Yunuene and Timo Helgert creative reinterpretations, brought to life by the AR maestros at ARLOOPA.

Since 1883

Hamburg's Warehouse District

The Speicherstadt is the world’s largest warehouse complex and is Hamburg’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site. Far from being a relic of the past, its picturesque network of buildings, streets, canals and bridges now play host to a myriad of cultural activities.

Watch Bärbel Dahms, Director of Hamburg's Coffee Museum take a stroll in the Speicherstadt as she reminisces about the district's history and contemplates what the future holds for this special corner of Germany
