Hamburg’s Oldest Street by janbreckwoldt

Deichstraße is the oldest remaining street in Hamburg, Germany (dates to the 14th century) Located adjacent to the Speicherstadt, it now contains carefully restored 17th–19th-century houses.
The “Great Fire” of 1842 broke out in Deichstraße 42 and destroyed many of the original buildings, but spared the southern end of the street spreading – driven by the wind – mostly northeastwards | Website | Profile
