Eat & Drink

Kaffeeklappe – The last historical coffee hut

It was impossible to imagine traditional port operations without the coffee huts. They supplied the workers during their shifts and offered the port people the opportunity to recharge their batteries during the break. When the workload was heavy, several shifts had to be pushed one after the other, and the workers could be sure that they were always supplied with food and drinks in the coffee flap.

Nowadays, the coffee flap in the head building, Shed 50A, offers museum visitors refreshments during opening hours. Our volunteers serve coffee and cake by prior arrangement. Thus, the guests of our museum have the opportunity to grasp this atmosphere with all senses in the last historic coffee flap of the Port of Hamburg.


Our museum shop “Zampelbüdel” was named after the linen bags used by the dock workers to transport their personal belongings for daily use. Here you can buy souvenirs such as books and postcards, key rings, ship models, maritime clothing, coffee and tea varieties and many other port-related souvenirs.
The opening hours are the same as for the Port Museum.
