Deichstraße is the oldest remaining street in Hamburg, Germany and a popular tourist stop in the city. Deichstraße dates to the 14th century; it is first mentioned in 1304. Located adjacent to the Speicherstadt, it now contains carefully restored 17th–19th-century houses, all that is left of the old harbour district. 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. Deichstraße and nearby Peterstraße now contain many of the oldest buildings in the city, including the oldest warehouse, at Peterstraße 27, built in 1780.
