Reeperbahn, Hamburg

#4 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Hamburg
Neighborhood Landmark
Reeperbahn undoubtedly holds the title as one of Hamburg's most interesting streets. It's home to both the city's red-light district and many of its most popular clubs. You can wander the avenue and take in the sights without partaking. This street traditionally has featured adult shows and shops. While the industry has receded a bit, remember that prostitution is legal here. Therefore, this street may not be suitable for children. Be sure to explore the side streets; Grosse Freiheit includes a Catholic church. To visit Reeperbahn and other attractions in Hamburg, use our Hamburg vacation route planner.

Where to stay in Hamburg

The most dynamic part of the city is the St. Pauli area, also known as Kiez. This is where tourists and locals brush shoulders among the many bars, shops, and sites. Jungfernsteig, or Neuer Wall, is an upmarket area with brand name shopping and luxury dining. Consider a stay in the bohemian quarters of Altona or the Sternschanze/Schanzenviertel. These areas burst with character and offer out-of-the-ordinary shopping and dining experiences at lower prices.
