St. Pauli, Hamburg

(3/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Located near the river Elbe's port, St. Pauli is home to the red-light district of Hamburg and known for its daring nightlife--but during the day, it is a hip and interesting neighborhood. Leave the Reeperbahn, the main thoroughfare, if you'd like to see another side of the area. Populated by many students, artists, and immigrants, the neighborhood has a diversity that gives it its eclectic and cosmopolitan character. Walk the streets the Beatles did when they lived here, or catch a game of the local St. Pauli soccer team at the stadium. Explore the smaller side streets to find budget-friendly eateries and bars. The neighborhood is gaining popularity, and gentrification is taking hold, so safety is not a big problem, despite the seedy nature of the area around the Reeperbahn. By using our Hamburg itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to St. Pauli and other attractions in Hamburg.

  • I came to explore the Freiheit Street area for Beatles related landmarks. Along the way, there is a seedy area with strip clubs. But I also saw theaters, cafes, and other interesting sights. Just keep...  more »
  • Who wants to take on the obligatory Kizbesuch it should be necessarily only in the evening on his program continued. During the day, this corner has what rather social focal point and backyard? But in the night the colourful signboard advertising make up for it. The Koberer are also no longer what it once was. Or had the time, 23:00, still no joy?

  • Should you take. Two hours with an insider. Sets the mood and you get other insight and info from the Hamburg Kiez. Eddy, ex - bodyguard of Udo L. makes a witty cool tour of the district. However, I'd want to do voluntarily party there on the weekend under massive threat of violence. Everything but quite grubby by day.
