St. Pauli, Hamburg
(3/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • Neighborhood day has no greater importance, but that night turns and everything are lights and crowd. Streets full of theatres, bars, pus, clubs, striptease, sex shops, etc. Area in which appeared the Beatles with 20-years-old, to learn to play, and when they were still in the Group 5, thus have a square dedicated to them. There is a street where women are in shop windows, in the style of Amsterdam, but this street has two walls, one on each side and never cease to enter or to women or children under age 18. These walls appeared with the arrival of the Nazis to power, who wanted to maintain the morale of the Germans clean and pristine, and they thought that this was a good way.
