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 worked in an art studio in this neighborhood for a couple of weeks. The neighborhood is full of local breweries but also red light Windows in closed roads with wooden stockade. The neighborhood is not safe at night. I've never had a problem, although I witnessed fights amazing. but I don't recommend it for the unwary and girls.
