St. Pauli, Hamburg

#6 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Hamburg
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. Put St. Pauli at the forefront of your travel plans using our Hamburg driving holiday planner.

  • Today, St. Pauli is certainly the most famous district of Hamburg. Early in the 18th century, the Amüsierbetrieb in St. Pauli began Fair stalls on the Spielbudenplatz. This is followed by the 'oldest profession in the world". Today, the red light fades again. St. Pauli has become "more colorful". Central tourist magnet is still the Reeperbahn, but also the Hill district attracts many revelers and partygoers. The St. Pauli Fischmarkt traditionally has its very own charm... and everybody loves the Kiez football club FC St. Pauli.

  • St Pauli is famed by the Reeperbahn but this is not all this part of town has to offer: 1. St Michel church - stunning 2. Hamburg Harbour (Hafen) - lovely even in the cold 3. Business and shopping 4. ...  more »
  • Stroll through the passed and Sant Pauli is incredible, not only by the street art or cafes. It is precious in December with Christmas markets.
