Hamburg’s world famous red light district stretches along either side of the Reeperbahn, the charmingly kitsch backbone of the proudly alternative St. Pauli. The ‘Kiez’ took shape right on the city limits, a home for outcasts and vagabonds who had nowhere else to settle. The legendary nightlife that makes it so popular highlights the tolerance of a neighborhood that has seen (and survived) it all: riots, prostitution, drugs, organized crime, world wars, booms and busts. Discover this quarter and the harbor that forms the heart of the city during a 2.5-hour guided walking tour. The maximum tour group size is 40 people. Also, the maximum per booking is 9 people.Description
This 2.5-hour guided walking tour departs at 7 p.m. outside the clock tower near the Port of Hamburg.
Hamburg’s world-famous red-light district stretches along either side of the Reeperbahn, the charmingly kitsch backbone of the proudly alternative St. Pauli. Its foundations as a refuge and self-made colony led it to develop into one of Hamburg’s most vibrant and welcoming districts. The legendary nightlife that makes it so popular highlights the tolerance of a neighborhood that has seen (and survived) it all: riots, prostitution, drugs, organized crime, world wars, booms, and busts.
Hamburg’s relationship with St. Pauli is complex. Its raw (and sometimes raunchy) edge stands in contrast with the image the rest of the city exudes, yet is an integral part of what makes Hamburg the much-loved city it is. New buildings and renovations compete with the thousands of residents who fight to keep the character of their colorful neighborhood. St. Pauli draws millions of visitors a year, and makes a massive contribution to the economy and fame of the city.
Along your way you'll see many important sights, including the Port of Hamburg, the Landungsbrücken (landing stages), the St. Pauli football club, the Davidwache police station, the Nobistor gatepost, Beatles-Platz, Altona Fish Market, U-434 (a Soviet spy submarine), Hans-Albers-Platz, and the Millerntor Gate.
The tour concludes in the area of the Altona Fish Market at about 9:30 p.m.Highlights
