I went here as we had heard a lot about it but i was left very dissappointed. The place is dirty and disgusting with rubbish everywhere. There are a lot of drunks and drug users intoxicated even during the day and most of the buildings...More

Well this is an eye opener for sure! Places like Amsterdam and Bangkok have nothing on Hamburg’s Reeperbahn! The bright lights, interesting sights and adults only Christmas markets make for a fascinating night out. We wandered the Santa Pauli Christmas markets for a bit, and...More

I came here in homage to the Beatles playing so many gigs in their formative years at the Star Club, as well as so many, many other Beat groups and rock’n’rollers. Seedy as it would have been then (I came during the day in case...More

It's one of the things Hamburgis famous for! Interest ing place to people watch with some restraunts dotted between the "glamour shops"! Big open air market area now set up as a Christmas Market....Repperbahn style of course!

At the first evening of the conference we started with a pub night at Reeperbahn, the colorful streets and the environment was lovely and very nice. We passed from pub to pub and it was fun .

The atmosphere at the Christmas market was incredible; relaxed and christmasy, not with all the normal stress and the big big amount of people (sure there were a lot of people). It isn’t an ordinary market either, it comes closer to some kind of festival,...More

This Hamburg Red Light area certainly has lots of “special” shops, shows and sights. Yes it is a bit seedy but holds a feral fascination nonetheless. also check out where The Beatles got their start.

I would probably get nice meals elsewhere although I’m sure you can find a decent place somewhere around there. This area is strictly bars and partying. Some higher end hotels on the street have some nice food and... More
