Sometimes called Germany's answer to Amsterdam, St Pauli is located in the Hamburg-Mitte borough and contains the world-famous Reeperbahn, the city's red-light district. For a real taste of the nightlife, here are our top 5 places to go.
"The main street in the district for nightlife, sometimes described as 'the most sinful mile' in the city. You will not be disappointed by the bars and clubs along this stretch. "
One of the best bars on the Reeperbahn. With different DJs playing each night, it's a prime spot to stop for a drink.
On a side street from the Reeperbahn, you'll find the world's oldest tavern. With capacity for 1200 guests, come in and enjoy some Bavarian beer and live music.
If you're more interested in clubbing, then make a stop at Grosse Freiheit no. 36. Definitely one of the top night spots on the Reeperbahn, you won't be dissapointed.
With a main dancefloor, one in the basement, one in the garden, and one in the penthouse you can't go wrong in this clubbing haven, no matter what your tastes.
Despite a rather shady past, the red-light district of St. Pauli is now very safe for locals and tourists alike. Here you can have the night of your life and party until the sun comes up.
Hamburg has a wonderful public transpot infastructure, and at night, a special "Nachtbus" (night bus) service connects the outlying districts and the city center, so you'll never get stuck on the Reeperbahn!

What People Are Saying About St. Pauli
We booked the guided tour of St. Pauli, and can highly recommend it to anybody who's interested in seeing that part of Hamburg. The guide was very friendly and told us a lot of facts that we'd probably wouldn't have learned otherwise. Very happy with the experience!
We booked the English Tour and we ended up having a private tour for 2 people. The guide Katja rang half an hour before the tour to double check that we were coming and we were able to find the meeting point. Not something that other tour guide company do so often! Our guide Katja was excellent, very informative and ready to give more information when asked. She did a very interesting tour and also she was really discreet and not obvious at all in one contest where it would have been easy to do so. She knows everything about the place and being local she also will tell you the anecdotes about the city of Hamburg. Her English is perfect and I strongly recommend to ask for her for the Tour. The stop at the apartment on the main square is a nice plus given to the tour! A must do in Hamburg!!
Not too difficult tour,although it can be tiring for people who do not have regular physical activity. But certainly this is the very best way to get to know the city in the short time. Lisa is fabulous guide
The card allows free public transportation within the greater City of Hamburg, as well as discounts at numerous attractions and activities. My wife and I used the card strictly for free transportation and easily received the value of our card over the course of five days! The city is so well laid out that with this card we were able to leave our car parked for the duration and travelled virtually at all hours of the day and night just by showing our card!
It was a very interesting tour. We learned about the beginning of the Beatels. The guide Ian knew plenty of stories and anecdotes with which he gave us a glance behind the scenes and also lots of information about the very unique and anarchic hot spot around the famous Reeperbahn in St Pauli that one must have experienced. Thank you Ian for your enthusiastic way of conveying the message.
