Top sights in Hamburg
Oozing with life and culture, the Reeperbahn is Hamburg's "Kiez" and red light district, but that doesn't mean anything goes. Is it safe? The police station in the center says so, but you should still abide by a few rules to avoid spoiling a good time!
Despite the police presence, skilled pickpockets are still a problem. Keep your cash and wallet separate and leave valuables at the hotel!
The Reeperbahn's music scene has been growing steadily since the Beatles played here when they were still a 5-piece! The Reeperbahn music festival takes place every September.
The Reeperbahn has some of the liveliest clubs and bars in Hamburg. Enjoy them, but don't be stupid. Neither the bouncers nor the police suffer fools gladly!
...Unless you're a very heavy sleeper (it's loud!) or don't plan on seeing much else in Hamburg. If the Reeperbahn isn't too much for you, it may well be too absorbing!
Obvious, right? But it's worth taking the opportunity to mention that most of Hamburg is extremely family-friendly with plenty to entertain children!
The Reeperbahn is a street in Hamburg's St. Pauli area between S-Bahn station Hamburg Reeperbahn and U-Bahn station St. Pauli. The whole district is famous for its nightlife on the north bank of the Norderelbe, where the Elbe river splits in two.
The Reeperbahn is worth seeing at least twice: by day as a bustling shopping street, and after dark as the beating pulse of Hamburg's nightlife!

What people are saying about Reeperbahn
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!!
We ended up having a private tour since we were the only ones that booked that night, even though it was a Friday night. Our guide was incredible - she knew everything about everything and had knowledge and experience way more in depth than I ever expected coming into this, and she was absolutely hilarious to boot! She had recommendations for everything, never skipped a beat or a building of interest, and her stories she had of relevant previous experiences as a guide in this area were both incredibly informative beyond what you'd normally ever get to hear and incredibly interesting to listen to. Could not recommend this more. If you do only one tour in Hamburg, make it this one!!
My two friends and I are so happy we joined the tour. We had so much fun and met so many great people. The guides did a great job at making sure that everybody knew when we were leaving for the next place, so people didn't get left behind - and was just overall really great guys. Would definitely take the tour again, if we get the chance. We did have a little trouble finding the meeting point. The area shown on the map, was on the wrong side of the road, and as tourists that had just arrived to the city, we were quite confused, but luckily found the group.
Our group of 9 people took the St. Pauli tour at 23 o'clock on a Friday night. All of us were very excited, and I would definitely recommend. Our guide, Kai, was exceptional! He was truely a local and gave us an honest and very inspiring impression of the city. We ended up in an area full of bars perfect for continuing our night out. Thank you Kai, for a great experience!
We had a wonderful and exciting tour of the Reeperbahn. It was a great mix of history, current conditions and also a little bit of the daily St. Pauli gossip. We had fun and enjoyed it. We can recommend the tour, especially for english speaking people. It is a great way to discover Hamburg and his famous red light district. Thank you and keep going! :)
