5 hotspots for a night out in St Pauli

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.

Reeperbahn

"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. "

King Calavera

One of the best bars on the Reeperbahn. With different DJs playing each night, it's a prime spot to stop for a drink.

Bierhaus Zillertalv

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. 

Grosse Freiheit no. 36

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.

China Lounge

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.

What People Are Saying About St. Pauli

A fantastic experience in the most famous district of Hamburg

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!!

excellent way to have a quick glance on the city

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

Tremendous value for public travel alone!

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!

Very interesting Tour through the vibrant St. Pauli

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.

Simply incredible. If you only get one day in Hamburg, do this tour!!

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!!
