The colourful, strident St. Pauli district is especially worth a visit. Who hasn’t heard of the famous Reeperbahn pleasure mile? It is a hive of colourful activity, especially at weekends, and has something to offer for everyone, whether you’re looking for fun, culture or something quirky and original. There is a particularly wide variety of theatres on the Reeperbahn. Everything is within walking distance, from thrillers at the Krimitheater to musicals at the Musical-Theater.
And if you fancy going shopping in St. Pauli on a Sunday morning then the Fischmarkt is just the thing for you. From early in the morning at Hamburg’s Fischmarkt the vendors are hard at work pitching their wares. It’s a spectacle not to be missed. The Port of Hamburg – gateway to the world. Even a short walk from the Baumwall to the Landungsbrücken (landing stages) is an inspiring sight. You get a great impression of the port, with the muffled horns of the ships sailing by, the seagulls, the wind and the view out to the great museum ships, such as the Rickmer Rickmers.
