St. Pauli, one of Hamburg’s most famous city districts. The amusement mile on the Reeperbahn, the landing bridges, and the port provide a unique flair in this cult part of Hamburg. Indeed, the Reeperbahn has helped the district to its fame, but to reduce it to it would not meet St.Pauli.
The Reeperbahn, also known as Kiez, comprises an officially defined sub-area in the south of the district, where catering is not restricted. Apart from that, St. Pauli is a crucial residential quarter with mainly residential streets for the middle-class and workers’ areas. The city quarter is also very popular with students and young artists because of the cheap housing, the central location and the extraordinarily varied and tolerant environment.
In addition to the landing bridges and the Old Elbtunnel at the harbor, there are some famous places and buildings of Hamburg in St. Pauli. Including the city’s tallest building, the Heinrich Hertz television tower at the exhibition halls, and the Heiligengeistfeld, where three times a year the Hamburg Dom, the most significant folk festival in the north, takes place. A part of Planten un Blomen park is also located in the district.
