Keys areas to check out in Hamburg

St. Pauli

This central district is a legendary stag spot for two reasons - its famous football club and the lively Reeperbahn. If you’re keen on having a classic ‘lads on tour experience’ (we’re talking shots, strip clubs and sex shops) definitely set your sights on the latter. Reeperbahn is Hamburg’s number one nightlife street that’s lined with bars and other alluring after-dark attractions... You’ll also find Beatles-Platz at one end of it - a square dedicated to the band who played gigs at nearby venues like Indra 64.


Sternschanze is found north-west of the centre and it’s Hamburg’s equivalent to hipster London hangouts like Hackney. You’ll spot huge graffitied buildings hosting numerous trendy bars where you can sip on litres of beer, expertly crafted cocktails or even flaming shots of absinthe. Fill your bellies with everything from burritos to juicy steaks at Sternschanze’s cool indie eateries or head to hole-in-the-wall music venues where DJs spin tracks into the early hours.

Here’s a slice of what's on offer to give you an idea:

Packed with quirky design features like bold wall murals and funky furnishings, Pyjama Park is a cut above your average hostel. It’s right on the lively Reeperbahn and next door to the Quatsch Comedy Club, meaning you won’t have far to stagger back after a night out.

A bedroom at the City Hotel Monopol

City Hotel Monopol

Also located on Reeperbahn, City Hotel Monopol gives you the option of clean, ultra-modern ensuite rooms which are all - thankfully - soundproofed. It’s minutes from an S-Bahn station and surrounded by museums, from Sankt Pauli local history museum to the Erotic Art Museum that’s actually a bar filled with hilarious artefacts which document the city’s seedier side...

A bedroom at the Arcotel Onyx Hotel in Hamburg

ARCOTEL Onyx Hamburg

This is yet another St. Pauli pick, but you’ll find it at the far east end of Reeperbahn, making it a little less rowdy. ARCOTEL Onyx Hamburg’s contemporary rooms feature mini bars and iPhone docking stations, plus there’s a spa and sauna for relaxing in when you’re feeling a bit worse for wear.

The Park Hyatt Hotel in Hamburg
