It is an original suburb where the 2017 G20 Riots happened. I went with several people, one of whom was a local to Hamburg & a history buff - I don't think I'd go there solo.
It is very interesting from a historical viewpoint.
Post-80's glory days european filth & degeneracy at its worst. Junkies, gutter punks with stray dogs, drugged out of their minds transvestites, people sleeping on a street.. prostitution,Corrupt police. utter misery and despair.
I’ve been coming here for over 40 years and witnessed so many changes, to be honest i liked it better way back all that time ago. It was crazy full of night life and of course sex!!

There are good and bad places in St Pauli. I visited with some friends from the UK and Germans. Beware Herbertstrasse (also known as Herbertstraße) where many of the beautiful young women are a honeytrap - they will agree a price but once you have...More
Punk and prepis is all the same streets, similar to what happened to the Che Guevara once its image got capitalized. Still, a little dirty and rough feeling can be felt there, only to be forgotten once you pass the margarita bars
We didn’t find St Pauli to be fun or artsy. It’s really dirty and graffiti isn’t art. The people were unfriendly and seemed to take pride in that. Credit cards aren’t welcome and prices seem to change. I wouldn’t go out of my way to...More
