Full description
Join your guide, a so-called Kiezbulle - a tall, broad shouldered, humourous local lad. The tour starts with a Zündkerze - welcome drink at the top of the Reeperbahn. Here you will learn about the history and origin of this famous area. Then you continue towards the red light district: go through Spielbudenplatz, Davidwache and Herbertstraße. Learn about life in the Kiez and its rules. Listen to both dark and funny anecdotes. The combination of multi-cultural individualists from all walks of life makes for an interesting mix of stories. Head on through the so-called Sadomaso street, past street prostitution and the bar Ritze. You will walk along the “Große Freiheit”, continue to the Hamburger Berg and back onto the Reeperbahn where your tour ends.

Tour had been pushed back by an hour, but were informed in good time, so it was OK. Especially the guide, a real Hamburg original, was very good and had many interesting details. Unfortunately, the bar where we were supposed to take a "break" was full, so we moved on. That was a pity.

Our guide Matze was just great, cool and super relaxed. We weren't bored for a minute and we would have loved to have walked the Reeperbahn with him for hours. Since Matze is a local, he can tell you about so many events and of course knows his way around. 2 hours of guidance were simply far too little. Should we ever be in Hamburg again, we will definitely do this tour again.

We really liked the tour, you got a great insight into the scene and our guide Matse was extremely personable and was able to give a lot of stories and information because he grew up in St. Pauli himself. We would warmly recommend the tour and thank you for the pleasant hours!
