Our night watchman Fritz guided us perfectly through St. Pauli! With a lot of humour, interesting details and a lot of chatting, we got a great insight into what is probably Hamburg's most famous district. The visit to the "Ritze" boxing ring was exciting, but could have been a bit shorter - the only small suggestion for improvement. Otherwise absolutely recommendable! (Tip: Only "Moin" is accepted as a greeting ;) )

Yesterday we went with night watchman Fritz and it was a super great tour. Informative, funny and super exciting. The time flew by. Highly recommended, should we come to Hamburg again, we'll do the tour again, many thanks for the varied evening lg from Austria
