The Reeperbahn

The Reeperbahn

The Reeperbahn is a living legend: in the old days it was a seedy red-light quarter for seafarers, during the 1960s it was a stepping stone for the Beatles. Since the 1990s the red-light district has been gradually transformed into a unique entertainment district with bars and clubs, art galleries, cabarets, theatres and top-class restaurants. The Reeperbahn, almost 1 kilometre long, is a “must” on the tourist route as well as Grosse Freiheit, the Davidwache police station or the Spielbudenplatz with its Panoptikum waxworks and Operettenhaus.
