Saint Pauli is a walkable neighborhood that's popular for its restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. Take in the natural beauty of the riverfront and parks—or broaden your horizons with some local theater. A stay at one of Saint Pauli's hotels makes it easy to venture out into the greater Hamburg area.
The museums and theaters provide some cultural flavor, while the monuments and historic sites offer insight into local lore. Stroll the halls at Panopikum, Hamburg Museum, or U-Boat U-434 Museum. You can check out the local talent at St. Pauli Theater, Schmidt Theater, and Quatsch Comedy Club. Monuments like Bismarck Monument, Fish Market, and St. Michaelis Church honor the area. Hans-Albers-Platz, Beatles Platz, and Peterstrasse are some local landmarks. Bring the family to Hamburger Dom, Hamburg Dungeon, and Miniatur Wunderland.
You can get some shopping done while you're here, or take part in any number of other activities. Heiligengeistfeld, Schanzenpark, or Botanical Gardens are ideal spots to enjoy the outdoors. Surround yourself with nature at Donners Park. With a shopping trip to Grosse Freiheit, Rindermarkthalle, or Bleichenhof-Passage Hamburg, you might find that perfect souvenir. Millerntor Stadium, St. Pauli Piers, and Holsten Brewery are other spots for some local fun.
A few of the most popular sights in the area include Moenckebergstrasse, Hamburger Kunsthalle, and Hagenbeck Zoo. Casino Reeperbahn, Operettenhaus, and Imperial Theater will also leave an impression.
