Good drinks - great food places - party places and find with those you are together with! Funny place but funniest in the summer period where it’s a little warmer

The Reeperbahn bears no comparison to the red light district in Amsterdam. Very very sleazy. We did our own Beatles path in the afternoon. Underwhelming, but coming from Liverpool it completes the circle. Our path ended with the former TopTen club doorway in scaffolding and...More
