Reeperbahn, St. Pauli, Hamburg, Germany - 25th November 2009

By: babyamy

Katrin has to go to another library today and since she arrived in Hamburg very early, she showed me some interesting places.

The first place we found by chance: It's the McDonalds restaurant at the station Altona. It looks a bit strange, right? Well, McDonalds has decided to change the background colour of the logo from red to green.

The we took the S-Bahn (a kind of subway) to the station Reeperbahn. It's one of the most famous streets of the world, because it's the city's red-light district. In German it is also called "die sündige Meile" (the sinful mile). During the day it's not really interesting there and don't look different from other streets, but at night it's a total different world. Today there are many clubs and bars and theaters, that's why it's called "party mile", too. In one of the clubs, the Start-Club, the Beatles started their career.

When we walked along the Reeperbahn, we discovered some more interesting things:

A statue of the singer Hans Albers

an interesting wall painting

the famous police station Davidwache

A bar and the theater Schmidt's Tivoli

At the end of the street we could see another statue in the distance, it's Otto von Bismarck. He is a very important figure in the German history. We was the first chancellor of the German empireand he was the one who invented several insurances for the people.

Across the street is the Heiligengeistfeld, a huge field were these days is a huge fair, the Winterdom. Unfortunately it opens at 3 p.m. and it was still 9.30 a.m.

We finally arrived the Hamburg Museum, whose library Katrin wants to use. But we had to spent some time outside because it opened at 10 am.
