G20 Summit Hamburg St. Pauli — Entertainment District
It has to be Hamburg's most famous city district: St. Pauli. From the G20 Summit's main venue at Hamburg Messe & Congress, it's not far to the city's most famous street: the 'Reeperbahn'. This is where people from all over the world dance, drink and party until sunrise.
The lively music scene of St. Pauli has been a springboard for many artists. In 1960, a no-name band from Liverpool performed at the Indra Music Club, and after gaining a faithful crowd in the nearby Star-Club, went on to achieve international fame as the Beatles. Still today, St. Pauli boasts the highest density of live music clubs in Europe. The annual Reeperbahn Festival in September is a great way to sample both local and international music.
The district is also home to one of Hamburg's two professional football clubs: FC St. Pauli, with its famous Jolly Roger-flag, has gained a cult following all over the world.
Within a five-minutes walk from the 'Reeperbahn' lies Hamburg's impressive port. Find a spot at the Landungsbrücken piers to watch large container ships passing by, stroll along the waterside and visit the city's Elbstrand river beach.
