Today, among other things, we went on a walking tour through the St. Pauli district. In pouring rain. Whatever. A plan is a plan. St. Pauli is famous as one of the most notorious red-light districts in the World with all the sex, drugs and rock’n’roll that you can and perhaps also cannot imagine. Last night, we conducted an on-site (just theoretical of course) study on the sex and drugs part and when we ended up the night sitting on the same pub on the very bench, where, among other big names, The Beatles used to drink a beer or two after a concert, it was clear to us, that it was a good decision to return for the rock’n’roll part on the next day and hire for that matter one of the best local tour guides I have ever met in my career. Not only was she very knowledgeable about all the international stars that used to perform in the local clubs, on every stop of the tour, she took out her ukulele and sang one song by The Beatles.
Since it was raining cats and dogs for the whole day, I didn’t take any pictures on that day, but I am happy that I can present to you photos and a video of the same unforgettable experience that I was lucky enough to see already in October 2017.
Here you can enjoy the tour of the not-so-posh part of Hamburg including a video with the performance of the amazing Stephanie Hempel from Hempel's Beatles tour.
