St. Georg

St. Georg

St. Georg is definitely one of the most interesting areas in Hamburg. It is characterised by its urbanity and is home to various social strata and milieus from all of the countries of the world. Many artists have also made their homes here. Hanseplatz with its 17m high fountain is one of St. Georg’s main sights and is also a popular meeting place. St. Georg borders on Hamburg’s Main Station and has a similar red light and entertainment district to St. Pauli.

St. Georg Tourism

The “Lange Reihe” in St. Georg is one of the oldest and most beautiful streets in Hamburg and is by all means worth a visit. Every year the Christopher Street Day starts from here, a demonstration and parade by members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community, which makes up a sizable part of St. Georg’s population.

The Deutsches Schauspielhaus (German Theatre), built in 1900, is located in St. Georg and is considered to be Germany’s largest theatre, with over 1800 seats.

If you are interested in churches you should take a look at the Dreieinigkeitskirche (Trinity Church) in St. Georg, which has a wonderful baroque tower that was rebuilt in 1957. You will also find a large mosque at Steindamm, which is worth visiting. One of the biggest museums, the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe (Museum for Art and Crafts), founded in 1874, is also situated in St. Georg.
