  Gosse Freiheit by Day

Jeez, if it's hobags and strip joints you are after the Reeperbahn and its surrounding arteries is the place to be.

Luckily our hotel was located right in the middle of this disgustingly fun area.

The streets were absoloutley thronging on weekend nights, a right mixture of people from couples, to groups, seemed to be quite a few stag nights and hen do's.

Littered in amongst some very dodgy establishments you will find an array of pubs and clubs catering for the non pervert.

Special notes go to the '99 cent Bar' on Grosse Freiheit, as the name suggests serving cheap booze to a mainly young crowd, aswell as belting out some good tunes. And to the China Lounge, a nightclub on the Reeperbahn, packed full of up for it clubbers intent on partying the night away till dawn.

As goes with the territory there are many touts trying to get you into their clubs, but they did'nt hassle us that much.

Seemed pretty safe though, there is a large police presence on the street, epecially at the weekend, and there is a Police Station located next to all the 'action', kinda bizarre.

Dress Code: Casual. Very.
