NEVER would I go to the Reeperbahn for any other reason than to search for some traces of the places, where the Beatles started their carrer...
Most of these places have disappeared and you may still see only the adresses like:
Grosse Freiheit 36 where the Beatles were introduced as newcomers in 1959
Grosse Freiheit 39 where the famous Star Club used to be - the Beatles had their first solo-concerts there

Reeperbahn got its name by the ropes (reep in the local dialect) that used to be produced in long halls. Today you have a lot of street-constructions going on, dividing Reeperbahn into the sinful north-side and the south-side that offers various good theatres and cabarets.

Address: Hamburg - Reeperbahn
Directions: Reeperbahn is a big street in Hamburg, take the metro and leave at "St.Pauli", 2 S-bahn-stations are OK as well "Landungsbruecken" or "Reeperbahn"
