St. Pauli Landungsbrücken
St. Pauli Landungsbrücken, also known as the St. Pauli Landing Stages, are a part of the Hamburg Harbour. It is found between the lower harbour and the Fish Market. These historic piers are a major tourist attraction in Hamburg, as well as a central transportation hub for the city and surrounding regions.
Originally the St. Pauli area used to be where sailors would go ashore to have their drinks, and there is still a bustling nightlife in the area. The most popular places are nestled along the famous Reeperbahn street, but there are also several other nice places in the surrounding areas.
Hamburg's St. Pauli Landing Stages and beyond
First built as a steamship terminal in 1839, the St. Pauli Landungsbrücken consist of a number of floating pontoons, with ten movable bridges connecting the pontoons to land. During the Second World War the piers were destroyed, but rebuilt in the mid-20th century. Today it still stands to serve ferries, harbour tour ships and catamarans to nearby towns.
After taking in the St. Pauli Landing Stages, there are a plethora of shops, bars and restaurants all within easy reach. Many wider Hamburg attractions are also within strolling distance, making the Landungsbrücken a perfect place to begin a German adventure. Visit the city’s museum and the fascinating Miniatur Wunderland, where you can also see a miniature version of the airport under the name Knuffingen.
