After our recovery period at the hotel we took the underground to investigate the Reeperbahn or as a neighbour of ours once described it, the whores of Hamburg. At first I thought there was a street market on but in fact there were hundreds of tables, full of people drinking beer and wine, so we joined them! There was live music playing and all manner of people at the tables enjoying themselves. We couldn’t find any restaurants though so we headed back to our local which serves food until late.
The red light district has become very much a tourist haunt, much like Amsterdam, although there were still many working girls in the side streets.
