Caught the train into St Pauli station and walked the length of Hamburg's main "red-light" street. Got all adventurous and returned at 11pm by a different train line to Ulzburg Sud, where we had parked in the park-n-ride.

On the 23rd floor of "Dancing Towers", one of the four skyscrapers built on Reeperbahn redevelopment sites. Nice view and friendly bar staff. €15 (with tip) for a large beer and a wine.

The dark building with the odd-shaped roof at stage-left is the Elbphilharmonie concert hall in Hafencity. This unfinished building is destined to be Hamburg's signature building and it is experiencing massive cost and time over-runs.

Up this side street is the club where many celebrated artists played in the 60s.
