Santa Pauli (Christmas Market Reeperbahn)
On the "Spielbudenplatz" (Reeperbahn).
Santa Pauli is really different - but not vulgar
The Santa Pauli Christmas market "on" the Reeperbahn (Spielbudenplatz) is for adult visitors and probably one of the most beautiful Christmas markets in Hamburg - unless you do not look for pure contemplation but a more sensual and erotic/exotic experience.
To get to the point: Santa Pauli is not a market with vulgar erotic mood. The Santa Pauli Christmas Market Reeperbahn/Spielbudenplatz is much more the perfect interpretation of a beautiful tradition in a particular environment.
Also at the Christmas market "Santa Pauli" you can enjoy delicious mulled wine, and the classical "Feuerzangenbowle". Furthermore you get jewelry there, souvenirs (the Football Club "St. Pauli" ist present here everywhere!) and other typical St. Pauli-gifts - such as dildos, sex-toys and more.
Erotic "on" the Reeperbahn / Spielbudenplatz
Only in a closed area (usually a tent at the end of the market) it is obviously very sexy: You will find erotic shows and "topless" waitresses there. All in all, the Santa Pauli Christmas market ist just as the Reeperbahn itself a "must" for visitors of the Hansestadt Hamburg during Christmas season.
By the way: A public toilet (for which you must pay unfortunately - what is on the other side not so tragical if you need one) exists in the car park "Spielbudenplatz" which is located beneath the "Spielbudenplatz".
