Große Freiheit- Celebrity at the Reeperbahn

Varied Pleasures in One Street

Große Freiheit (literally "great freedom") is a world-famous side street of Reeperbahn. It begins at Beatles-Platz and is home to many pubs, bars and entertainment venues. This is where partygoers hang out in the evenings and on weekends. Its name comes from the freedom of religion and trade guaranteed in the 17th century. The film "Große Freiheit Nr.7" with Hans Albers, from which the very famous songs "Auf der Reeperbahn nachts um halb eins" and "La Paloma" are derived, was shot here in large parts. You will meet Hamburg originals and somtimes also bizarre fellow men. The famous Star Club, known for the performances of the Beatles and other famous artists, such as Jimi Hendrix, was located here until 1969.
