Große Freiheit- Celebrity at the Reeperbahn

Multiple pleasures in one street

The Große Freiheit is a world-famous side street of the Reeperbahn. It begins at Beatles-Platz and is home to many pubs, bars and entertainment venues, where partygoers cavort 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, for which the very well-known songs "Auf der Reeperbahn nachts um halb eins" and "Paloma" were composed, was shot here in large parts. You will meet Hamburg originals and sometimes even bizarre fellow men. The famous Star-Club, known for the performances of the Beatles and other famous artists, e.g. Jimi Hendrix, was located here until 1969.
