The Guevara among boroughs
[Part I] St. Pauli is located in the Hamburg-Mitte borough and is one of 105 quarters of the city of Hamburg in Germany. Situated on the right bank of the Elbe river, the “Landungsbrücken” (jetties) are located at the northern part of the port. Back in the days this proximity was ideal for sailers who were hungry for more than just food.
So St. Pauli became home to a world famous red light district, the “Reeperbahn” but has more to offer. The soccer club FC St. Pauli’s headquarters and home stadium is located here and it’s also Germany’s center of the far left who don’t shy rather unorthodox methods in their fight against capitalism. There have been heavy and serious fights during the last decades around Hafenstraße, Rote Flora and Bambule. The most recent events took place during the G20 summit and will be memorized as the most violent outbursts ever.
