The quarter St. George is the Gay-and-Lesbian-Hotspot of Hamburg, at least since the bookstore Männerschwarm (Lange Reihe 102 | http://www.maennerschwarm.de) has moved there. In the cafÃ© Gnosa (Lange Reihe 93 | http://www.gnosa.de), the scene is tattling by cake and tea.
In former times, this road was disreputable for its kerb crawling. Nowadays, nice localities are located here. Take a walk from the fish market, where you can eat fish or you go out for lunch in chic restaurants. At the old cruise ship terminal, you find the beach clubs in the summer. If you want to get a sensational view over the harbor, visit the top of the office building â€œDocklandâ€.
