If you want an exhilarating football experience, then visit Hamburg. In they northern Germany’s major port city, you will find the Reeperbahn; more commonly known as Hamburg’s Red Light District. Die sündigste Meile (the most sinful mile) is the bustling nightlife center of the St. Pauli district in Germany. It has become a hipster tradition to eat bratwurst, neck some Astra beers and visit a match. This time it’s the intense Hamburg derby between HSV v St Pauli.
The rivalry between HSV and St. Pauli is a strange one. These two clubs have rarely played in the same league but the animosity between the two sets of fans is no less intense than other major European derbies. It’s the sort of game that is regularly preceded by HSV fans routinely greeting their opponents with a barrage of bottles, or vice versa.

Traveling around the world to experience football is one of the best things. However, you only truly experience football when you experience it beyond the 90 minutes. Join us for a weekend in Hamburg and experience the Hamburg derby through local eyes.
Of course, with fixtures being few and far between for this intense rivalry, the occasion is always cherished when it does come around, not least because the St. Pauli fans love to remind the HSV supporters that they’re ‘sell-outs’ or ‘soulless’. To St. Pauli fans, HSV represents much of what is wrong with modern football: star signings and hugely lucrative sponsorship deals. It is not jealousy, St. Pauli loves their image as a club who sacrifice trophies for telling their unique story, but you have to acknowledge the consistent superiority of HSV.
We’ll experience the derby of Hamburg through local eyes with HSV and have the perfect experience ready for you together with the club for this weekend. An unforgettable football experience is waiting for you…
