Brothels on Reeperbahn
There are quite a lot of Brothels on the Reeperbahn. There is everything from mangy "staircase brothels" to flashy decorated places. You can easily go to a brothel and sit and drink a beer for a relatively cheap price without encountering any gangster owner. You may assume that the girls will be on you like flies. This does however that these places are not as suitable as pubs.
The so-called staircase brothels mentioned earlier is basically a stairwell of flats without front doors. On the various floors are a number of girls which offers you to go inside "her apartment."
Herbertstraße (Herbert Strasse) is a street shielded from other streets with large planks. These fences are designed to protect from view but there are openings at each end of the street where you can go through. This street is prohibited for women and children because there are prostitutes in shop windows which offers their services. The reason that it is forbidden for women to go inside the perimeter is probably to keep other prostitutes away.
We would again point out that this should not be seen as an inducement to purchasers of sex. This should be seen as useful information for anyone who is curious about how it works on the Reeperbahn.
