Charity:We always calculate the prices as low as possible. If there's a win anyway, most of that will be donated to charity or supporters projects. Recent parties raised quite a bit for good causes in Glasgow, Ireland and St. Pauli! Thanks to all who came to the party and made that possible.
Match: FC St.Pauli vs. Greuther FürthFC St.Pauli will play at home to Greuther Fürth, a classic - we've played that time at two previous St. Pauli - Celtic parties and their supporters were very ok. St. Pauli won the away leg 4:2, let's hope for 3 more points to keep our small chance of going up to Bundesliga 1.
Friday, March 28, 6.30 pm this date is confirmed by the German FA and will not be moved
As every season, all St. Pauli home matches sell out, but we managed to reserve a special allocation for this match. For reserving tickets, see the below.
Getting Tickets For Party And MatchPlease reserve your tickets by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We take reservations from now on. You must state the names you want tickets for (to avoid double bookings) and your first and second preference for the match ticket:
- North Stand terrace: 12+1 Euro
- Gegengerade terrace: 14+1 Euro
- South Stand terrace: 12+1 Euro
- North Stand seats: 25+1 Euro
We can't guarantee that you'll get the ticket you prefer but we'll do our best. No pre-payment, you'll pay when you pick them up at the Fanladen. As we have had bad experience with significant numbers of people not picking up their tickets we'll have a strict deadline for collecting them! If not picked up in time, they'll be given to those on the waiting list. The deadline will be announced once the match date will have been fixed.
Watching The Celtic FC Match TogetherIf the match will not be parallel to the St. Pauli match, the Knust (the location of the party) will show the match on big screens, as will the Jolly Roger.
The Jolly RogerThe Jolly Roger is the main St.Pauli supporters pub. It's non-profit, all money goes into supporters projects. It's located at Budapester Straße close to the Millerntor stadium and 5 minutes walk from Reeperbahn.
For the party weekend, the opening hours will be extended, starting at noon til about 6 or 7am.
The FanladenThe Fanladen team is responsible for taking care of the fan scene and the Fanladen is the key coordination center and one of the central meeting points for the fans as well as the home of many fan organisations (e.g. board of registered supporters clubs, anti-repression group) and fanzines. It offers special assistance to local and international supporters and visitors that want to get in touch and visit an FC St.Pauli match.
The Fanladen offers a small range of merchandise and is a nice place to meet people and have a drink as well. With all the money going into social and supporters projects, money spent here is very good money. ;)
More info on their website.
Security and General AdviceThe St.Pauli district is a party and red light area so you should take all the usual precautions such as keeping money safe and having a copy of your passport. Some of the more shady bars along the Reeperbahn might try to fool you with the price of a drink, so if you really wanna go there order from a menu rather than just ordering 'one beer' and never let any of the staff order a champagne on your expense. We have had supporters with 600 Euro bills at lunch time in recent years - there are better ways of spending money.
It's not illegal to consume alcohol on the street in Hamburg, but since recently there's a complete ban of glass bottles at the Reeperbahn and some of the streets and places just off the Reeperbahn. No problem to drink alcohol from plastic bottles, though, and the ban does not apply to the areas further north and south of the Reeperbahn such as where Jolly Roger etc. are. Consumption of alcohol is forbidden on public transport now.
Opening hours: there are no limits for the pubs and bars, some close earlier, others haven't closed in the last 20 years. There will be still enough bars open (almost) all night and all the St.Pauli/Celtic related places should be bouncing til the morning. Ask us or in the hotels for further advise. Supermarkets in the St.Pauli area are open every day except for Sunday.
Be a bit careful in the area south of the Reeperbahn. There are a couple of HSV pubs in that area and while it is not too dangerous in general, it's defo better to remain in groups or rather avoid it during the night. Only very very few good places there anyway, more expensive, touristy etc. Better stick to north of the Reeperbahn and the places we recommend on the map.
Getting to Hamburg/St.PauliFrom Hamburg Airport
Take train S1, departing from one of the terminals, simply follow the signs. You should be able to simply stay on the train til you reach train station Reeperbahn. It's a wee bit quicker if you change trains 2 times, but this way is easiest. Will stop in Wandsbek and at central train station (Hauptbahnhof) as well, if you need to get out in those areas for your hotel. For a single one way ticket choose ticket no 3 which should be about 2.85 Euro. If you are a group of 4 or 5, you can choose the all day group ticket F3 which is about 10 Euro. You can pay by cash or credit card. Depending on traffic, a taxi is about 25 Euro.
From Bremen Airport (Ryan Air)
If you are traveling after 9 am on a work day or on a weekend, you can use the "Niedersachsenticket"/"Lower Saxony Ticket" which costs about 28 Euro and is valid for a group of up to 5 people. You can get it at the airport information (just follow the signs) and it's valid for the tram (line number 6, heading for "Universität", get out at Bremen Hauptbahnhof), the Metronom train to Hamburg (leaving Bremen on .28, e.g. 2.28 pm, 3.28 pm etc.), and public transport in Hamburg.
The alternative is the bus, it costs 14.50 Euro per person if booked online, about 16 Euro on the bus. Departing straight from the terminal and getting you to the Hamburg central bus stop ("ZOB") next to the central train station ("Hauptbahnhof"). https://tickets.bus2fly.de/tickets
From Lübeck Airport (Ryan Air)
Take the bus, departs directly in front of the airport terminal and it's about 10 Euro. You can only pay at the bus.
From Berlin Airport (Schönefeld or Tegel)
The fastest is going by train, but can be costly:
There are bus companies as well:
After arriving at central bus and train station in Hamburg:
To get to St.Pauli district, you could take either U3 (yellow line) to stop St.Pauli or S1 (green line) to Reeperbahn. Taxi would be 8-10 Euro.
