The Guardian about Beach Bars in Hamburg Sankt Pauli, the StrandPauli and the Strandperle – and why they are so HOT:
Strandpauli is one of seven outdoor beach clubs that make Hamburg the coolest summer city in Germany. While landlocked Berlin swelters, the other German metropolis is all balmy North Sea breezes and barefoot boozing in beach clubs, a seaside slant on the traditional biergarten that only open in warmer months; year-round Strandpauli is an exception. Sure, Berlin has similar bars. But only here can you scrunch sand between your toes as ships chug into one of the biggest harbours in the world.
