Off to Hamburg with friends for my first FC St Pauli match. We arrived on the Friday which luckily happened to be the first night of the Hamburger Dom. A massive funfair with loads of rides, food and beer. Picked up the ticket from the Fanladen (massive thanks to Justus) and popped into the Jolly Roger for a quick beer or five.
Hamburger Dom and some beer, wurst and a good wander round. Finished up with some beers back at the hotel. Up early on the Saturday morning and off to the match. I have to say the atmosphere was fantastic. Standing tickets in the SüdKürve and with a packed crowd. The Ultras were up on the fence and the chanting was amazing.
Loved the whole thing. Had some quick beers on the Reeperbahn and back to the hotel to meet with the missus and it was off to the Opera. La Traviata at the Hamburgische Staatsoper. A very strange combination of cultures…..
