Grosse Freiheit

Our tour began on the Grosse Freiheit, Hamburg's most famous pop-music street.

More than 50 years after the Beatles played at clubs on the Grosse Freiheit and Reeperbahn, the area is still popular with local and visiting music fans. (It's also safer than most tourists think.)

Beatles Memorial Hamburg

After visits to many Beatles sites, with plenty of historical anecdotes and songs, our tour ended at the Beatles monument in Beatles Platz.
