Prostitution in Hamburg
Prostitution in Hamburg is legal and there are an estimated 4000 sex workers in the city providing services from licensed venues as well as on the streets. The city also enjoys good coverage from escort agencies as well as independent call girls.
Licensed venues include several varieties of brothel. You can find standard brothels as well as laufhauses and FKK sex saunas. Most of the erotic massage parlours also provide sexual services though the extent of these varies by venue. The city’s strip and gentleman’s clubs offer some close contact with private dances but not much more than titivation.
There are two main red-light districts in the city including one of Germany’s most famous prostitution zones; the Reeperbahn (see ‘Street Prostitution’, below). The city is also one of a few remaining places in Europe where window prostitution is still practiced.
Street prostitution is still in evidence in several areas but is becoming less common as more and more women take to the online classifieds and independent escort directories.
Prices for sex in Hamburg vary depending on where you are headed, even on the street the price can vary if you pick up in a touristy location.
Expect to pay around €30-€80 for sex with a street hooker, €30-€150 in a brothel and €100-€300 per hour with an escort.

Sex in Hamburg
Hamburg is a big city covering 755 sq. km and is three times the size of cities like Munich and Frankfurt. As such, though much of the adult entertainment venues are situated in and around the central red light districts, there are some establishments some distance from the city.
We’ve put together a guide to the most prominent businesses in Hamburg where you can find adult services.
Brothels come in many different sizes and formats around Germany from the traditional bordello to the FKK sauna clubs.
FKK and sauna clubs are slightly different than the usual brothel setup with guests paying a fee to enter the venue. Once inside, you can enjoy the fitness and wellness facilities which are well attended by prostitutes for hire. You can socialise and flirt with as many ladies as you like and negotiate services directly. Private rooms are available on site. As nudist clubs, guests must strip from their daywear and only use bathrobes (provided).

Hamburg’s street prostitution scene is just as well regulated and controlled as in many other German cities. Working girls tend to use the two main red-light districts of the Reeperbahn and Sternschanze to tout their business.
Both are notorious prostitution zones; the Reeperbahn is a historic area, and along with nearby Herbertstrasse, attracts around a million visitors each year. Herbertstrasse still has window prostitutes like the De Wallen district of Amsterdam and is still cordoned off with tall metal barriers to deter minors and women from entering. However, it is also believed that barriers are a way to prevent street prostitutes from competing with the window tenants.
In and around the Reeperbahn you can find women working for standard rates of €50 which includes full service with oral; most have a room nearby with many working inside the laufhauses but finding trade better on the streets.
In the east of the city, Süderstrasse also offers a good selection of women and many will offer a quickie for as little as €30.
