Exhibit
“It sounds like something for kids only, but a visit at the Miniatur Wunderland is for everyone!!! It's really amazing what they've achieved there. Try to beat the queues and go there early or book an advance ticket. You should set at least 2 hours aside for this but you can easily spend hours and hours.”

“Historically famous as the "red light district" St. Pauli does in fact offer a lot more than bachelor parties and tourist attractions. Starting from high end restaurant, musicals and specialized bars (e.g. Chug Club), you also have a football arena (St. Pauli) as well as several interesting tourist attractions/neighborhoods nearby (i.e. Sternschanze, Landungsbruecken, the harbor, the "Elphi" etc.). ”
