There is no other place in St. Pauli that can be so deserted, quiet, wide and eerie as the Heiligengeistfeld. Whether to skate, to join the pop-move or the World cup fan festival, a mega event and biggest public viewing location in Hamburg (free entrance – only German games are shown) and atmospherically unsurpassable – vis-a-vis with the TV Tower and the park “Planten un Blomen”, it’s an incomparable setting. The Hamburger Jahrmarkt DOM is another good reason, back from 7 November till December 7th, with stalls and structured driving transactions, to get to know the Heiligengeistfeld.
Sharp winds can blow across the field coming up from the Elbe or rain will surprise you and it may well be that you forget for a moment that you’re standing in the center of Hamburg. There is no other place in St . Pauli that holds together the Reeperbahn, the Schanze and the Karoviertel like the Heiligengeistfeld does.
Centered on the edge of the field is the stadium where the soccer club FC St. Pauli is at home, recognizable by the skull the squatters brought in from the Hafenstrasse. Stay a while on the Heiligengeistfeld, let it sink in and confirm that this field is a gift to the quarter and the city.
The mighty high bunker from WW II can not be overlooked. Behind a 3.5m thick substantiate (nazi concrete) hides the bunker club “evil and dangerous” in which students lose themselves in wild nights or as a venue for the famous poetry slam.
