If you're not very well familiar with the local German language variations, you're lost here. The performance Heisse Ecke is in local dialect and they may tell you that there is a summary in English available, but that does not work – of course. A meager performance where the noise of the passing underground trains (every few minutes) is clearly... More

as an english speaking person you might find it of no interest, as the show is in German, but if you understand German- GO FOR IT .... The show is fun - book a table when traveling with friends and you will love it even more - as it has cabaret character and you will be served drinks while enjoying... More

This is a lovely old fashioned theatre with great service and a good variety of shows. Here I have seen one of the best comedy shows ever. It's located amongst many restaurants, bars, shops and other theatres in St Pauli and easily reached by public transport.

I took a chance going to Schmidts Tivoli to see Hot Corner ( Heisse Ecke) as my German is limited and my partner's is negligible. But it didn't matter . The theatre is cosy , quirky , friendly and a great location for a great musical. Although a lot of the joke were lost on us . The atmosphere was... More

beautifull old theater - you have service and you can book a table! A lovely story about the "Reeperbahn" - in german - but I think, it´s easily to understand, what´s going on! I saw 8 times the musical - always love it! ;-)

The midnight show is a little more exciting and revealiing than all the other shows. It is definitly worth waiting for!!! Take a guess who is a girl - some say there is a woman mixed in with the transvestites

Get a beer in the haus bar. The staff are the friendliest in Hamburg. Downstairs the bar had brilliant decor and photos from the theatre on the wall. Try and get a seat in the balcony at night and watch the crowds and neon on the Reeperbahn. Brilliant.
