The official Hamburg website (hamburg.de/lange-reihe) describes the Lange series as follows:"Alternative & relaxed
St. George is the gay district of Hamburg, and the Lange Reihe is the catwalk of the scene. On sunny days, the sidewalks in front of the cafes are full of tables where people sit, chat and "see and be seen" plays. At the same time St. George is the seat of the Catholic Archdiocese of Hamburg. Not far from the Long Line the two towers of the Mariendom tower up. Both worlds mingle in St. Georg as a matter of course and as a rule without conflict. "Another site:"It was not so long ago that the St. George district was not something that people liked to associate with - the street had its reputation: prostitutes, pimps, dealers - wherever you looked, dark figures lurked Although this may still be true of some corners today, the Lange Reihe has made an incredible change, and in 1998 the tide turned and suddenly fewer and fewer hamburgers wanted to make a turn around the district, instead they wanted to go there The street scene was previously dominated by commercial and craft businesses, but these were displaced by the bars and cafes, as the rents rose.Along, the rental apartments were then replaced by condominiums, as well as pre-and post-war buildings were demolished in order to also create housing there, which also drove off the drug scene, which is now mainly in the umlie areas.The Lange Reihe itself has also changed a lot. In earlier times, you could browse through so-called "poor bag shops" and specialty shops or engage craft shops, today you will find sweet little boutiques and numerous cafes. "Sources:

Best known street in St. Georg
If you turn into the Lange Reihe not far from the main train station and the Alster, you will find a colorful mile away from the big city hubbub. Small shops, numerous bars, restaurants, cafes and artist studios on the roadside bring a lot of variety and attract quite a few celebrities. Furthermore, the Lange Reihe and its adjoining streets have established themselves in an unobtrusive way as Hamburg's gay and lesbian quarters. The Lohmühlen Park and an ecological weekly market in the middle of the mile set further contrast points in the district of St. Georg. The Mariendom, the Hansaplatz, the Hotel Atlantic Kempinski and the Heidi Cable Square are located near the Langen Reihe. Shopping friends will surely find something in Mönckebergstraße.Ateliers and birthplace of Hans Albers
Located in a backyard, visitors will find the Koppel 66: Art and Craft in St. Georg. In the studios of the building, the latest works are exhibited and in the café Koppel on the ground floor can take a break. To marvel in the street are also historic half-timbered houses and the birthplace of Hans Albers - a plaque commemorates the actor and bon vivant of the Hanseatic city. Many houses on the street are listed buildings.
