Heiße Ecke Imbiss

The Reeperbahn's "hot corner".

A cult institution at Hamburg's Reeperbahn and probably the only currywurst stand in the world that had its own Musical.

When visiting a Hamburg, a stop at the Heiße Ecke is a MUST. A snack with tradition and hot spot on the Spielbudenplatz at the level of the Davidwache, whose curry sausage fully reflects the heart of the city. The top priority in the Heiße Ecke kitchen is the quality of the ingredients: the legendary Heiße Ecke Curry Sausage was created especially with experienced butchers. And the unique sauces are made according to our own recipes. The well-known curry sausage is also available here as a tofu and poultry variant.

As a true institution of Hamburg, even a successful musical was named after this snack bar, which became a German musical hit in 2003 under the title "Heiße Ecke 24" and is still very popular today as "Heiße Ecke - Das St. Pauli Musical". The visitor experiences in Schmidt's TIVOLI "in the truest sense of the word" the taste of St. Pauli. With its curry sausage specialities, the "Heiße Ecke" snack bar has meanwhile cooked its way into the hearts of its guests.

St. Pauli - pure KIEZentertainment with a culinary snack and a cool ASTRA including the colourful hustle and bustle on the Reeperbahn.

Musical Heiße Ecke – The St. Pauli Musical

All of St. Pauli meets at the Heiße Ecke snack bar. The Pinneberger boys Mikie, Frankie and Pitter, the lovers Straube, the fence Henning, Hannelore from the night shift or the whores Nadja, Sylvie and Martina - for all of them, the "Heiße Ecke" is their market place.
