The Beatles-Platz (German: Beatles Square/Plaza) is a plaza in the St. Pauli quarter in Hamburg, Germany, at the crossroads of Reeperbahn and Große Freiheit. It is circular, with a diameter of 29 metres (95 ft) and paved black to make it look like a vinyl record. Surrounding the place are five statues, representing The Beatles: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Stuart Sutcliffe, George Harrison, and a hybrid of drummers Pete Best and Ringo Starr each of whom played with The Beatles at times during their Hamburg engagements.
This plaza was built to commemorate Hamburg's importance in The Beatles' history. The draft design was by architects Dohse & Stich during a common tendering. Building the project cost about €500,000 and was split among donations, sponsors and the city of Hamburg.

Not much to see. The Beatles Platz is situated in one of the most repulsive districts I have ever went. Needless to say it's just impossibly dirty and the smell is horrible. But if you are willing to put up with all the unpleasant surprises, it is a notable place in Hamburg with a great selection of sex shops. However once was enough - I will definitely not go back there.

This is my adventure day when I went to visit in Hamburg and had a small time to spent in The Beatles platz where these band had spent many year in Germany. I visited this place as a Beatles fan because I knew that Beatles had spent here a small part of there life. Yes this area is only for adults because it is located in red light district of Hamburg but still beautiful.

Interesting that the Beatles spent time here. Not particularly interesting metalwork though, and right at the bottom of the red light street.

A long way to go for four tiny barely recognizable metal sculptures

Beetles place, near former Star Club at Grosse Freiheit 39 Street. The Beetles figures are presented in metallic outlines, their famous songs engraved on the floor.

Nice that the band are in some small way remembered (extra star). The accent is on small. Five (Sutcliffe and a Best / Starr amalgam) wire 'sculptures' shaped like crime scene body outlines on a circle of concrete. Worked Paul out as he played left-handed, despite a local drunk using the legendary bassist as a coat stand. If this is a platz Leicester Square is Greenland. Thankfully no one had the cheek to offer a guided tour, as far as I'm aware. Disappointing.

Cool to see where the Beatles got their start.

Place is full of drunks and homeless people and the sculptures have been ruined by graffiti and stickers.
