Hamburg – More than the Reeperbahn

Veronica Munk

Deutsche Fassung


In Hamburg, more than 2,300 women work in prostitution. Half of them are migrants. The network TAMPEP, which does social work with prostitutes by going out on the street and is active in AIDS prevention, health issues and the rights of female migrant sex workers, maintains contact with these migrants. Most migrants work from apartments in groups of two or three and come from Poland, Lithuania and Bulgaria. Women from the new EU countries also work independently.
