From Beatles Bible:

The Beatles hadn’t been to Hamburg since 1 January 1963, following their final residency at the city’s Star-Club venue. On this day, however, they were greeting as conquering heroes by an adoring crowd. […] The Beatles played two shows at the city’s Ernst Merck Halle on Jungtusstrasse, each of which was seen by 5,600 people. A press conference was held between the sets. […] After the shows John Lennon and Paul McCartney paid a nostalgic visit to the Reeperbahn where they visited a number of people and places from their past.

If we like to think, in all modesty, that the Paul McCartney Project is the best online ressource for everything Paul McCartney, The Beatles Bible is for sure the definitive online site focused on the Beatles. There are obviously some overlap in terms of content between the two sites, but also some major differences in terms of approach.
