    Welcome to St Pauli, Hamburg's party quarter.

    Around 20 million people visit this area a year, and that creates an obvious problem.

    Which isn't great for the locals.

    So now the area's "peeing back".

    Yup. They've covered some of the walls with a super-hydrophobic coating.

    And good luck to anyone who wants to relieve themselves against a water-resistant wall.

    And as Julia Staron, a spokesperson for the project says: not every wall has a warning sign, so consider yourself warned, street pissers.
