A prostitute walks down a corridor at the infamous brothel 'Hotel Luxor' at the Reeperbahn red-light district in Hamburg March 18, 2008. The owner of Hamburg's oldest and only family-run brothel, in the heart of Germany's most famous red-light district, has decided to shut down her business after 22 years and retire after a sharp decline in business. "It's time to go," Waltraud Mehrer told Reuters."It's a pity, but business just isn't what it used to be. The bar and rooms inside give an impression of the brothel's former glory, with dark wooden panelling on the ceiling, soft lighting and a retro style bar. But these days the Luxor looks dated. Its lack of neon lights and flashy pictures gives it drab appearance on the outside. Picture taken March 18. TO ACCOMPANY FEATURE GERMANY-BROTHEL/ REUTERS/Christian Charisius (GERMANY)
