The lanky midfielder was officially presented at a press-conference after signing a three-year deal at the AOL Arena.
Meier, who was generally regarded as one of the top young talents in Bundesliga Zwei last term despite St. Pauli's failure to escape relegation, was on Hamburg's books as a junior.
The Rothosen's sport director Dietmar Beiersdorfer expressed his delight at Meier's signing saying,
"We have already signed one of the best German U21 players in Bjorn Schlicke and now we've landed one of the best U20 players," he said.
"I really believe that Alex Meier will have no problems moving up to become a top class player."
