How to perform a spatial join of point and polygon layers in PostGIS?

I don't know how to solve my actual problem.

I have polygons and points (some points are located in the polygons) and I want to add the polygon attributes to the points when they are inside the polygons.

Does anybody has an idea how to do this?

You can use the st_within statement. So something like:

select * from point p1, polygon p2 where st_within (p1.geom, p2.geom)
