by Oleh

Is there some kind of daily travelcard for the local city transport in Hamburg as they do in Berlin (Tageskarte)? Cheers.

There are "All-Day Tickets", "9 o'clock Day Tickets" and "3-Day Tickets".
Sa, Su and Mo-Fr past 9am the "9 o'clock" ticket will do.

One tricky thing in Hamburg is the surcharge for the Express Buses. For all tickets there is also a more expensive version incl. Express Bus / 1. Class supplement.

Travel Tips for Hamburg

Weekly Market

by Leipzig

Don't miss to visit the famous weekly market near the Landungsbruecken. Besides the fish-market-hall you can stroll through the market outside where merchants selling all kinds of products ranging from food to clothes to needless things.

Electronics/Consumerables Superstore

by yooperprof about Saturn

"Super-Mega güt!" as they might say here!

Saturn is a wildly popular electronics superstore, roughly the equivalent to a "Best Buy" in the USA. On a Saturday in early December, lots of customers were flashing big cash as they racked up the bargains here. (I came in just to get some batteries for my camera.)

Germans still shy away from using credit cards, so it's not unusual here to see somewhere paying for a computer or stereo system in big Euro notes.

Hamburg has an airport,...

by Madschick

Hamburg has an airport, harbor, Autobahn and trainstation - so you can get there by any means of transportation!
The HVV = Hamburger Verkehrsverbund covers all of Hamburg and outskirts with buses, trams, subways and even ferry boats.

There are day tickets available (from 9 until 4.30h next morning) - but make sure to ask for group tickets/ family tickets as well!

Hamburg's biggest tourist draw

by sourbugger

No, not the Reeperbahn. In terms of numbers visiting just one attraction, Hamburg's No1 draw is a model railway set.

I had a bit of a dilemma about forking out 9 Euro to visit the exhibition and wait in line for a while to see over 1000 trains running about. The problem was that I was in Hamburg with Mrs Sourbugger who thinks such displays are silly, boyish and boring and without Sourbugger Junior who would probably wet himself several times over at the prospect of seeing the world's largest train set.

I finally made the decision to come back to Hamburg another year so I and Sourbugger Junior can take a hour or so to indulge.

The only bit I'm not looking forward to is the Queue to get in. This is what their website says about it. priceless.

"Please try to keep a smile in your face, since our layout is intended to lighten you up. We all can manage this if our guests arrive with a happy attidue. By no means must this attitude be lost in a row of waiting and grumpy people. So, if all this waiting gets on your nerves, just tell a joke or tickle the one in front of you!"

Lovely church, amazing views

by planxty

You really should visit St. Michaels Church, one of the landmarks of Hamburg. The church itself is very interesting but it is the tower that really impresses.

Walking up from the Fischmarkt on a Sunday lunchtime, I was surprised to hear a beautifully played trumpet solo floating down from the gallery in the tower. Looking up, you could just make out the figure of the hardy soul playing up there.

I'm not great with exposed heights, so Mrs. planxty was despatched, in the interests of research, to ascend the tower. The fact that the lift was not working that day, obviously, had nothing to do with it!

The good lady returned, slightly breathless from the exertions of the 459 steps, but claimed also to have had her breath taken by the views in all drections from the viewing gallery (see picture).

Definitely, a must see for Hamburg.
