    by S.Cunis Updated Nov 12, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The easiest way to get to Wedel from Hamburg is by S--Bahn line S 1. Wedel is the last stop. It takes about 40 minutes from Hamburg Hauptbahnhof, 30 minutes from Altona and 15 from Blankenese.

    But you also can take the bus.
    The bus has several stops in Wedel. To visit the Welcome Point, go to Schulauer Fährhaus.

    ...or you can take a boat. When you have time, and the weather is fine, this is certainly the most relaxing way to get there.
