Nice way to travel to the Hannover Messe via a transit stop in "Die Hansestadt Hamburg"

Public Transport

Hamburg has a great local transportation network. There's S- and U-Bahn trains you can easily get everywhere with. S-Bahns are divided into 1st and 2nd class. Don't even think about getting a 1st class ticket - the 1st class looks about the same as the 2nd class!

If there is more of you - make sure to buy a day ticket for groups (up to 5 people!). It costs 7.40 EURO and that's really cheap isn't it?

U-Bahn - the only way to travel

Hamburg is a large, sprawling city. But the excellent network of commuter rail lines they call the U-Bahn and S-Bahn provide an easy, cheap and convenient way to get around. Ticketing is so easy for tourists. Buy a 5 person 3 day pass at one of the automatic machines and you're on your way! The trains are clean, but oh what a shame many of the windows have been scratched by vandals.

I flew in from Manchester...

I flew in from Manchester (united Kingdom)

A bus takes you to the Hauptbanhof in app 25/30 mins from where you can catch Trains/U and S Bahn or Buses to just about anywhere
Very simple. The best public transport I have encountered anywhere - BAR NONE and by a long way.

The day or 3 day pass tickets are valid on : U and S bahn, buses and some ferries on the alster. Frequency and reliability of services excellent, ease of use excellent, it runs from early to late again I could go on and on if politicians from your city/town/country want to see how it SHOULD be done (sorry but public transport in UK - where I live - is a pathetic joke) they should go to Hamburg and bring back the lessons learned.

Oh and it's very good value for money I believe the current (18 Jul 2002) price for a 3 day pass is just Euros 12,80

Hamburg has an airport,...

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!

Take the bus from the airport...

Take the bus from the airport into the Centrum. The driver wouldn't change a hundred-mark note, but he was willing to change a 50.
U-Bahn, S-Bahn, the subway. Fast, easy, inexpensive. No need for a car.

U-Bahn Hamburg

it called Subway "U-Bahn", but if you see, a lot of time the trains are running over the edge, like here in the harbor area! You have a very nice view out of it. Dayticket is 4,65 EUR!

The easiest way of getting aroung the city is taking suburban railways (S Bahn) and undeground (U Bahn). The same tickets are valid for busses, S and U bahn. Single ticket costs 2 euro.

Getting Around

The best way to get around in Hamburg is by suburban train (S-Bahn) or underground train (U-Bahn). Traffic on roads is hell during rush hour.
