Arriving in Hamburg by Car

As a city, Hamburg has very good Autobahn and intercity transport connections. You can get to Hamburg by taking the German A1, A7, A23, A24 or A25, and there are more routes planned. In the city itself you will find all kinds of federal highway connections, such as the B4, B5 or B73. You will find your way to the centre of town by taking most of them.

There are more than 4000 kilometres of streets and roads that run through the Hanseatic capital. Of course, every now and then you will be confronted with traffic jams. In order to avoid these as best you can, take a look at the current traffic situation in Hamburg. And with over 7000 street names, we recommend that you take a GPS navigation device with you.

Getting Around by Taxi

Hamburg with its many streets, paths and alleys, can sometimes have an intimidating effect on visitors.

Use one of the taxi callboxes dotted around Hamburg to get to your destination quickly and easily.

In the evenings especially it is nice to have the feeling that your driver will bring you to your door, saving you the hassle of searching for the next bus stop or underground station. In Hamburg there is a wide range of taxi companies for you to choose from, of which we have compiled a list here, so that you can prepare yourself before your trip.
