Bueno saber

1. With around 2,500 bridges, Hamburg is the city with the most bridges in Europe and has even more bridges than Venice and Amsterdam combined.

2. The Fish Market held every Sunday is a unique experience and a "must-see" for every trip to Hamburg: In addition to fresh fish, you can also buy fruit, vegetables, sweet delicacies, and souvenirs here. In the Fischauktionshalle you can dance to live music.

3. Hamburg's Reeperbahn is known as the "most sinful mile" in the world. This is where you'll find the Davidwache, which is not only one of the most famous police stations in the world, but the one with the smallest territory in the whole of Europe - a mere 0.92 km2 and about 14,000 inhabitants.


The fastest option: by taxi. The journey takes about 15 minutes. Cost: about €20.

Cheapest option: With the S-Bahn line S1 to Hamburg Hauptbahnhof. The journey takes about 25 minutes. Cost of single trip: €3.20. Think about taking a day card when you are planning to do more than two rides (see "How to use public transport").

To explore the whole of Hamburg conveniently and easily, I recommend a day ticket from the Hamburg Transport Association (HVV). Cost of a day ticket: €7.80, after 09:00 am the day ticket costs €6.40. It's worth getting a day ticket for just two trips or more. For groups of up to 5 people, there are group tickets. Especially good value: the 9 o'clock group ticket (€ 12.00). This ticket is worth it even for just two people. On public holidays and weekends, the 9 o'clock-day tickets are valid even before 9 o'clock. The HVV ticket can be used not only on buses and U-/S-Bahn trains, but is also valid for HADAG ferries.


- Food specialties of the city: Fischbrötchen (bread roll with different types of fish, served hot or cold), Labskaus (a mash of cured beef, pickled beetroot, onions, and potatoes, usually served with a fried egg, pickled gherkin, and matie), Franzbrötchen (typical Hamburg yeast pastries with sugar and cinnamon),
- Drink specialties of the city: Astra beer, shandy (beer and lemonade), Mexikaner (vodka with tomato juice and Tabasco)
- Typical mealtimes: lunch 12-14:00; dinner 18-21:00
- Tipping: about 10%
- Is the tap water safe to drink? Yes


- A cup of coffee at a restaurant: €2-3.00
- A lunch menu at a restaurant: €8-15
- A ride in a taxi (cost/km): base price for each trip = €3.20, price per ilometer 1st – 4th kilometres = €2.35, price per ilometer 5th – 9th ilometer = €2.10, price per ilometer from the 10th ilometer = €1.45


Where to go out:
-St.Pauli with many smaller bars and clubs and the Reeperbahn is probably Hamburg's most famous nightlife district. There is where you'll find numerous bars and clubs such as the Baalsaal and barbarabar, which are listed as highlights by MyCityHighlight.
- Schanzenviertel: Often, the evening starts in one of the bars in the somewhat quieter Schanzenviertel area, which is home to the Goldfischglas, Bar Rossi, Vier Fäuste, and many more. Nearby there is also Übel und Gefährlich, a popular club in a bunker.
But also in Ottensen, Winterhude and the Grindel there are some nice small bars where you can enjoy a drink and have a chat.

Opening times:
From 20:00, but the Hamburg locals hardly ever go out before midnight, especially to the Reeperbahn.


Shopping areas:
- City centre (around Mönckebergstraße) Here you find the big international chains like H&M, Zara and so on, but also some smaller individual shops are starting to pop up in this area. On rainy days the Levantehaus, the Europapassage or the Hanse-Viertel could be a good alternative for indoor shopping.
- Karolinenviertel (Marktstraße): in the hip Karolinienviertel, you'll find many smaller shops (such as the Petit Garage), second-hand shops, and lovely shops to browse (such as Lockengelöt or Familie von Quast, Hanseplatte)
- Schanzenviertel: Schanzenviertel is home to numerous small boutiques and little, individual shops, including the Vintage Store PICKnWEIGHT, and Kauf dich Glücklich

Opening times:
usually from Mon.-Sat. (10 - 20:00), closed on Sunday.


ALDI, LIDL, REWE, Netto, Penny


- All glass bottles are prohibited on the Reeperbahn
- Alcohol is not permitted on public transport
- People often say the Hamburg locals are very cold...Approach people openly and let them convince you otherwise.
