Transport connections

Hamburg's long tradition of national and international trading has assured an excellent interconnected transport framework. Furthermore, the city is profiting more and more from its favourable geographical location. Since the opening of markets in central and eastern Europe and the extension of the European Union in 2004, Hamburg has become a very important hub for trading and transportation in northern Europe. This expansion has also reached the booming areas of Asia and the Baltic region.

Every year more than 12 million passengers arrive and depart from Hamburg Airport. More than 115 destinations worldwide can be reached directly by using any of the 60 airlines available.

Every day more than two million people use public transportation in the metropolitan area of Hamburg. Hamburger Verkehrsverbund (HVV) connects the city area and its surroundings with almost 700 bus and train lines.

Three main stations within the inner city circle (Central Station, Dammtor and Altona) offer main line services with Deutsche Bahn. Destinations all over Germany and Europe can be comfortably reached by train.
