Hamburg has a great public transportation system with Subway (“U-Bahn”) and Metro (“S-Bahn”). A “9 am Day Pass” costs 6.50 EUR and is valid all day at the weekend. It is often cheaper than a regular return-ticket. For 2 persons it is better to buy a group ticket (12.20 EUR). All U-Bahn and S-Bahn pass the Main Station (“Hauptbahnhof”).
You can also come to our locations by bike. The “StadtRAD Hamburg” bike system has stations all over the city. The first 30 minutes of each ride are free of charge! You simply need to register for 5.00 EUR in advance.
You can also use the car sharing systems DriveNow or Car2Go. They have cars at every corner. But please be aware that our competition pool in Wilhelmsburg is out of their area of operation.

Breakfast on June 23rd
The night was short. But anyway – join our breakfast at the T.R.U.D.E. in Barmbek. These funny letters stand for “Tief runter unter die Elbe”, (“deep down under the Elbe river”) and it is the name of the partial shown tunnel drilling machine that was used for the fourth tunnel under the Elbe river.
Please don’t forget your ticket! You also get a glass of sparkling wine – to celebrate your achievements with your new friends.
When: 23.6.2019, 10.00 am
Where: T.R.U.D.E. Hamburg, Maurienstraße 13-15, 22305 Hamburg, U3/S1 Barmbek
After the breakfast, you can take the S1 from Barmbek to Hamburg Airport or the S1 from Barmbek to Hamburg Central.
Please note: On Sunday due to constructions there is no U3 service between Barmbek and Berliner Tor!
There is much to see and do in Hamburg. If you have some time left, we will give you some ideas and tips.
Elbphilharmonie: The new concert hall is just finished and already a landmark. For the Plaza, you can get a ticket for free on site (at the advance booking a > for 2 EUR). You can get there via the largest curved escalator in the world and have a great view over the HafenCity and the harbor.
Hamburg Harbour / Landungsbrücken / Old Elbtunnel: During a walk along the jetties you can admire some ships. Through the old Elbtunnel you reach the free port side of the Elbe. From there you have a fantastic view of the city and the Elbphilharmonie. By the way, you can take the ferry (line 62) from the jetties to Finkenwerder and back and enjoy the view of the harbor and the Elbe suburbs. The ferry is included in the HVV tariff. The best fish sandwiches can be found at the fish bun king on bridge 6 .
St. Georg und die Lange Reihe: Das Zentrum der schwul-lesbischen Szene liegt in St. Georg und vor allem an der Langen Reihe. Zwischen gemütlichen Cafés, hippen Bars und leckeren Restaurants kann geshoppt und viel gestaunt werden. Tipp: Ein Stück Kuchen im Kult-Café Gnosa.
Miniatur-Wunderland: The attachment located at < strong> Hamburger Speicherstadt strong> is by far not just for kids and nerds. For hours you can admire the different landscapes, cities and scenes. There are not only railways here, but also ships, lovers, bog bodies and even an airport. It is best to buy a ticket online for it You do not have to wait long.
