Hamburg has a great public transportation system with subway (“U-Bahn”) and metro (“S-Bahn”). A “9 am Day Pass” (“9-Uhr-Tageskarte”) costs 6.50 EUR and is valid all day at the weekend. It is often cheaper than a regular return-ticket. For 2 people it is cheaper to buy a group ticket (12.20 EUR). All U-Bahn and S-Bahn trains stop at the Main Station (“Hauptbahnhof”).
If you consider coming by bicycle, the “StadtRAD Hamburg” bike system has docking 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.

At the Check-In you register for the whole weekend and meet new friends while we have a glass of sparkling wine together.

Breakfast on June 23rd
The night was short. But anyway – join us for 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

After the breakfast, you can take the S1 from Barmbek to Hamburg Airport or the S1 from Barmbek to Hamburg Central.
City Hall tour
Hamburg City Hall is the seat of local government of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. It is the seat of the government of Hamburg and as such, the seat of one of Germany’s 16 state parliaments. Constructed from 1886 to 1897, the city hall still houses its original governmental functions with the office of the First Mayor of Hamburg and the meeting rooms for Hamburg’s parliament and senate.
All interested participants and friends are invited for a reception on Sunday afternoon.
There is much to see and do in Hamburg. If you have some time left, here are some ideas and tips.
Elbphilharmonie: The new concert hall is just two years old and already a landmark. For the Plaza, you can get a free ticket for free on site (or in advance 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 harbour.
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 and Lange ReiheThe heart of Hamburg’s gay and lesbian community is St. Georg and in particular Lange Reihe. Enjoy the many cozy cafés, trendy bars, and fantastic restaurants taking a rest from your shopping and sampling the local eye-candy. Our tip: a slice of homemade cake at the cult Café Gnosa.
Miniatur Wunderland: The attachment located at < strong> Hamburger Speicherstadt is not only 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 so you do not have to wait in line. The Speicherstadt Incidentally, is the world’s largest continuous warehouse complex and, since 2015, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.Sign up now!
