Hamburg is easy to reach by plane, train and car.
Hamburg’s airport “Fuhlsbüttel” (HAM) is connected to the city center by trains leaving every 10 minutes between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. The journey to Hamburg main station takes 25 minutes. From there you can change to a train that takes you to the University of Hamburg (journey time: 5 minutes), or you can go directly to your hotel. Check out flights to Hamburg here.
‘Hamburg Hauptbahnhof’ is the city’s main station. Many trains also stop at ‘Hamburg Dammtor’ that is close to the University of Hamburg. You can find your best train connection to Hamburg here.
If you are traveling with ‘Deutsche Bahn’ (German Railways), you can use our special congress offer: Starting from any town in Germany, you can travel to Hamburg and back for only € 99. For details see this PDF.
There is also a new train connection from Cologne to Hamburg, called HKX. This might be a cheaper alternative for your journey.
Hamburg is also accessible by car via the expressways A1 (Bremen-Lübeck), A7 (North-South bypass), A23 (Hamburg-Nordfriesland) and A24 (Hamburg-Berlin). During the rush hour, the inner city streets are relatively congested, so keep in mind that traveling might take longer than expected. The dynamic parking guidance system in the city center can help you find a parking space. However, parking space close to the university is limited. There is a public car park underneath the hotel ‘Grand Elysee’ (Rothenbaumchaussee 10) directly opposite the main building of the university.
