Hamburg Card

Hamburg, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Hamburg is truly beautiful and perfect for a mini city break. The train service is excellent and not too hard too use. ALTHOUGH the Hamburg card isnt really that good value for money, firstly as the fares for the trains arnt that expensive and also i saw NO-ONE over the 4 days ever buy a ticket, and saw no ticket collectors working on the trains, and also unlike London there were no ticket gates etc. In hindside we could have probably travelled around the whole time, like the local Germans clearly do without playing a penny!
We stayed at Sofitel and it was truly beautiful!
Food and places to eat were nice., although the locals werent overly polite. Id def. recommend the boat trips and some time at the Harbour. The roofless bus, although good for getting around, theres not really many ''sights'' in Hamburg that needed pointing out

Note from Viator
Thank you for your feedback! One of our travelers has written to us to comment on the transportation system in Germany, with the following helpful information:

In Germany, locals buy weekly, monthly, or even annual riding passes. While there are no ticket gates like in London, plain clothes police make their rounds on all public transport. Being caught without a ticket is an automatic 40 Euro fine payable to the officer.

We hope this information helps you, and future travelers during your stay in Hamburg!
