Quality and value exceptional. Will continue to use your service wherever we travel.
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!
HAMBURG CARD IS WONDERFULL ONCE YOU CAN JOIN HAMBURG CITY WITH SAFE AND EASY TRANSPORTATION. IT IS A VERY IMPORTANT TO TAKE THE HAMBURG CARD. I RECOMMEND.

great, useful, I saved money in museums, transportation, canal cruise, I loved it
Good value, good price. The Hamburg Card gave me a discount on most of the attractions, I visited.
Worth it if you use a lot of public transportation, but not much of a value for admission to museums and other attractions. Also a big pain to have to pick it up at Tourist Information office at Central RR station. Why couldn't the card be waiting for us at our Hotel?
Actually pretty worthless. Not the card's fault. It is just that there apparently is no payment required for riding public transportation in Hamburg. There are machines to buy tickets but no one asks for tickets, you just get on and ride. Saw very few tickets being purchased.
Nothing wrong with the Hamburg Card except the information provided on your website is out of date. We arrived in Hamburg at 4 pm at the cruise terminal and proceeded to the tourist office at 6pm to pick up our card.Website says card is valid for 1 day and from 6pm the day before.This is not correct.Now from 6am to 6am the following day!
Although a lot can be done walking, the card enables you to visit some more distant locations. Worth the money.
