Hamburg Hauptbahnhof is the central station of the seaport Hamburg in the north of Germany. Hamburg Hbf lies in the middle of the city center. All major attractions are at walking distance. The station was inaugurated in 1906. It's Germany's busiest station and after Paris Gare du Nord the busiest station of Europe.
If you stay in Hamburg and are looking for a taxi, you can go to one of the two taxi stands near the station. They can be found near the exits on the Kirchenallee and the GlockenGliesserwall. Taxi vouchers can be bought from the Deutsche Bahn (DB) information desk. Hamburg's S-bahn leaves from platforms 1-4. The subway (U-bahn) has two stations nearby: Hauptbahnhof Süd (lines U1 and U3) and Hauptbahnhof Nord (lines U2 and U4). You can also rent a car at Hamburg Hbf. Avis car rental can be found in the foyer at platform 12. Europcar and Sixt are located next to the DB Reisezentrum. If you want to explore the city by bike, Hamburg Stadtrad is the ideal solution. It's a self-service bike system, where you can rent and park bikes at several locations.
You can go to the DB information desk for information about the city, taxi vouchers, hotel reservations, assistance with lost luggage and all information about traveling by train. Luggage trolleys can be found throughout the station. You can use station lockers if you want to temporarily store your luggage. The station also has Wi-Fi.
As is to be expected from a large station, Hamburg has a large selection of eating and drinking facilities. There are several fast-food restaurants for a quick bite and there's a real German bar. Most restaurants can be found in the Food Court of the Wandelhalle or in the Südsteg.
In the small shopping mall, the Wandelhalle, you can find all kinds of shops. There are bookstores, gift shops, a flower shop, a drugstore, a perfumery, boutiques, and a bank.
Frequently asked questions
Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest?
Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.
What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
