With its location, the Elbe and the Alster, it is, for my taste, Germany's most beautiful city.

Getting around in Hamburg

All NEXT18 venues are located around the Reeperbahn. The best way to get there is by taking the regional train S1/S2/S3 to the station ‘Reeperbahn’ or the subway line U3 to ‘St. Pauli’. The public service transport in Hamburg is operated by HVV (Hamburger Verkehrsverbund). Please note that your NEXT18 ticket does not include the use of HVV, so you’ll need to use the vending machines or the mobile app.

Want to request or pre-order a cab? Here are some taxi companies for you: Hansa Taxi (Phone: +49/40 – 211 211), Taxi Hamburg (+49 40 – 66 66 66) or Das Taxi (+49/ 40 – 22 11 22). You can also download the MyTaxi App which shows all taxis in your area. Call one and pay the driver via the app.
