    Getting around

    Public Transport

    An efficient network of buses and trams covers the whole city. Night buses operate on some routes. All services are operated by DVB (tel: (0351) 857 1011; www.dvb.de). Buy tickets as single fares, or four-journey or one-day passes. There are machines at tram and bus stops, and on board trams, and tickets can be bought from bus drivers.


    Taxis are a good-value option, but you cannot hail one in the street. Head for one of the many taxi ranks scattered across the city centre, or call for a cab through the taxi hotline (tel: (0351) 211 211). Tipping isn’t necessary.
