How to get there
Hamburg Airport is easily accessible and well-signposted from central Hamburg. The A7 Autobahn provides a connection to the airport at exit 23, Schnelsen-Nord.
The S-Bahn route S1 links Hamburg Airport directly with Hamburg’s central station (journey time: 25 minutes).
There are bus stops outside Terminals 1 and 2, and the Lufthansabasis stop is located outside the Holiday parking garages P8-P9 on Weg beim Jäger. From here, you can use the free Holiday shuttle service operating between the terminals and the parking garage (every ten minutes, from 3:45 a.m. through midnight).
A number of bus routes connect the airport with the city center and other local destinations. Information about routes and times of departure is available on the websites of the airport (hamburg-airport.de) and the local mass transit company, Hamburger Verkehrsverbund (hvv.de).
The route from and to Kiel, Neumünster and Bordesholm is served by the bus company Kielius, which provides details of the route, departure times and bus stops on its website (kielius.de).
Taxi services to central Hamburg are readily available outside both terminals. The journey time and fare varies according to the time of day. Official taxis are cream in colour. Pre-booking is available – links to numerous taxi companies can be found on the airport website, including Hansa Taxi (tel: +49-40-21 12 11) and Taxi Hamburg (tel: +40-40/66 66 66).
Parking at Hamburg Airport is available at six car parks, four of which offer short- and long-term rates close to the terminals; two are further away, cheaper, and are aimed at leisure travellers.
