Hamburg - A city that welcomes visitors with its magical atmosphere

- Train - Trains, trams, subways and buses are becoming more and more accessible. Some stations have corrugated platform boundaries to facilitate the movement of visually impaired passengers.
- Ride Sharing - A cheap and partially green way to get around Germany with your own car is ridesharing. It's not Uber-style ridesharing that's common elsewhere. Instead, travel as a passenger in a private car for gas bills.
