Great for getting around the city

Allows you to take all public transport and especially all ferries (62 but also 72 and 73) which go everywhere on the Elbe, very practical therefore! Also, you must remember to present the card during the purchase of tickets for visits to sites or museums, it gives the right to discounts.

Tremendous value for public travel alone!

The card allows free public transportation within the greater City of Hamburg, as well as discounts at numerous attractions and activities. My wife and I used the card strictly for free transportation and easily received the value of our card over the course of five days! The city is so well laid out that with this card we were able to leave our car parked for the duration and travelled virtually at all hours of the day and night just by showing our card!

You've got to experience Hamburg.

Whoever'd like to discover Hamburg needs to get the Hamburg Card. It's worth it right from the very first day. A downside we noticed is that the staff in charge of answering questions for travelers coming to the city are 'overworked'. For example, their answers to questions about city tours and/or questions about routes for people getting around on their own. In our case, we couldn't get any help until we asked a subway patroller which S-Bahn we should take to the boat greeting area (the Welcome dock). The same goes for the staff at the A & O Hotel. However, overall the stay was very eventful for everyone who came, and we'll be coming back.
