Germany’s second-largest city is an ideal destination for a short break. What’s more, there are plenty of cheap flights to Hamburg from Manchester Airport (MAN), with an average journey time of just one hour and 35 minutes.
Forget everything you think you know about German city breaks. Ban beer-swilling festivals from your mind and erase images of lederhosen-wearing blokes from memory (it’s for the best), because the port city of Hamburg has a completely unique set of tricks up its sleeve.
You can book direct flights from Manchester to Hamburg Airport (HAM) with low-cost carrier easyJet and German budget airline Eurowings.
Hop on the rails, jump in a cab or hire your own wheels and be in Hamburg in no time after touching down.
Efficient and good value, the S-Bahn rail network is perfect for those on a budget. For 3.20 euros, you can be in central Hamburg in just 25 minutes, though you’ll have to finish the trip on foot or use a taxi to complete the journey to your hotel from the central Hauptbahnhof railway station.
The convenience of an airport-to-hotel taxi journey is reasonably priced, at around 25 euros for the 20-30 minute ride.
You probably don’t need to rent a vehicle if you plan on touring only the central sights of the city, though for seeing more of northern Germany and getting around with ease, car hire in Hamburg is a must.
You’ll also need a great place to stay. Compare amazing deals and low prices on our hotels in Hamburg page.
