Filled with the finest that Hamburg has to offer, a Hamburg CARD or Hamburg Card plus Region are the practical and inexpensive way to explore the city and its surrounding area.

With these leisure-time passes you are entitled to unlimited travel by bus and train throughout the HVV service area. In addition, you enjoy discounts at or on over 130 tourist- or other interesting offers. These include:

  • City-sightseeing bus tours and boat trips around the port or on the River Alster
  • Places of interest and museums
  • Musicals and theatre
  • Restaurants and souvenirs

The Hamburg CARD leisure-time pass is valid for travel within the HVV Großbereich (Greater Hamburg Area). This comprises the city state of Hamburg and certain surrounding municipalities and towns.
