Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
The second largest city in Germany, the city of Hamburg is home to over 1.7 million people although more than 5 million people live within its metropolitan region. Situated on the River Elbe, it’s not just one of the most beautiful cities in Germany, but it’s often referred to as ‘The Gateway to the World’, particularly as it’s the largest port in the country.
Of course, the harbour is the real heart of the city, although Hamburg has also become important as a media centre with over half of Germany’s newspapers and magazines originating here.
Furthermore, it’s home to Airbus, making it one of the major locations of the world’s aerospace industry, so it’s no wonder that it’s one of the country’s wealthiest cities.
From the moment you land on the runway at Hamburg-Fuhlsbüttel, the fifth-largest international airport in Germany, you’ll find yourself surrounded by German efficiency. Although the airport is connected to the city by the S-Bahn S1 communter line, our bus shuttles and airport transfers are the perfect way to get yourself and your friends, family or colleagues from the airport to the city in comfort and in style.
We also operate our airport shuttle service from the smaller airports of Hamburg- Lübeck, Hamburg-Finkenwerder and Hamburg-Uetersen, should you be flying into one of these.
Visit Hamburg and you’ll find it’s comprised of several vibrant neighbourhoods, including a lively waterside, the infamous Reeperbahn red-light district and the bustling Fish Market. Wherever you go, you’ll see Hamburg’s maritime and mercantile history. From the architecture to the food, there’s always a hint of the sea.
While the city can’t boast much in the way of architecture – only the town hall, which houses the citizen’s parliament and the senate, and the palace in Bergedorf are of note – you’ll see a number of impressive mansions that were once the homes of merchants and sea captains. Unfortunately, many areas were destroyed during World War II, although the famous St. Michaelis church, which was originally built in 1641, is still standing after being rebuilt three times.
A visit to the Fish Market is a must. Despite its name, it’s been trading more than just fish since it first started in 1703. You’ll find everything here from live ducks to old porcelain, plus masses of fish in the 100-year old Fish Auction hall. Be sure to stop off for brunch in the Auction Hall and enjoy your food to the accompaniment of live music with bands playing anything from jazz to country.
Train enthusiasts will love Miniatur Wunderland, the largest model railway system in the world. There’s 930 trains, almost 14,450 railway wagons, almost quarter of a million trees, hundreds of thousands of figures, 13,000 metres of track and over 3,500 buildings and bridges so, as you can imagine, it certainly is a wonderland.
If you plan to visit the Miniature Wonderland as a group, Rent A Bus Hamburg offers special deals on all our bus and coach hire in Hamburg.
Perhaps the most famous place in Hamburg is the Reeperbahn. Also known as ‘Kiez’, it’s the place where everyone goes to be entertained. There are bars, nightclubs and student clubs mixed in with the traditional table dance bars, and the area attracts thousands of people of all ages for fun and entertainment once the sun goes down.
If you’re planning a group visit to the Reeperbahn, don’t forget to book your transport back to your accommodation. Rent A Bus offer some of the best prices for bus and coach hire in Hamburg, and will ensure that you get home safely after a wild night out.
If culture is more your style, we can transport you to and from the Elbphiharmonie in Hafen City for an evening of classical or 21st century music.
