Arriving by Car
Mobility has always played a major role in the region, and Hamburg is embedded in a close-knit network of state roads. Germany's longest motorway, the A7, runs from north to south, while the A1 runs from the Baltic Sea to the Saarland region. Hamburg is connected to Berlin via the A24 and to Schleswig-Holstein via the A23. In the coming years, the motorway network in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region will be further expanded to the tune of 2.5 billion euros.

Hamburg is also easily accessible for all those arriving by train from other parts of Germany or Europe, and Berlin is less than two hours away by rail.
