U3 Innenstadt_Betriebliche Einschränkungen


The U3 line is one of the most important connections in the inner city area. High reliability and safety of the infrastructure is indispensable for mobility in our city. That's why we have to tackle the extensive work on the historic and much-used line in good time. Unfortunately, this cannot be done without a longer closure.

Service on the U3 will therefore be interrupted between Hauptbahnhof (South) and Baumwall until March 27, 2022. The stops Mönckebergstraße, Rathaus and Rödingsmarkt will not be served during this time.

The U3 will then resume service along the entire route. Only the Mönckebergstraße stop will remain closed for at least eight weeks. The actual duration required will be decided during the course of construction. (Reason: New technical room to be built and put into operation, without which the stop cannot be approached).


Many good alternatives

During the service interruption of the U3 between Hauptbahnhof (South) and Baumwall until March 2022, there are numerous alternatives to get to and through downtown Hamburg:

  • Jungfernstieg subway and S-Bahn stops (U1 and U2/U4 - as well as S1, S2 and S3), Hauptbahnhof (all subway and S-Bahn lines), Steinstraße (U1), Meßberg (U1), Stadthausbrücke (S1, S2 and S3).
  • Stable bus service is guaranteed with numerous lines running at the previous high frequency. Please note that from March 2021 to September 2021, the majority of bus lines that otherwise run through Mönckebergstraße will be relocated to Steinstraße, which is directly next door.
  • Recommended travel between U/S Landungsbrücken and Hauptbahnhof: S-Bahn and bus line 2, which runs with articulated buses every 10 minutes between Altona via Landungsbrücken, Speicherstadt, Deichtorplatz, Hauptbahnhof and Berliner Tor.
  • Recommended routes between U St. Pauli and the city center: bus lines 16, 17 and 112.
