Elbphilharmonie, Landungsbrücken, Eppendorf and Co. – It takes about 45 minutes to experience the whole of the U3, and passenger’s eyes are automatically drawn out of the window as they travel along many of its above-ground sections. The circle line, our oldest underground line, is also very popular with tourists. And no wonder, as the 26 stops that make up the U3 connect a whole array of Hamburg sightseeing spots. Starting in Barmbek, it takes people through Winterhude, Eppendorf, Harvestehude and Eimsbüttel to Sternschanze, then on to St. Pauli, Neustadt, Hamburg-Altstadt, St. Georg, Hohenfelde, and back around to Barmbek-Süd, Barmbek-Nord and Wandsbek.
Just a small selection of the sights to be enjoyed along the U3 include: Mönckebergstraße, Hamburg’s Town Hall, Elbphilharmonie, Speicherstadt, HafenCity, the Michel church, Landungsbrücken, Millerntor, the famous Reeperbahn party mile, Schanzenviertel, Isemarkt, Stadtpark, and much more besides!
