Getting to and from the airport

Flights departing from London

London has five main international airports, two of which are Gatwick Airport and Stansted Airport. The former is the second largest and busiest airport after Heathrow (by far the busiest in London) while the latter is the third busiest Airport (after Gatwick and Heathrow). Gatwick Airport has North and South terminals, whereas Stansted Airport only has one terminal building.

Gatwick has a single runway that sees more traffic than most airports in London. Stansted also has a single runway, much like Gatwick. Both airports offer comfortable lounges where you can wait while you await flights from London to Hamburg.

Getting to London airport

Located in West Sussex, Gatwick Airport is around 45 km far from Central London. Stansted Airport is located in Sussex about 64km away from the hub of London. The most efficient mode of transport for getting to both airports efficiently is the express trains, Gatwick Express and Stansted Express, respectively. They run at intervals of 15 minutes. Alternatively, you can use the National Express coaches which can be found at Victoria Coach Station.

Whether you decide to use the Express trains, coaches or taxis, it is clear that you are spoilt for choice and you will get to the airport in good time for flights to Hamburg from Gatwick or from Stansted.

Arriving to Hamburg

The 'Gateway to the world' city of Hamburg in Germany is located on the River Elbe. As a port city, it enjoys quite a number of maritime activities. For a fresh experience, dubbed 'On the Elbe' by locals, take a tour and enjoy the exquisite view from the harbour. Enjoy the camaraderie of the people at the Fish Market and get yourself a souvenir of note.

To unleash the inner child in you, explore Miniatur Wunderland and get ready to be blown away by this model railway exhibit with approximately 930 trains on show. For night-life lovers, there are many clubs and bars in Hamburg that you can choose from.

How to get to the city centre

Flights to Hamburg from Stansted or Gatwick will land at Hamburg Airport (Flughafen Hamburg). Hamburg Airport has two terminals: Terminal 1 and 2. It is located approximately 9km north of Central Hamburg. You can get to the city centre from the airport using different transport options.

You can use the S1 S-Bahn metro rail network which will get you to Hauptbahnhof station in Hamburg. This journey is less than 30 minutes away. You could also use the U-Bahn underground rail system. Alternatively, you can use taxis that can be found around the airport outside the terminal buildings. Want to hire a car instead? Car hiring companies can be found at Terminal 2.
