So Much on offer in the Metropolis on Water

Hamburg is a vibrant metropolis on water and the city boasts a wide variety of activities for its visitors. This also includes deaf and hearing impaired people: on this website you will find the information you need to plan your trip.

Report by a deaf Hamburg expert

In this text, Ralph Raule, our deaf Hamburg expert, introduces you to the Hanseatic city in several short videos and texts in German Sign Language (DGS), including the most popular sights and whatever else makes a visit to the city enjoyable.

Guided tours of districs and Museums in sign language

Hamburg also has a lot to offer for deaf and hearing impaired people in the realm of culture and entertainment.  For example, a comprehensive range of guided tours in DGS – both when looking around districts as well as visiting cultural attractions such as museums. The Ernst Deutsch Theatre even offers regular performances in DGS.

Display Panels on buses, subways and S-Bahn trains

You can find out in detail how to get in and around Hamburg on foot or by public transport using the Mobility menu item. The metropolis has a dense bus, rapid transit (S-Bahn), metro and underground (U-Bahn) train and ferry line network with electronic display panels in many places. 
You can find out, for example, where the nearest bus stop is, when the next U-Bahn arrives, or if you are on the right ferry! Passenger screens in the U-Bahn inform you about timetable changes or operational disturbances.
As you can see in the report mentioned above, it is possible, for example, to take a ferry from Landungsbrücken along the Elbe downstream to Finkenwerder with a regular ticket from the Hamburg Transport Association. It's that simple to reach the fish market, Submarine U-434 the submarine museum and the Övelgönner Harbour Museum quickly and easily.

We are looking forward to your visit to Hamburg!
