Airport Hamburg-Fuhlsbüttel (HAM)

Airport Hamburg-Fuhlsbüttel (IATA: HAM) (ICAO: EDDH) Hamburg has the fifth largest international airport in Germany, so arrival by plane is an obvious choice for those visiting from far away. There are plenty connections within Europe, although only a few intercontinental direct services are offered.

The airport has been thoroughly modernized with new terminals, airport hotel, streamlined infrastructure, and facilities that are by and large adequate, so you won't get lost. Depending on the gate your flight arrives at or leaves from, walking longer distances might be neccessary as on any other airport too.

Hamburg Airport is connected to the city by the S-Bahn S1 commuter train line, which connects to the main station (Hauptbahnhof) and the city center in about 30 minutes. There are trains every 10-20 minutes, and a single fare is €2,70. Beware on the way back from the city centre to the airport: The train splits in two at Ohlsdorf, with only the first three cars going to the airport, and the rest going to the suburb of Poppenbüttel. There are no trains between midnight and 4 AM, but a bus runs along the same route. As there aren't any flights between 11PM and 6AM this may not affect your journey at all. Train timetable S1:

The airport, which is hugely popular with plane-spotters, is surrounded by Schrebergärten (meticulously maintained allotments), park lands, and open green spaces, crisscrossed by bicycle and walking trails. The popularity of this area is not only due to the many viewpoints, but also because Lufthansa Technik (Lufthansa's maintenance service) operates some large hangars on the airport, which means that the site is visited by a variety of rare and interesting aircraft (including VVIP).
[edit] Airport "Hamburg-Lübeck" aka "Lübeck-Blankensee" (IATA: LBC) (ICAO: EDHL)

As with many other destinations, the discount airline Ryan Air does not operate from Hamburg, as their naming scheme might indicate. Instead, it operates from Lübeck-Blankensee airport (not to confuse with Hamburg's suburb Blankenese), which is 65 km from Hamburg via motorway A1. The second airline that offers flights to Lübeck is Wizz Air . Flights go to London Stansted (England), Shannon and Dublin (Ireland), Glasgow Prestwick (Scotland), Stockholm Skavsta (Sweden), Milan Bergamo (Italy), Pisa (Italy), and Gdansk (Poland).

Buses connecting to the flights go from Hamburg's central bus station ("ZOB", adjacent to the main train station). They cost €12 for single way and take about one hour and 10 minutes. The buses depart about two hours and 50 minutes before every Ryanair departure, meet every arrival, and wait for delayed flights. Timetable is available on the bus company VHH's website .
