Business as usual inside Wunderland on July 7-8, 2017 despite G20 summit

The Wunderland will be open as usual on Friday, July 07th from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday, July 08th from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The Wunderland exhibition will be open as usual on Friday, July 07th from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday, July 08th from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and we don't expect any obstructions. 

However, the streets in the city center as well as the closer neighborhood will be closed for car traffic at times because of demonstrations or convoys for the summit participants.

Recommendation: We suggest taking the subway and underground lines listed below to get to us. If you plan on coming by car we recommend parking outside the city center and switching to public transportation for the rest of your journey.

 

  • Underground line U3 to station "Baumwall" (from Hamburg Hauptbahnhof in the direction of Schlump/Barmbek); ca. 8 minute walk 
  • Underground line U1 to station "Meßberg" (from Hamburg Hauptbahnhof in the direction of Norderstedt); ca. 10 minute walk
  • Underground line U4 to station "Überseequartier" (from Hamburg Hauptbahnhof in the direction of Hafencity Universität); ca. 12 minute walk
  • Subway lines S1 or S3 to station "Stadthausbrücke" (from Hamburg Hauptbahnhof in the direction of Blankenese/Wedel or Pinneberg); ca. 10 minute walk

 

Public transportation ("HVV") information: Subway and underground lines will offer regular service, some of them will run even more often and longer than usual. The same is true for the HADAG passenger ferries on the Elbe River, except for line 72 (Elbphilharmonie <-> Landungsbrücken) which will not operate on Friday.

Buses won't run anywhere in the city center. Instead, shuttle buses will call at the most important bus stops. Bus line 6 from Hauptbahnhof to HafenCity won't stop at Wunderland on Friday and Saturday, and bus line 111 from Altona to HafenCity won't operate on Friday either. 

All information about public transportation services ("HVV") can be found here: http://www.hvv.de/ueber-uns/aktuelles/2017_06_23_G20_Verkehrskonzept_im_HVV.php

Recently, fake announcements have appeared at some stations stating that public transportation services are free of charge on summit days. Please note that this is not true.

Deutsche Bahn (long distance rail traffic): All long distance trains of the Deutsche Bahn (ICE, IC, EC trains) will start and end at Hamburg Hauptbahnhof (main station) when coming from the south and east. Trains from the north, e.g. from Flensburg, Kiel, Pinneberg and Neumünster, will start and end at the station Hamburg Altona. There will be no long distance trains between Altona and Hauptbahnhof on Friday and Saturday, only subway lines. More information can be found on the website of the Deutsche Bahn: http://www.deutschebahn.com/presse/hamburg/de/aktuell/Betriebslage_G20.htm 

If you still choose to come by car we suggest that you enter Hamburg from the south on the A255/B4, exit at "Freihafen/HafenCity" and drive either through the HafenCity or east via Deichtorplatz and Sandtorhöft. If coming from the north or west, street closures must be expected.
