Connections within the city
Within the city, traffic is well distributed. The public transport companies in Hamburg connect the entire city. Nevertheless, public transportation plays rather small role in the Hamburg streets, with only 18% of trips being made on public busses and trams. In comparison, 42% of residents choose to commute by car.
On-the-go by bike or by food
Hamburgers also enjoy traveling by foot. There are numerous trails along the water or through the city. However, if you prefer to commute by bike, you can use the approx. 1,700 kilometers of cycling trails in Hamburg, which are a great excuse to explore the city. For this purpose, several BikeSharing services (e.g., http://stadtrad.hamburg.de) offer uncomplicated rental bikes at fair prices.
