Underground line 3: a must for your stay in Hamburg!

Hop on the yellow U3 - for the people of Hamburg it is the "most beautiful underground line in the world". The U3 is a special underground line in Hamburg. Only 9 out of 25 stations are underground, the other stops offer very special panoramic views.

In 1912, the U3 was Hamburg's very first underground line and is now considered the favourite line of many tourists. Even long-established Hamburg residents enjoy the view of Hamburg harbour from the Landungsbrücken underground station.
