How to use this Google Map: 

  • Click the location arrows and zoom controls (+/-) to customize the map.
  • The default view is "Sat" (satellite photo).
  • Click "Map"or "Ter" for a street map.
  • Click "Earth" for an oblique or "bird's eye" view.
  • Move your cursor over the icons (such as "S" for "S-Bahn station) to see names of landmarks or locations.

What you're seeing:

  • The two bodies of water in the upper-right quadrant are the Binnen Alster (Inner Alster) and Aussenalster (Outer Alster) lakes.
  • The River Elbe and port are in the lower half of the map.
  • Most hotels, shops, museums, etc. are in the built-up area between the Alster lakes and the river. (Canals run more or less vertically through the city center, connecting the Binnen Alster and the Elbe.)
  • The Hauptbahnhof, or main railroad station, is above the S-Bahn Stop ("S") on the right side of the central ring road.
  • St. Pauli, Hamburg's famous entertainment district, is left of the city center.
  • The whitish patch toward the right side of the harbor is HafenCity, a huge new development next to the Speicherstadt (the old warehouse district, whose canals are visible just above HafenCity).
