During the Hamburg school holidays the tunnel between Hauptbahnhof (central railway station) and Altona is closed, starting today. The closure is necessary because tracks and points have to be repaired.
Until March 17, the S-Bahn stations Jungfernstieg, Stadthausbrücke, Landungsbrücken, Reeperbahn and Königstraße are closed. The lines S1 and S3 will operate via Dammtor and Sternschanze. Passengers can use a rail replacement bus service.
The U2 in the north of Hamburg has to be closed between Schlump and Hagenbecks Tierpark. The Hochbahn company is improving the stations to make them barrier free. Replacement bus service is available.
