The hotel Das kleine Grindel is situated in the centre of Hamburg with excellent transport connections. We recommend that you use public transport to get here. The nearest underground station is Hallerstraße on the blue U1 line; take the exit “Turmweg”. From there it is 500 m to the hotel. We are also easy to reach by bus – the numbers 15 and 114 stop at Hallerstraße and the numbers 4 and 5 at Grindelhof. The train station Hamburg-Dammtor is 1.2 km away and is served by long-distance, regional trains and the suburban lines S11, S21 and S31. From Hamburg Airport it takes 21 minutes to Hallerstraße with the S1 and U1 (change in Ohlsdorf) and by taxi it takes about 30 minutes, depending on the traffic (approx. €35). From the cruise ship terminal in the HafenCity it takes 17 minutes to Hallerstraße (U4 from Überseequartier, change at Jungfernstieg).

Das kleine Grindel is also easy to reach by car. The hotel unfortunately does not have parking spaces of its own and is located in a residents parking area. From 9am to 8pm, you need to buy a parking ticket (there is a parking limit of 3 hours).

Northeast of Hallerstraße and Rothenbauchausse, you can buy day tickets for 10€ (e. g. in Hansastrasse between Rothenbaumchaussee and Mittelweg, approx. 700m). In addition, directly in front of the MARKK museum at Rothenbaumchaussee you can buy day tickets. Please be aware of the no-parking zone during farmer’s market! The areas with day tickets are marked in the map.

A car park can be found at Pöseldorf Center (Mittelweg 130, access via Brodersweg, approx. 950m; 2 €/h, max 20€/day).
