The city of Hamburg has rather strict laws when it comes to taxi services, ensuring that passengers only deal with professional companies. You can recognise taxis by their ivory colour and a taxi sign on the roof of the car.
Finding a taxi
Official taxi stands are located at Hamburg Airport, all train stations and at popular shopping, business and tourist locations around the city. It’s also possible to hail a taxi on the street: if the sign is lit up, the car is available. You can order a taxi by calling one of the taxi dispatch centres, book online on BetterTaxi, or download the myTaxi app.

Hamburg taxis operate with fixed, metered fares, making it easy to calculate what you’ll have to pay for your ride. Should you need a larger vehicle that fits more than four passengers, you can opt for a so-called “Großraumtaxe” for an additional €6. Tipping the driver is appreciated, simply round up the total sum (i.e. €9,20 to €10). All taxi drivers should accept payment with cash and by debit- or credit card.
