Hamburg’s only airport "Hamburg-Fuhlsbüttel" is located North of the city centre. A taxi ride from the airport to our school takes approx. 30 minutes.
Alternatively, you can take the S1 train from the airport in the direction of “Wedel” or "Blankenese". You will need to get off at “Klein Flottbek” station. From there you can take an attractive 5–10min walk along Hesten and Max Emden Weg, between the Botanical Gardens and the Polo Club (note that there is no access to the school throughthe Botanical Gardens).
The International School of Hamburg offers a voluntary transportation service to its students: Two school buses, run by the local Hamburg Transportation Department (HVV) go around the outer Alster region of Hamburg. They stop at regular bus stops but are only available to our students. Below, you will find a map with the approximate area covered by our two busses.
For information on the cost of the bus and/or the route, please contact Admissions as it differs every year based on how many students want to use the service.
ISH features a drop-off zone in front of the main entrance, where cars are not allowed to park or even wait. For those who would like to park longer, there is a school parking lot with a number of designated spaces for parents. In addition, there is an overflow car park 200 meters away. In case you visit us by car, we recommend avoiding the usual rush hours in the morning (8:10-8:30) and afternoon (14:50-15:15).
The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany, after the capital of Berlin. The city is, indeed, famous for its tolerance and open-mindedness - symbolized by the gate in its crest, which has earned it the title "Tor zur Welt" (gateway to the world) and was voted one of the world's most liveable cities.
