On Sunday, August 16, Hamburg will host a major bicycle race with more than 20.000 participants, the Vattenfall Cyclassics. Many road closures are announced for the city of Hamburg and traffic difficulties are expected for the whole Sunday. This will affect also local buses and taxis. Please allow for extra time in your travel plans. We recommend to use the local railway system ("U-Bahn", "S-Bahn") wherever possible when getting around in Hamburg on Sunday.
