The '''HVV''' (Hamburger Verkehrsverbund) is an association of transport services running the public transport in Hamburg. If you want to use a Bus, a S-Bahn (S1, S11, S2, S21, S3, S31) or an U-Bahn (U1, U2, U3, U4) you will need to purchase a HVV-ticket (see below). The Regionalbahnen (Rx and Ax) can, within the greater city limits, also be used with a HVV-ticket. The harbor ferries (Fähre), except the "Hafenrundfahrten", are also included.

'''Home printed tickets valid for 7 days''' for central Hamburg are priced at 16€ upwards, no account card or photo is needed, just bring a passport containing a photo of yourself: [http://www.hvv.de/fahrkarten/wochen-monatskarten/wochenkarte/ info] (German, there doesn't seem to be an equivalent page in English), buy them [https://shop.hvv.de/product/3/show/0/0/0/0 here].<br/>
 
The 1 zone ticket is not suitable as that zone has to be outside of the "Großbereich Hamburg": [http://www.hvv.de/pdf/fahrplaene/tarifplaene/Tarifplan_USAR.pdf zone map]. Insert the zones you want to travel through (eg. "000" for central Hamburg, containing the Dammtor and main train station), the start date and your name. Payment is possible via credit card (master card, visa or american express) or direct debit (you have to create an account, only German bank accounts supported).
