Hamburg Dammtor is a railway station for long distance, regional and suburban trains on the Hamburg-Altona link line, located in Central Hamburg, Germany. In front is a bus station of the same name for public transport.

The railway station is one of four long distance train stations in Hamburg. The other stations are Hamburg Hauptbahnhof, Hamburg-Altona and Hamburg-Harburg. Despite its size and importance, the station is classified as a Halt point (Haltepunkt) because no trains change directions or start or end here.

History[edit]

The name Dammtor originates from an old city gate located here until the end of the 19th century. The present railway station was opened on 7 July 1903. A previous station, built in 1866, was located around one hundred meters away.

Location[edit]

Hamburg Dammtor is close to the center of Hamburg in the quarter Rotherbaum of the Eimsbüttel borough near the University of Hamburg and the Congress Center Hamburg. As a result, the railway station signs have the addition Messe- und Kongressbahnhof (trade fair and congress station).

Service[edit]

The railway station has 4 elevated tracks, on two island platforms, one servicing the regional and long distance trains, the other platform servicing the S-Bahn.
