The station was opened on 23. September 1983 to connect Harburg and other districts South of the Elbe River − home of more than half a million people − with Hamburg's inner city.[3] Since then, and also thanks to the station, Hammerbrook developed into a commercial district: the "City Süd".

Layout[edit]

The elevated station consists of an island platform with 2 side tracks.[3] The station is fully accessible for handicapped persons since 2013.[4] There are two entrances to the station on Hammerbrookstraße, one near Mittelkanal, the other near Südkanal.
