Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Hamburg U-Bahn is a rapid transit system serving the cities of Hamburg, Norderstedt and Ahrensburg in Germany. Although technically an underground, most of the system's track length is above ground. The network is interconnected with the city's S-Bahn system, which also has underground sections. It is operated by Hamburger Hochbahn within the Hamburger Verkehrsverbund. It was opened in February 1912 and comprises three lines with a length of 101 km in 2006. In 1906 the Senate of Hamburg awarded a contract for the Over and Underground Rail to Siemens & Halske and AEG of Berlin. The first stretch was completed on 7 October 1906. This was followed in 1911 with the founding of the Hamburger Hochbahn Aktiengesellschaft.show more
