The Hamburg Towers games take place in the Wilhelmsburger edel-optics arena. After the edel-optics.de arena initially served as a flower exhibition hall for the 2013 international garden show, it was subsequently converted into a modern 3-field sports hall with 3,000 seats. In addition to the Hamburg Towers, the BG Baskets Hamburg as well as youth and youth teams play their home games here. In addition, a consistent concept from open sports social work to popular and competitive sports is implemented here.
How to find us...
Arriving by train
We recommend arriving by train. The Wilhelmsburg S-Bahn station is located directly at the main entrance of the Inselpark and the hall can therefore be reached in a few minutes from the S-Bahn station. With the integrated HVV combi ticket, the Hamburg Towers admission ticket is valid as a ticket for the journey to the edel-optics.de arena and back on all HVV means of transport.
Arriving from the north:
The S 3 and S 31 S-Bahn trains depart from Hamburg Central Station every five minutes during rush hour heading south with the destinations “Harburg”, “Neugraben” or “Stade”. The “Wilhelmsburg” S-Bahn station is only three stops away from the main train station. The journey time is only 8 minutes.
Arriving from the south:
From the Hamburg – Harburg long-distance train station, the S 3 and S 31 S-Bahn trains go north every five minutes with the destinations “Pinneberg” or “Altona”. The journey time is only 4 minutes to the “Wilhelmsburg” S-Bahn station.
The “Wilhelmsburg” S-Bahn station is equipped with escalators and an elevator and is therefore barrier-free. From here it is only a 350 m walk to the hall. The HVV Kombiticket gives all Towers fans free travel to home games with one ticket.

Arrival by bike
The edel-optics.de arena is also easily accessible by bike: the park is located directly on the Hamburg – Bremen long-distance cycle route, on the section between Hamburg and Harburg.
Since spring 2012, a well-developed cycle path has led from the Old Elbe Tunnel to the Landungsbrücken (St. Pauli) to Wilhelmsburg. The route to the edel-optics.de arena is approx. 6.8 km long and initially leads through the Steinwerder district. When you arrive in Wilhelmsburg, you go along the Reiherstieg main dike and the “Bei der Wollkämmerei” street to Georg-Wilhelm-Strasse, which leads directly to the entrance area of the Inselpark.
Arriving by car
The edel-optics.de arena can be easily reached from the A1 and A7 autobahns without having to cross the Hamburg city center.
Travelers on the A 7 from the north take the “Heimfeld” exit and drive over Stader Strasse, Buxtehuder Strasse and the B 4/75.
Travelers on the A1 motorway from the east (Lübeck / Berlin) follow the A1 in the direction of Hanover / Bremen to the Hamburg-Süd motorway junction. From there, follow the signs “B 4/75” and “HH-Georgswerder” and drive south on the B 75 to the “Wilhelmsburg” exit.
Travelers coming from the south (A 7 and A 39 motorways) and southwest (A 1 motorway) follow the “Hamburg” sign from the Maschener Kreuz to the “HH-Harburg / Neuland” exit. From there, continue west on Neuländer Straße until you reach the A 253 / B 4/75 “Wilhelmsburger Reichsstraße” motorway in the direction of “HH-Centrum” / “Wilhelmsburg”. The next exit to the north from the B4 / 75 is “HH-Wilhelmsburg”.
