      Hi Petur,

      yes, there are some nearby. You can view all StadtRAD locations in a map on their official website. The closest one is station no. 2396, Röntgenstraße/Philips. You could also take the S1 train for one station to Ohlsdorf using a Short Journey Ticket to StadtRAD station no. 2397, Alsterdorfer Straße/Fuhlsbüttler Straße.

    Hi! As a couple, do both people need to register or can one user release two bikes at the same time?

      Hi Nina,

      good question! One registered user can rent up to two bikes, so when you are traveling as a couple only one registration is needed. 🙂
