I’m trying to get from Germany to Poland and tried booking online with and checked the Eurail site and it says you need a paper ticket.

I’m currently in Hamburg. Do I need to find a DB ticket office somewhere in Hamburg? If anyone knows where that might be, that would be great.

DB Reisecenter=ticket offices are in ANY major station where trains stop-however in big city HH=Hansestadt Hamburg there is also S-bahn (included on pass, as its DB)-these are just minor bahnhoefe=stations with only machines for local tickets. Main in DE is always HBF=HauptBahnhof, in HH there is also Altona, Harburg, Dammtor and several minor ones spread out in suburbia.

In general your HTL will also be very able to tell exactly where nearest Bahnhof is and how to get there. In fact just east of HBF (not the best area of town) are at least 100 different HTLs  and hoStels too.

This comes from HD now.
