Uelzen lies in northern Germany, equidistant to the south east of Hamburg and north east of Hannover. Although not directly connected to the motorway network, Uelzen is at a crossroads of some of Germany's main trunk roads and as such is very easy to reach by car or coach. The train station lies on a direct route to Hannover and Hamburg (each can be reached within 45 minutes). For these major northern stations, the whole country is easily accessible. Hamburg airport also provides excellent international connections.
