>>Children's announcements Hamburg subway
Kinderansagen U-Bahn Hamburg
"Kinder sagen, wo es langgeht" ("Children tell
you where we're going"). Together with a German TV station, Hamburg's subway
operator recorded new announcements for all the stations many tourists go to. As
opposed to the normal announcements, the new announcements were spoken by
children. The announcements were played a few weeks prior to the World Cup 2006,
and once the normal announcements were back, people petitioned for the
children's announcements to return. They were still played in 2009.
The structure of the announcements is identical to the normal announcements of Hamburg's subway system, as decribed here.
The recordings on this site are meant to demonstrate how each individual transit company uses their announcements. All recordings were made by me in regularly scheduled services. Commercial use and publication of the recordinds is not permitted.
