Is there a way to read hard drive from Apple TimeCapsule on my Mac?

The Time Capsule is merely an Airport Extreme with built-in hard drive. The Airport {express|extreme}-devices support disks support all hard drives which are formatted using a compatible file system (FAT16/32, HFS+).

Mac OS X supports all these file systems, too. You will be able to connect your hard drive to your mac eg. using USB - maybe you will need to get some S-ATA to USB-Adaptor for connecting it.
