Travel by rail with Deutsche Bahn

Leave traffic jams behind and enjoy your journey right from the start. Deutsche Bahn long-distance trains are fast, affordable and environmentally-friendly. The rail's travel information service not only knows all about train timetables but also when buses leave and how long it takes to walk to the next stop.

Important info concerning the route Hamburg-Lübeck-Copenhagen
Due to increasing construction work carried out in connection with preparations for the construction of the Fehmarnbelt tunnel with rail replacement service in Denmark, IC trains on the Hamburg - Copenhagen line will be diverted via Padborg (previously via Lübeck-Puttgarden-Rodby) for the next few years. There's no stop in Lübeck. As one convenient alternative, we recommend Flixbus.
