Train: Price increases and new connections as of 12.6. – all information here.
Bahn AG provides information on important innovations on June 12, 2022 on a specially created website.
Reservations are getting more expensive
Under the harmless-sounding wording “adjustments to offers” hides a price increase. Instead of 4 euros (second class) or 5.30 euros (first class) as before, from June 12, 2022, seat reservations will cost 4.50 euros in second class and 5.90 euros in first class.
The family reservation, which currently costs 8 euros in second class and 10.60 euros in first class, proposes from 12.6. 9 euros for second class and 11.80 euros for first class.
The costs for long-term reservations, on the other hand, remain unchanged at EUR 41.40.
The national and international bicycle ticket now costs a standard 9 euros (also for BahnCard customers).
New connections over the summer months
Deutsche Bahn is adding these connections to the timetable over the summer months:
4 additional connections between Warnemünde, Rostock and Berlin
Direct connection from Dresden via Berlin to Binz or Stralsund
Additional connection Hamburg – Copenhagen (6 instead of 5 trains per day)
Constantly new connections
Deutsche Bahn is introducing these new connections not just for the summer months, but permanently:
Long-distance traffic for Chemnitz and Freiberg (Saxony)
Direct connection Flensburg – Prague
Additional connections ICE Hamburg – Cologne
Early in the morning: EC Lindau-Reutin – Zurich
Back again: Berlin – Westerland (Sylt)
There are also some savings offers, for example on selected long-distance connections or for the Bahncard 100, which is not exactly cheap and is only suitable for absolute frequent travelers. Details can also be found here.
