On these days, additional capacity will be provided on the trains.

Information about train arrival and bicycle transport
Please help us by following the following instructions:
Please put your wheels offset (one in the direction of travel, the next in the opposite direction).
• Secure your bike with the existing belt
• Please take your luggage bags off. All fixed seats have luggage racks above the seats.
• Please do not use the free folding seats next to your bike as a seat. Try to find a place in the other compartments of the train. This allows more bicycles to be transported in the compartment.
• Check with the fellow travelers whose bike has to be unloaded before Winterberg. Normally, almost everybody gets off the tzrain in Winterberg. There is enough time to unload the bikes.
