Frequently asked questions

Can I purchase a ticket for my bicycle for a long-distance train?

Bicycle transport on InterCity trains must always be paid (€5) before the trip because of the limited number of bicycle transport spaces. You can take bicycles directly to the luggage van of blue trains and pay the bicycle transport charge to the conductor. However, groups must agree on bicycle transport beforehand.

Can I transport a bike on commuter trains?

You can transport bicycles free of charge on commuter trains.

I would like to take my bicycle with me on a long-distance train. Is that possible?

You can transport a bike as hand luggage. The bicycle fee is EUR 5. Transporting a bike is possible on most long-distance trains (InterCity trains, night/day express trains that transport luggage, and some regional trains). The possibility to transport a bike is indicated in timetables with a bike icon (InterCity trains) or a suitcase icon (blue trains). InterCity train bicycle space should be purchased in advance.
