Tyrol offers spectacular Alpine panoramas and numerous outdoor activities, from hiking to rafting and much more. Both regions are characterised by their natural beauty and rich culture, ideal for a relaxing and varied break from everyday life.

We are delighted that our motorail trains are once again very popular with our passengers this summer. The connections from Hamburg to Innsbruck and Lörrach are very well booked, especially in June and July – some are even fully booked. If your desired trains from the Hanseatic city are already fully booked, please check our booking portal for connections from Düsseldorf. Is your vehicle category no longer available? The car transporters have parking spaces with different maximum heights. You may be able to use a lower car or do without a roof box. In this way, it might still be possible to take a lift.
