Cologne – Timmendorfer Strand – Cologne 2021


Travemünde, Scharbeutz, Timmendorfer Strand – with the Urlaubs-Express you can reach directly and comfortably the legendary resorts in the Bay of Lübeck.

Whether water sports, beach vacations, extended bike tours or edification on the five cultural routes – the Lübeck Bay with its world-famous seaside resorts such as Timmendorfer Strand or Scharbeutz offer something extraordinary for almost every vacation taste. Every Saturday in summer, the Urlaubs-Express takes you from Cologne via NRW directly to the Baltic Sea, where the train stops in Lübeck, Timmendorfer Strand, Scharbeutz and Haffkrug. You don’t need your own car up here anyway. The bike path networks are well developed and the region’s own e-mobility program covers all necessities – from e-scooters to e-bikes and electric cars.

The timetables of the Urlaubs-Express are coordinated so that the train runs to coincide with bed change day and reaches its stations on the Baltic Sea around noon. The return journey starts in the afternoon, so that the day of departure can still be used well. With this UEX to the Baltic coast of Schleswig-Holstein, Urlaubs-Express is once again expanding its domestic German offerings in summer 2021.

This UEX departs during the high season every Saturday from Cologne with many boarding stations in the Rhineland, Ruhr region and Münsterland in the direction of Timmendorfer Strand. The train is equipped with comfortable first and second class seating cars.
