The Urlaubs-Express takes its passengers directly to the heart of the island, where, thanks to the well-developed local transport system and the network of cycle paths, you can get around perfectly even without a car, while also protecting the environment. Book your journey to Sylt with the Urlaubs-Express now for a relaxed beach holiday without crossing the border and possible uncertainties abroad.

The Urlaubs-Express runs every Saturday from Cologne from June 26th with many possibilities for boarding in the Rhineland, Ruhr area and Münsterland in the direction of Westerland. The train starts in the morning and reaches Germany’s largest North Sea island as scheduled at 2 pm, before it picks up guests an hour later for the return journey to the Rhineland. This makes this UEX day train ideal for changing beds at the final destination and offers a stress-free journey without traffic jams, car loading or changing trains. With its attractive stopovers, the train also connects Sylt with other attractive destinations such as the Wadden Sea National Park, St. Peter-Ording and the islands of Föhr and Amrum. A day trip to Hamburg becomes just as attractive. From Dortmund and Hamm, the Urlaubs-Express even offers exclusive direct rail connections to Sylt! The Urlaubs-Express in the direction of Westerland is equipped with comfortable first and second class coaches.
