Vehicle loading

“Hello, how are you!” With a smile on the face our loading crew welcomes you at the loading terminal. During the check-in in the afternoon our staff provides you with all the details of the car or motorcycle transport. Loading starts round about two hours prior to departure of your Urlaubs-Express.

The couchettes and sleepers are already waiting at the platform ready for boarding. Please check the displays and listen to the announcements by speaker as technical changes may occur from time to time.

After boarding you have the opportunity to leave the train again for some sightseeing oder shopping, while vehicle loading is in process. Please be back in your compartment a couple of minutes prior to the scheduled departure of the train.

After arriving at your destination the car transport wagons maybe have to be shunted to the car terminal, depending on the destination. After that, you are ready to go. Enjoy your holiday!
