Hamburg – Munich – Hamburg 2020


If you’re travelling by car, the only guaranteed way of making the journey from Hamburg to Munich (München) in 9.5 hours is, as a rule, a gruelling overnight drive. Put your car on the UEX motorail train, however, and you’ll arrive the following morning, relaxed and refreshed, in the Bavarian capital. Without having had any roadworks, traffic jams or delays you have been crossing almost all of Germany from north to south or vice versa.

The loading terminal at Ostbahnhof is conveniently located for starting the journey to Bavarian tourist destinations such as Chiemgau, Berchtesgadener Land, the Zugspitz region, Starnberger See and Allgäu. You can also quickly reach the Salzburger Land in Austria. You arrive rested in the morning and reach your holiday accommodation on Saturday reliably and punctually to the check-in. And the same applies to the return journey: Why lose the relaxation effect immediately after a nice holiday in the motorway stress? Your time and your nerves are far too precious for that.

If you don’t have a vehicle with you, you can use the Urlaubs-Express as a “normal” night train with many additional top connections, e.g. from Hanover or Göttingen to Augsburg or vice versa.
