High Speed Rail to Germany
September 28th, 2011 by elisa

Those looking for a quick trip to Germany and who don’t like flying will be happy now that German rail operator Deutsche Bahn (DB) has announced plans to start a full inter-continental high speed rail service in 2013.

It had a successful test run through the Channel Tunnel to London St Pancras, so plans to operate high-speed services to Rotterdam/Amsterdam and also Cologne/Frankfurt using Brussels as the connecting point.

The chairman of the DB Management Board, Dr Rutiger Grube, said, “By making full use of the opportunities afforded by the liberalisation of the European rail transport market we are able to offer our customers genuine alternatives to air travel.”

Travel time from Cologne and Amsterdam to London is expected to be under four hours and from Frankfurt just over five hours.
