Travelling by train
Transporting bicycles as oversized luggage is permitted on trains marked in the timetable with the “bicycle” symbol, which have carriages with special spaces for transporting bicycles. These carriages are marked with the same symbol.
Transport of bicycles is also allowed on regional (Os), regional fast (Sp) and express (R, Ex) trains in the entry areas of the first and last doors of the train, where a maximum of two bicycles may be transported at the same time (unless it is forbidden for technological or safety reasons). However, the transport of bicycles as oversized luggage is possible only until the capacity of spaces on the train has been exhausted.
Children’s trailers pulled behind a bicycle can be transported as oversized luggage as well, although they must be detached from the bicycle during transport. They must be attended to during transport like children’s strollers or prams, and are transported free of charge.
Tandem and multiple-seat bicycles may not be transported as oversized luggage.
Transporting bicycles using the luggage storage during transport service
The luggage storage during transport service is provided on trains marked in the timetable with the symbol of a suitcase. The suitcase symbol can also be found on the service carriage or compartment where bicycles or other items can be stored in this manner.
Before depositing a bicycle in the luggage storage during transport service, it is always necessary to remove all easily detachable parts.
Reservations for a bicycle
To ensure a carefree train journey with your bike, you can in most cases reserve a space for your bike in advance (up to 60 days prior to travel).
