Travel by Train

  • Osnabrück is easy to reach by train from all over Europe. Connections starting from every place in Germany are offered by Deutsche Bahn (www.bahn.de). Booking your ticket and seat reservation early allows claiming cheap ticket offers. Also special tickets released by Deutsche Bahn during promotion times should be checked to get the best fee. If you only have to travel through the state of Lower Saxony and don’t mind using regional trains exclusively the ’Niedersachsenticket’, at the cost of 22 € for the first passenger, plus 4 € for every fellow passenger ( up to 4 extra persons ), offers a great deal.

    If your journey starts around ’the Rhineland’ or ’Ruhr’ area, the new private carrier HKX (www.hkx.de) offers a cheap alternative, only not operating as frequently as Deutsche Bahn does.

    Flying in into Germany and continuing your journey by train is easy as well. For the railroad connections from selected airports please check the links above.
