I am traveling to Gdansk from Berlin tomorrow. I know there are restrictions on the train line to Frankfurt Oder. I know I have to take a bus and then a train . Has anyone done this recently and if so where would I catch the bus at DB? Appreciate any insight.,
What does it say on your ticket? The word you need to look for at the station is Schienenersatzverkehr, sometimes abbreviated SEV.
Thanks Badger. I sent you what I was sent. Maybe I’m blind but I am unsure.
I was trying to attach a screenshot
DB has the bus departing from Berlin Hbf (Invalidenstraße) for the 2 hour journey to Frankfurt (Oder) with a 14 minute connection there into the through train to Gdansk (the 1135 from Berlin), leaving from Platform 9 at Frankfurt, or changing additionally at Poznan on the 0835 train.
Our “ train”leaves at 11.35. Without being a total dork, how can I find where to get the bus? Much appreciated! 🙏
Which station does it depart from? If it is Hauptbahnhof, then as mentioned the bus will leave from Invalidenstraße.
Great! It says Berlin HBF. Thanks all
The detail information in the time table says:
Bus40059: Berlin Hbf (Invalidenstraße)->Frankfurt(Oder) Bahnhof: Information. The bus stops at the bus terminal Berlin Hbf (exit Europaplatz) and then goes non-stop to Frankfurt (Oder). There is a direct connection to the Eurocity to Poland.
This bus stop is right north of the station across the Invalidenstrasse. Search google maps for "Berlin Europaplatz" and magnify the map view. You will see two adjacent bus stop signs at the fork off the Invalidenstrasse to the north. By clicking on them, the left one shows the label "Berlin Hauptbahnhof Europaplatz SEV".
Made it. Thanks so much. Much more helpful than a Hotel who was sending us in the completely wrong direction.
It's always good to have a nice update like this, that all went well
