The train from Copenhagen to Hamburg
Depending on when you leave Stockholm, the departure of your connecting train in Copenhagen to Hamburg may vary between half an hour to two hours.
If you have a bit of time between trains, take the opportunity to relax at one of the many lovely cafes at the Copenhagen Main Station, or walk along the shopping street Stroget, but don’t forget your departure time!
The train trip between Copenhagen and Hamburg only takes about five hours.
It includes a ferry crossing from Roedby in Denmark to Puttgarden in Germany.
The train rolls right onto the ferry and all passengers have to leave the train to go upstairs.
Make sure you take valuable items with you and remember the deck number and letter of the stairs when you leave the train (take a photo!).
During the 45-minute crossing, you can enjoy a breath of fresh sea air or the onboard cafes, restaurants, and shopping.
When the coast of Germany is close, it is time to head back down to the train where you’ll spend the last two hours of your journey before arriving into Hamburg Central Station.
