New trains from Poland to Germany: connections and departure times?
The rail connection between Poland and Germany is particularly popular among travelers, which is why PKP will launch two new trains in December. Find out where you can get to and from by train and how long the trip will take
The special popularity of the railroad connection between Poland and Germany is due not only to domestic tourism, but also to the fact that many Ukrainian refugees have been granted temporary protection in Germany. And when planning a trip to and from Ukraine, they travel through Poland, because since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, the country has become one of the most important logistics transit points.
Therefore, carriers are constantly working to expand transportation links between the two countries. Thus, on December 10, two new trains will start running between Poland and Germany, operated by the Polish carrier PKP. Tickets for both will be available for sale in the mobile application and on the official PKP website.
