Transporting bicycles

Transporting bicyclesIf you take a train, you choose one of the most environment friendly ways of transport. Perhaps only biking can beat it. And the two can be linked…

And what is more, if you take a train, you can plan your trip without constraint, without having to return to your destination where you drove.

You are awaited by several towns and regions even after you have got to know your immediate “range” and you want to boldly ride your bike where no one has ridden before. For this you do not have to bike through borders, our international trains offer not only to you, but to your bike too a comfortable and safe way to travel. Some of our trains feature all year round or only in the summer a car to transport bikes, in which – close to your bike – you can travel comfortably, and maybe spend the night in a fully made-up bed.

In the 2008/2009 time-table year the following routes will feature bike transporting cars:

Budapest-Párkány-Pozsony-Brno-Prága-Drezda-Berlin(-Hamburg)
