With the start of the summer timetable on June 12, Deutsche Bahn is further expanding its long-distance services with more trains, new direct connections and additional journeys. In the process, the weekly number of seats will rise to over three million for the first time. That's 20 per cent more than in summer 2019, with more XXL ICEs than ever before in operation from Sunday onwards: on particularly popular connections, the 32 extra-large ICEs each offer space for around 1,000 passengers.

"We can achieve this new seating record thanks to the continuous expansion of our long-distance service and vehicle fleet. In this way, we are creating enough space for the sharp rise in demand. The desire to travel is greater this summer than ever before," says Michael Peterson, DB's head of long-distance transport.

Chemnitz will be reconnected to the long-distance network. Twice a day and in each direction, modern Intercity trains will run from the Saxon city to Dresden, Berlin (including BER Airport), Rostock and the Baltic coast. Flensburg will receive a direct connection to Prague via Hamburg, Berlin and Dresden. The thorough Intercity service between Berlin and Westerland (Sylt) can once again operate permanently. Early in the morning, there is a new Eurocity connection between Lindau-Reutin and Zurich.

DB is also expanding its weekend timetable over the summer months with two additional connections between Warnemünde, Rostock and Berlin and a direct connection from Dresden via Berlin to Binz on Rügen or Stralsund (both outward and return journeys). From June 18 to August 21, there will be six trains a day in each direction between Hamburg and Copenhagen instead of the previous three.
