FlixTrain now connects 16 new cities in Germany
FlixTrain is taking off in Germany. Germany’s first privately operated long-distance train network is larger than ever and includes the Hamburg – Berlin route for the first time. Furthermore, for the first time Munich, where FlixMobility is headquartered, will be connected to the green train network. In addition to the Munich – Frankfurt connection, FlixTrain is also launching its first night line from the Bavarian capital to Hamburg via Berlin. FlixTrain is thus doubling the number of routes and connecting a total of 16 new cities. The Hamburg – Cologne and Cologne – Berlin lines also remain part of the service. The Stuttgart – Berlin route will follow in June. With these exciting developments, FlixTrain is not only significantly expanding its network to a total of around 40 cities, but is now giving people in all regions of Germany a choice of which train they want to travel with. Furthermore, the company is putting an exclamation mark on green mobility: All FlixTrain trains are powered 100% by green electricity.
FlixTrain uses new modern trains on all connections and, unlike its competitors, guarantees every passenger a seat.

From Berlin to Hamburg
From May 27th, FlixTrain will start operating between Hamburg and Berlin. This means that the green long-distance trains will be part of the regular service between Germany’s two largest cities for the first time. “Our trains are about as fast as our competitor’s ICEs on this route,” says André Schwämmlein, CEO and co-founder of FlixMobility. “We are putting additional trains on the tracks and want to send a clear signal: Train travel must be accessible for everyone. And people should have a choice about which train they want to take! So it’s all the better that we’re providing an excellent alternative with modern trains, affordable prices and fast travel times.”
Coming Home: Munich is now also served by FlixTrain
Starting in June, FlixTrain will also be serving Munich for the first time, adding its birthplace city to the network: The Bavarian capital is home to FlixMobility and will be served by two lines at the start. In addition to the Munich – Frankfurt connection via Augsburg, Würzburg, Aschaffenburg and Hanau, the first night line between Berlin and Munich will also begin operation on June 17th. This means that not only is there now an independently operated train connection between Berlin and Munich, but numerous new cities will also be connected to the FlixTrain network on this line, including Nuremberg, Erlangen, Bamberg and Jena. “We want to make green mobility accessible to as many people as possible. For us, it is a milestone that we are now bringing FlixTrain to Bavaria and have thus connected all regions of Germany to our train network,” said Schwämmlein. The new service is rounded off by the well-known routes Berlin – Cologne and Hamburg – Cologne, starting as early as May 20th, and Berlin – Stuttgart, starting in June. Tickets for the entire network, including the new routes, are already available from EUR 4.99.
