    Hey there,
    My friend and I are looking into following Maiden's tour around Europe this Summer and unfortunately this will mean leaving Wacken a day early. So we'll be looking into travelling from Wacken to Hamburg, and on to Bremen (Or Bremen directly) on August 7th.

    Does anybody who's familar with the area know of any bus/train services that operate daily between either of these two cities? I can't seem to find out any information online about it.

    Any push in the right direction would be much appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Aaron.

    The shuttle buses Itzehoe (railway station) - Wacken v.v. run daily.

    From Itzehoe there's a direct to Hamburg Altona, and in Altona, there are trains running to Bremen.

    Sometimes you can get a direct train Itzehoe - Bremen, but that is on a very IRREGULAR basis.

    More on www.bahn.de (av. in English)

    If you can't get a direct train from Itzehoe to Bremen [they have those? :eek:], there are several direct ones from Hamburg HBF. Easy enough to do.

    But you forget there are no local trains (NordOstSee-Bahn) going to Hbf. You have to change in Elmshorn.
    And Hamburg Altona is a big station too.

    There's always going to Altona and then taking the U-Bahn to Hamburg HBF.

    I told you how to go. (though SMS!!!)

    So....

    I never got lost there. And I was there last year when I went to Sylt. (Heide)
    OK, someone picked me up there. But still...

    And now I'm going to sleep (again)

    Nacht!

    You sure? I know on my way to Sipy's place last year I got a direct train from Hamburg Hbf [going through Altona but not changing] all the way to Itzehoe.

    I'm sure.

    There are direct IC trains from Sylt to Hamburg (and one of them going to Cologne and further)
    There are sometimes DB-local trains going to Itzehoe (electrified line, it ends in Itzehoe)
    And there are the NOB trains to Sylt but they run from HH Altona. You have to take a train in Hbf to Kiel Hbf and change in Elmshorn. (1x/hour)
    Heide isn't electrified anymore.

    Edit Piaf zegt: HH Altona is a 'dead end' station! All trains end there. Just like all Paris (railway) stations and (formerly) Antwerp Central or The Hague Central.

    How the heck could anyone get lost in Altona? :eek::p
    I wouldn't think it went via Altona to be honest. Wouldn't make much of sense. Only if you changed and then you wouldn't have had to change in Itzehoe. But yea, there are trains from Itzehoe to Hbf

    Nononono!!!
    Altona is also for IC and ICE trains! Just like Hamburg Harburg (though smaller) Hbf and Dammtor.

    You've never traveled with my ex.. I didn't know if the trains were upstairs or the exit to the left of where I was and my ex wouldn't let us go in any direction unless I was 100% sure that it was the correct way. Yeah.. I don't travel with him anymore.

    You can see who's used to traveling by public transport and who isn't.

    I even didn't get lost in Paris North. Not the smallest station in Europe! And I've never been there before!
    So HH Altona isn't that difficult either.

    If we go by train we'll be passing there again.
