    Hey,
    I'll be flying in and out of Berlin. I'll be arriving in Berlin a week or so before Wacken.

    How long is a train ride from Berlin to Hamburg?

    Where would I catch the train? Charlottenburg?

    Where is a good website that has information in english? I can only find info in German.

    Thanks.

    I've just asked in the german forum, although there are not too many berliners there, I think (not since Argon Factor is offline)

    Hi Konstrukt,

    first I don´t know a good website in english but let me have a look.....

    Perhaps I could help you.

    Give me your details about arriving in Berlin on airport and I will check the informations about train and so on.

    I'll be arriving in Berlin about a week before Wacken. I'm going to stay in Berlin for a while and be a tourist, then go to Wacken.

    I NEED to see the Pergamonmuseum, I studied so much about in college, that i HAVE to see the damn thing.

    I was just interested, in case i did something really stupid and should have flown in straight to Hamburg.

    Anyway, I'll be arriving in Berlin July 23rd.

    okay, let´s see what we got here...
    it would take a little less than 3 hours to get from berlin zoologischer garten to hamburg. i can´t tell you anything about the price, but it´ll be veeeeeeeery expensive... :D try to find someone who drives from berlin to hamburg or wacken, would be cheaper i think...

    It may not be a reliable source, but I've just seen on the web that a train trip Berlin-Hamburg will last about 140 minutes.

    I almost post the right time! :D:D

    Yes, german trains are fucking expensive, as far as I know. Certain journeys are cheaper by plane (Cologne-Hamburg, for example)

    A train Cologne-Hamburg costs about 120-130€ (the 2 ways trip). And it must be a similar distance between Hamburg and Berlin.

    Ok... thats kind of expensive, but it won't break me...

    Thanks for all your help!

    One last thing, do i have to buy tickets in advance? Or when i get to the station? In the USA, travelling by trains is like airplanes, its best to buy in advance.

    something around 100€ i think... BUT... see if you can book the trip as fast a possible when you are in germany. if you book 7 days before your journey, it´ll be 40% cheaper...
