Please read the sticky at the top of the "Talk" page.

From what I heard, the Bundespolizei love to target the metalhead lookin people for searches though. No personal experience w/ that though.

Be prepared for customs during the train from Hengelo to Rheine. And change in Osnabrück, no directs from Amsterdam to Hamburg.

My advice: Don't be foolish to bring gras from the NL, the Germans are NOT amused when they find anything on your person.

My friend arrived in wacken last year by train after visiting amsterdam. He said there was no security checks what so ever. Here is a pic of what he brought on his person.

Germany has something known as "Flying Border Controls" by the Bundesgrenzpolizei. They hop on trains as they seem fit.

2 Years ago, on my way to Cologne they entered the train from Venlo to Mönchengladbach and checked all foreigners. ID and luggage. Fortunately 2 of my countrymen forgot their ID, so they were more occupied with them than with my luggage. And I was on my way to Dong Open Air. (and they never heard of that)
To know that I showed them both my Dutch as my Belgian ID.

So... just be careful!

(The train controller once thought I was smoking pot, just because I tend to roll my cigarettes that way.)

Normally that shouldn't be a problem, but after the failed attempts in London, I'm not so sure. Just ask your flight company what you can bring in or what not in your checked in luggage.

I remember one year when we went by coach, never doing that again...they pulled our coach over, got us to get all our baggage out of the coach and had the police sniffer dogs go through all our bags.

Somebody had some stuff on him which he promptly ate..
