Adjusted timetable Intercity Berlin from 2 april to 25 April

Situation on the tracks
Due to engineering works in Germany, the Intercity Berlin timetable has been adjusted from the 2nd to the 25th of April.
 
Consequences for your journey
Intercity Berlin will run via a different route in Germany and will not stop at Berlin Spandau, Berlin Hbf and Berlin Ostbahnhof. The train will end and start its journey at Berlin Lichtenberg station. You can exit or board the train there.
 
The trains will run between Bad Bentheim and Berlin Lichtenberg under replacement train numbers. This affects the information on the electronic displays at stations in Germany. You can find the replacement train numbers in the tables below.
 
Travel advice
Your original ticket and seat reservation are valid to Berlin Lichtenberg and do not need to be changed.
 
You can continue travelling from Berlin Lichtenberg by S-Bahn upon presentation of your original ticket. The S-Bahn trains run very frequently between the various stations in Berlin. Please keep in mind that your journey will take longer.
 
For your journey back to the Netherlands, make sure you have enough transfer time at Berlin Lichtenberg station. It is about a 10 minute walk from Lichtenberg S-Bahn station to the part of the station where Intercity Berlin departs.

Always check the departure and arrival times of your booked IC Berlin shortly before departure via the NS International App or in the travel planner on our website.
