A strong storm moved through northern Germany on the night (local time) of Tuesday, September 17, and into Wednesday, September 18, causing disruptions to regional and long-distance train services. Deutsche Bahn service between Hanover, Bremen, and Hamburg was delayed or canceled after trees and debris were blown across tracks on Tuesday. In some areas, extra Intercity Express (ICE) trains or buses were brought in to accommodate stranded passengers. Deutsche Bahn has warned that service along the Hanover-Bremen and Hanover-Hamburg routes will continue to experience service disruptions through Wednesday. As of Wednesday morning, there is no long-distance service between Bremen and Hanover. Further information can be found on the Deutsche Bahn website.
Potentially impacted travelers are advised to keep abreast of the situation, monitor local weather reports, confirm the status of their trains, and consider alternative modes of transportation.
