Traveling by Train

Travellers from some countries will need to obtain a visa before they will be able to enter Germany. Information on who must acquire a visa, and the procedures for doing so, are available from the Federal Foreign Office here.

If you need a visa, we strongly encourage you to begin the process early. It is recommended that you begin the application process at least three months before your travel.
