Travel Info

1 or 2 x connections per hour

The relatively new high speed line used by the ICE trains which travel between Berlin and Erfurt, by-passes Weimar, so as a consequence Weimar lost its direct trains from the German capital.

As a result the best option for making this journey is to take those ICE trains from Berlin to Erfurt and connect there into other trains for the relatively short hop by Regio trains to Weimar.

The fastest end-to-end journeys are dependent on making a connection in Erfurt of under 10 mins, but tickets will be valid on any train between Erfurt and Weimar.
