From 31 August 2022, train services to Fehmarn will be suspended for the next years. From this point on, comfortable double-decker coaches will be operating as Expressbusses between Lübeck and Puttgarden, with intermediate stops in Haffkrug, Lensahn, Oldenburg (Holst.), Grossenbrode and Fehmarn-Burg.
The bus line is called "Expressbus X85" and tickets for the journey can be purchased from the usual Deutsche Bahn sales outlets (ticket machines, ticket center, website or DB Navigator app).
The buses run hourly during the day (between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m.) between Lübeck and Puttgarden. The ride lasts:
- from Lübeck to Puttgarden: 1 hour 49 minutes
- from Lübeck to Fehmarn-Burg: 1 hour 36 minutes
Please note that bicycles can only be taken on board the buses to a very limited extent. The buses are equipped with rear bicycle racks that can transport 5 bicycles. Unfortunately, it is not possible to take e-bikes, tricycles, tandems, etc. with you due to space and weight reasons.
The exact travel times can be found on www.bahn.com. Here you can also book your train and bus connection from your starting point to Fehmarn as one single ticket.
