    Changed reply in topic of Wilhelmshaven to Berlin - Sunday Transportation Options by Jeff to Hi Wendy,<br /><br />On Sundays, the fastest connections from Wilhelmshaven to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/berlin" rel="nofollow">Berlin</a> take about 5 hours.<br /><br />Wilhelmshaven does have a rail station, but it doesn't appear as though trains from there operate on Sundays. Therefore, you would first need to take a bus from Wilhelmshaven to Varel. The bus ride can take anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes in duration. A rail pass would not cover the bus, so you would just have to pay to board locally.<br /><br />In Varel, you would switch to a train to Oldenburg. In Oldenburg, you would switch to an <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/german-trains-intercity-ic-7581" rel="nofollow">IC</a> or <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534">ICE</a> train to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/hanover" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/hanover">Hanover</a>. In <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/hanover" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/hanover">Hanover</a>, you would switch to an <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow">ICE</a> that will take you to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/berlin" rel="nofollow">Berlin</a>. Any rail pass that includes <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/germany" rel="nofollow">Germany</a> does cover these trains. However, on the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534">ICE</a> trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/hanover" rel="nofollow">Hanover</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/berlin" rel="nofollow">Berlin</a>, reservations would just highly recommended in addition to the rail pass. For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/hanover-berlin" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/hanover-berlin">Hanover to Berlin</a> by searching the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow">www.raileurope.com</a>), checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling.<br /><br />For the other segments (Varel to Oldenburg and Oldenburg to Hanover), reservations are not necessary, so the rail pass is all you would need to board.<br /><br />For planning purposes, you can check schedules for the non-reserved section by doing one search all the way through from Varel to Hanover (if you try to search Varel to Oldenburg and Oldenburg to Hanover individually, the Varel to Oldenburg will not display).<br /><br />If you'd like to inquire about specific bus schedules from Wilhelmshaven to Varel, you can try searching online, or else you can call us at 1-800-622-8600. Our current hours are 8:00 AM to 6:30 PM CT Monday to Friday..

    Changed reply in topic of How to get from Oslo to Hole??? How long? by Jeff to Hi Marilyn,<br /><br />We don't have any information about car rentals, but I'm sure it'd be possible.<br /><br />Hønefoss is close to Hole and does have a rail station, but <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/oslo" rel="nofollow">Oslo</a> itself is about the same driving distance (only about 23 miles away). Therefore, I'd say your client's best option to get between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/oslo" rel="nofollow">Oslo</a> and Hole would just be to drive, or perhaps see if there are local buses.<br /><br />If he connected through Hønefoss, that would involve a drive about the same distance, in addition to the train ride..
