Berlin to Bydgoszcz, Poland

I am planning a trip in early 2016 and want to fly into Berlin but then see some of Poland, particularly Posen and Bydgoszczy. Is there a train that will take me to these destinations? If so, which one and should I purchase a rail pass?

    Thank you for your question, Kit.

    By 'Posen', I'm going to assume you're referring to Poznan. Both Poznan and Bydgoszcz do have rail stations, so they can be accessed by train.

    Whether or not you should purchase a rail pass would depend on the specifics of the itinerary itself and various other factors. The most economical option for an itinerary can be determined once the specific itinerary is settled upon. If you need assistance determining the best option for an itinerary, you can call us at 1-800-622-8600.

    In the meantime, you can just check schedules for trains from Berlin to Poznan by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage and entering the cites. The trains from Berlin to Poznan are high-speed 'Berlin-Warsaw Express' trains.

    To view the most possible options, you would want to choose the specific hour for each set of departures you wish to view (i.e. '01 pm' for trains that depart during the 1 o'clock hour, '02 pm' for trains that depart during the 2 o'clock hour, etc). Ideally, you would be able to click the 'Later Trains' button that appears at the bottom of the list of schedules that display. However, there may currently be an error on our site that prevents more trains from displaying when you do this.

    There are direct trains from Berlin to Bydgoszcz and direct trains from Poznan to Bydgoszcz; however, these are both currently not able to be viewed or booked on our website. If you'd like to inquire about schedules and purchase tickets for either of these trains, you would have to call us.

    If it happens that you end up purchasing a rail pass, you would still need to have reservations on the trains between Berlin, Poznan, and Bydgoszcz. If you intend on traveling between these cities only, your best option would likely just be to purchase regular point-to-point tickets, as opposed to any rail pass.
