Arrive refreshed after travelling by rail and still have the convenience of your own vehicle at your destination
Travelling by Motorail is the ideal way to combine rail and road travel. Motorail trains operated by DB Autozug depart from 14 German stations to some 20 destinations in Germany and European holiday regions. Overnight travel is particularly recommended so that passengers do not lose a day of their holiday.
All trains have air-conditioned sleeper compartments or seated coaches. The couchettes are currently being fully modernized and air-conditioned couchette cars will be available on long-distance routes in the future. There are three tariffs for motorail travel according to season. The price depends on the route, date of travel, number of people and category of travel selected.
|There is a DB Autozug connection from Düsseldorf and Hamburg to Alessandria in Piedmont, Italy. Alessandria, located between Milan, Turin and Genoa, is ideal for onward travel to the Italian Riviera, the south of France or Tuscany.|
|Düsseldorf is approximately 2.5 hours from major ferry ports in Holland.|
|Higher cars are allowed on the motorail to Italy and France. Cars with a height of up to 1.83 metres including a roof rack can use all DB Autozug connections from and to the new destination Alessandria in Piedmont. A maximum height of 1.75 metres is allowed for journeys on the DB AutoZug to and from Avignon and Narbonne in the south of France.|
The terminals in Italy - Bolzano and Verona – are ideal for motorcyclists. They cut out some hairpin bends in the Alps and offer excellent starting points for motorcycle trips within Italy or to neighbouring countries.
