Deutsche Bahn Strike

Dear interzum visitors,

Due to a strike on the Deutsche Bahn passenger service, only a very limited train service will be in operation between Tuesday, 05.05.2015, from 02.00 a.m. until Sunday, 10.05.2015 at 09.00 a.m. The commuter train (S-Bahn) service network operated by Deutsche Bahn will also be affected by the strike. Visitors should therefore be prepared for significant disruptions in the train services and adjust their plans accordingly. Deutsche Bahn is working intensively on a replacement service to reduce the impact on their customers as much as possible. Koelnmesse will provide a shuttlebus bus service for their visitors from Frankfurt and Düsseldorf airports as well as from Bielefeld central station. The first shuttlebus service from Frankfurt and Düsseldorf airports will leave at 08.00 a.m. and then operate on an hourly basis. The first shuttlebus will leave Bielefeld central station at 07.00 a.m. and also operate on an hourly basis thereafter. Shuttlebuses will also depart Koelnmesse for Frankfurt, Düsseldorf and Bielefeld every hour on the hour. The last bus leaves at 08.00 p.m. Koelnmesse staff will be present at the entrances of the airports and train station and will direct visitors to the shuttle bus points of departure. The buses departing Koelnmesse will leave from under Zoobrücke behind Entrance North.

You can find further information on the topic on Deutsche Bahn's home page.
