The BlueTrain to Sylt


WINTERFAHRPLAN mit Weihnachten/Silvester/Neujahr – Ab sofort (15.12.2019) gilt der neue Bundesnetzfahrplan 2020. Bis 30. März 2020 fahren wir je nach Wochentag regelmäßig 20 Fahrten täglich, im Frühling/Sommer dann bis zu 26x pro Tag nach Sylt und zurück aufs Festland. Alle genannten Zeiten sind Verladeschlusszeiten, bis zu denen Fahrzeuge bei unserem freundlichen Serviceteam (rechts die Spuren 9-11 in Niebüll sowie 7-8 in Westerland/Sylt) eingecheckt sein müssen. 

FRÜHER VOGEL – Schon jetzt sind alle Fahrten 2020 (bis 30.10.2020)  in unserem Online-Ticketshop buchbar, auf Wunsch auch mit Reservierung. Für die besonders günstigen Online-Sparpreis-Tickets (ab 19,90 Euro/einfache Fahrt) gilt – solange der Vorrat reicht. Also, am besten gleich Kalender und Fahrzeugpapiere (für die Maße) bereitlegen – und direkt die Autozuganreise buchen. Ansonsten sind Fahrkarten auch wie gewohnt vor Ort auf den Verladeterminals in Niebüll (Spuren 9-11) und Westerland (Spuren7-8) bei unserem freundlichen Serviceteam bequem vom Auto aus erhältlich. 

About us

Welcome to the BlueTrain to Sylt. Since Fall of 2016, we have transported travelers to the island of Sylt and back, quickly and safely, in their vehicles, at a favorable all-in-one price that covers all passengers and luggage. As a Sylt company based in Westerland, we offer our passengers a friendly alternative to the DB Group featuring personal check-in and a clear view of the Wadden Sea from our modern flatcars. Two brand-new, bright blue locomotives affectionately known as “Debbie” and “Anne” reliably pull our two blue trains to Sylt and back. Quietly, economically, and reliably – that is our promise to the island of Sylt and its guests.

Passengers check in and board our train at the loading terminals in Niebüll and Westerland. Address: Kurt-Bachmann-Ring 2, 25889 Niebüll, Lanes 9 to 11, and Industrieweg 16, D-25980 Sylt, Lane 7+8. During the 35-minute crossing, you remain comfortably seated in your vehicle. Click here for pointers on how to get to the terminals.

Tickets: You can buy tickets from our friendly service team right in our loading lanes at the loading terminals (cash or EC/credit card).

Prices: Our regular rate is much more reasonable than our competitor’s: We’ll take you to the island for €61, or let your return for €105.  Travelers not traveling at the weekend can use the inexpensive DiMiDo ticket (return ticket €85) if both journeys are during the week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. Click here to discover all our prices.

Frequent Traveler Cards for all: Our free Frequent Traveler Card lets you travel at the favorable “DiMiDo rate” (applies Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) on any weekday. Simply apply for your free Frequent Traveler Card here and start saving on your very first trip: Frequent Traveler Card for the BlueTrain to Sylt

Island residents: As a Sylt resident with proof of entitlement (residence on Sylt and vehicle registration on Sylt), you are eligible for attractive special discounts.

Vehicles: We transport cars, SUVs, vans, vehicles with trailers, trucks, buses and caravans up to a maximum height of 4.05 m, a maximum width of 2.86 m, a maximum length of 20.50 m, a maximum weight of 50.0 t and a ground clearance of at least 10 centimeters.
