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 €60, or let your return for €100. 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.
