Making an international journey?
Our airport service takes your luggage almost right to the gate

For a comfortable rail journey to the airports Berlin-Tegel, Frankfurt/M., Hamburg, Hanover, Leipzig/Halle or Munich-Erding, you can simply send your luggage to one of our left luggage depots at these airports.

You can collect it there before departure and then check in with your airline. On your return, these depots will also arrange transport of your luggage back to your home address. In the interests of simplicity, we advise you to purchase your luggage courier ticket for the return journey together with the ticket for the outbound journey. Tickets are also available from DB Travel Centers or the DB agencies at the airports.

If your luggage is stored for more than 3 working days, a charge of between 2 and 3 euros, depending on the airport, is payable for each item of luggage and day.
