Taking the HKX train means travelling cheap and fast, with a free seat reservation
The “Hamburg-Köln-Express” train (“HKX”) provides long distance passenger rail services between North and West Germany. Our trains operate between Hamburg, Osnabrück, Münster, the Ruhr industrial area, Dusseldorf & Cologne.
We compete against state-owned German Railways Deutsche Bahn (DB) that had previously been serving the route as a monopoly.
The advantages of HKX are clear:
- 3x daily in both directions (Sundays 2x)
- Just as fast as a DB Intercity train
- Free-of-charge seat reservation
- Very competitive pricing – starting at just €18 for the whole route!
