Which Destinations Can You Reach Non-Stop from Any Train Station in Europe?

hamburg hbf

You’re staying in a certain city and would like to visit another city for a nice day-trip – but where can you go non-stop? The little tool direkt.bahn.guru can tell you that. It shows you which destinations you can reach from any train station in Europe without having to switch trains. You can even filter for only regional trains (for example, if you want to use Germany’s all-regional-trains-for-€49-ticket to maximum effect).

Simply search for the station of your choice in the upper right corner. You can also select local and regional trains as a filter (upper-right corner). The map then shows you the destinations with direct connections:

Direct local transport connections from Bonn central station

The colours of the dots change depending on the duration of the journey. They are dark green for up to one hour, light green for up to two hours and yellow for more than two hours.

If you click on a point, you can display details about the connection directly on bahn.de. All dates on which this route is operated are then also displayed there.

Open Source

The tool was developed by Julius Tens and you can find the source code on GitHub. If the map helped you, buy Julius a coffee.

    Hm. The filter “all trains” gives the right output indeed. The regional one is really not correct. I assume some trains are not labled in the right way 🙂 thanks!

    From Amsterdam for example you are able to visit Maastricht (just one example, but there are tens of stations missing), but also Paris, London etc. So from mutiple companies the data is wrong. Sorry! Good luck with an update

      Hi Paul! Thanks for your feedback.
      Just to clarify, this tool is not from us, we merely recommend an external website.

      Also, I checked Amsterdam Centraal, Paris Gare du Nord and Paris-Montparnasse as a consequence of your comment. All of them seem like a fairly good representation of their scheduled services. I suspect you maybe picked the wrong station (i.e. Amsterdam Amstel instead of Amsterdam Centraal) or picked the regional trains instead of long-distance. Otherwise I cannot see why we would end up with vastly different results.

      https://direkt.bahn.guru/?origin=8400058 For example, this map includes all the cities directly connected to Amsterdam that you claim are missing.

    I tried Amsterdam and Paris and the results are just wrong. Nice idea, but not there yet. Maybe remove and post the 2.0 version in a year?

      Hi Paul! I have tested the tool for several German and Polish train stations, they were all correct. Sad to hear it doesn’t work as good west of Germany. Which trains are you missing?

    Great! a very creative & useful tool.
    Many thanks to you and, obviously, Julius.
    Keep going!
