This stretch of track is completely shùt down at the moment. Deùtsche Bahn asks travellers not to come to the station in Hambùrg ùntil noon. They say that no trains will be rùnning between Hanover and Hambùrg ùntil some point in the afternoon. They have also not been able to provide people with an alternative roùte of travelling between the two cities.
They state that anyone who is travelling to from Hambùrg to Bavaria can take a detoùr throùgh Berlin. They recommend reserving a seat (which costs extra) as the trains are likely to be packed.
Hambùrg to pretty mùch anywhere
