Berlin (dpa) - Due to weather-related disruptions, there are currently strong disruptions in long-distance Deutsche Bahn traffic in large parts of Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein.

Several places are expected to be inaccessible by long-distance traffic until the early hours of the morning, including Bremen, Kiel, Lübeck and Westerland, Deutsche Bahn announced on Friday evening.

When searching for specific rail travel connections, turnout faults due to snow and ice in the Hanover and Hamburg area are indicated.

Long-distance traffic had to be completely stopped on several routes: Hanover-Bremen, Hamburg-Bremen and Hamburg-Hanover.

A bus replacement service is being planned, it said.

Travel options by long-distance traffic are severely limited between Hanover and Frankfurt / Main.

The railway operator Metronom had previously announced that it would completely shut down its train services in Lower Saxony on Friday evening due to difficult winter weather conditions.

«Freezing rain and snow have paralyzed large parts of the railway lines in Lower Saxony.

This also applies to metronom, enno and erixx ”, announced the company in Uelzen.
