Taking luggage on the WESTbahn

Taking luggage on the WESTbahn

Make the most of your journey

Every WESTbahn carriage has a lockable luggage rack on the lower deck, which is available to our passengers free of charge via a deposit system. This luggage rack offers enough space for larger items of luggage – please be aware that larger items of luggage cannot be stowed on the upper deck of our trains. On this page we explain the procedure for using our onboard luggage rack.

Travelling with luggage – it's that easy:

Safely stow your luggage in the lower decks of our WESTbahn trains.

Step-free access to the luggage rack

Our low-floor coaches all have step-free access and extra-wide entrance doors. Our spacious luggage racks are located in every carriage directly next to the sliding door on the lower deck.

Each luggage rack has 12 lockable luggage security locks. A 50 cent or 1 euro coin is required as a deposit for use – you will receive this back after use.  

Tip: Our trains are usually ready for boarding at the respective departure stations up to 20 minutes before departure – you can stow your luggage without stress well before departure.

Storing Trolleys

We kindly request that small and medium-sized trolleys be placed under the seat to keep the aisle clear and ensure smooth boarding and disembarking for all passengers.

In addition, smaller items can also be stored in the overhead compartment above your seat.
