To Karlsruhe you have to take a train from the Fernbahnhof (long distance train station). This is a building connected with Terminal 1 by indoor walkways. You can tug your luggage there. Just follow the signs to the Fernbahnhof. Will need approx. 10 minutes.

If you arrive at Terminal 2 you have to take the SkyLine train (monorail) to Terminal 1 first.

The trains will stop for 2-3 minutes. Get your luggage to the door room before the train stop in Karlsruhe.

Thanks a lot .. that was a very useful information.

Can you please also let me know if they would allow me to take the cart from the airport to the Fernbahnhof station and drop it there?.

Also, when you say door room, do you mean the place marked on the station for the doors to open?. Or is there a seperate location where I should put my luggage?

Thanks and Regards,

Abalada mens to say: Get up from your seat and carry your luggage to the door in time BEFORE your train arrives in Karlsruhe so you can alight immediately. If you stay in your seat until the train stoips, you will never make it. People are waiting on the platform to board the train and will start entering the train as soon as the doors are clear.
