I would like to know if the trains are crowded during xmas period (23 to 25 dec)?
Hi! It is a very popular travel time, so please do the reservation with seat reservation in advance. Best regards
Yep, a seat reservation only costs 3 euros
Thanks! Of the 3 days (23/24/25) which day is actually least crowded?
Trains are only crowded the days before the 24th of December because many people travel home from the larger cities to their home states during this period.
On the 24th and 25th there won't be any crowded trains, although there might be a few more passengers before noon on the 24th, also because this day legally is a working day, but the masses will have traveled home on the weekend before (because most employees do not have to work).
Personally, I think that the 19th (Thurday), 20th (Friday) and the 21st (Saturday) of December are the busiest days before Christmas.
Many employees - like me - will have taken off the 23rd this year (2019) because it is not expected to return to work for just one day. And that means that a lot of people leave the cities on one of the last working days, which are the day mentioned above.
An evening train of the 24th will be fairly empty.Edited: 7:31 am, May 15, 2019
