Finally, no more changing trains: every train passenger should know about this online map

If you are wondering how the Bahn Direkt web application works, you will find the answer on the manufacturer’s website. The app accesses a Deutsche Bahn API to find all direct connections within the next one to two weeks.

This includes most trains in Central Europe, but there are fewer and fewer data points the further you get from Germany, i.e. when routes are not operated by Deutsche Bahn.

The manufacturer also points out that trains from smaller transport companies are often missing – but unfortunately there is no other option than to use official train data. There simply isn’t a publicly available dataset of rides.
