Coaches from London to Germany, basic info

Travelling by coach from the UK to many big cities in Germany isn’t complicated and compared to planes or trains, coach services are usually cheaper. Travel time varies depending on the distance of your destination. The majority of the route is on highways and the coach journey from London takes approximately 10 hours to Aachen, 12 hours to Dusseldorf, 13 hours to Cologne, 20 hours to Berlin, and 22 hours to Munich. There isn’t a single service from London, which reaches out to all cities in Germany. There are several separate routes from London and each of these connections comes to a different region in Germany. Several of the coach services are direct routes, and some aren’t, it means that you have to move to another coach. Before the coach terminates, it also stops in a few other big cities in Germany. Most coach services to Germany depart from London in the afternoon and arrive to Germany in the next day. Some of them also stop at Gillingham, Folkestone (for Kent) and Dover. In peak summer season you will find more connections, naturally the exact timetable is subject to change – just check the current information directly on the Eurolines website The cheapest way to travel to Germany is definitely the coach. If you are on a tight budget, then taking the coach can offer some amazing cost savings.
Whilst offering excellent fares some of these coach companies featured offering a very high quality service - you can expect reclining seats, extra hold luggage, free wifi, sometimes they offer you free tea or coffee and you also have power sockets at each seat.

Discover Germany

Cologne

Now the fourth biggest city in Germany, Middle Age Cologne was one of the most important cities in the Holy Roman Empire. In 1248 work began on its imposing cathedral, known as the Dom. It was once the world’s tallest building, but still is Germany’s most visited attraction. Over the Christmas holidays, the colourful and bustling Christmas markets use the Dom as a dramatic backdrop. Sightseeing in Cologne is concentrated around the Dom, with three major museums stones throw away.

Frankfurt

Fourteen museums make up the longest mile of museums in Europe – the Museumsufer (Museum Embankment) on the southern bank of the Main. Sachsenhausen, the oldest district in Frankfurt, lies on the south side of the river and is one of the traditional entertainment areas with bars, clubs and restaurants housed in traditional buildings. Visitors can climb up the 328 steps of Emperor’s Cathedral tower for breathtaking views of Frankfurt.

Berlin

When it comes to fashion, art, design and music, the German capital is the city to watch. Bursting with an enviable list of attractions for visitors to enjoy including: museums, galleries, gourmet restaurants and even opera houses, Berlin caters for all tastes. Historic 20th century landmarks are all around you in Berlin, the Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie and what’s left of the Berlin Wall. It’s not just the history that draws visitors here. The nightlife is an essential part of Berlin where the cafes and bars are vibrant meeting places for locals and tourists alike. You won’t be disappointed spending time in this fascinating city.

Munich

Munich is the Capital of Bavaria and lies near the foot of the Alps. Germany’s second most popular destination after Berlin, it has something to offer everyone, be it culture, hi-tech, parks and greenery, night-life, architecture, beer gardens, shopping or the skiing and sailing close by. Oktoberfest is one of the things that puts Munich on the map. Marienplatz, where the main pedestrianised streets converge, is the undisputed centre of Munich, and the location of the impressive town hall, the Neues Rathaus. Many of the city’s main attractions are in the immediate vicinity, so sightseeing can easily be done on foot or by hopping on and off trams. The former artists’ quarter is now considered the most fashionable part of the city, with numerous cafes, bars, restaurants and nightlife venues.

It's easy. Buy a ticket online now.

The journey from London to Germany by Eurolines

Transport from London to Germany is carried out with traditional Eurolines’ vehicles. All Eurolines’ coaches have on-board toilet and washroom facilities, reclining seats and air-conditioning as standard.
 Sometimes the coach that picks you up from your departure point has only the final destination displayed on the front windscreen. This is because the majority of Eurolines routes include multiple stops and it would be impractical to display every stop on the front windscreen. Also, you may have booked a journey which requires a change of coach. In both examples, please ask the driver to confirm that his/her coach is going to the destination stated on your ticket. 
Eurolines put the safety and comfort of passengers first, so the vehicles are equipped with a large number of safeguards. The operators are using modern vehicles with large panoramic windows and increased legroom. 
Eurolines coach services to Germany depart from Victoria Coach Station in London which is located close to Victoria Underground and bus stations. Eurolines coaches arrive and depart mostly at the German main bus stations, known as ZOBs Buy a ticket online now.

The carrier provides service to any person who has purchased a ticket. Number of tickets for the designated route is limited to the number of seats. Having a valid ticket guarantees you use of the service (seat on the coach), however it does not reserve any particular place.
Single and return tickets (with the indicated date and time) are for a specific journey, you cannot miss the departure because you will lose the ticket.
Best to buy tickets well in advance. Eurolines has many discounts for those who decide to purchase tickets in advance. Constant, although a slight discount is provided for youth, elderly and disabled people. Up to 50% discount is provided for children. Unless you get a good promotional fare (mostly the FunFare ticket), return fares are much cheaper than two single fares each way.


  • Before leaving home for your Eurolines service, check you have packed all documents and items needed for your journey, especially your ticket, passport (sometimes it is enough to travel with ID card) and if your journey requires a special visa to enter or transit.
  • Arrive at the Victoria Coach Station in London at least one hour before the departure time, as check-in proceedings are quite lengthy. Customers need to check-in at the Eurolines check-in office located adjacent to Gate 19. Check-in commences one hour before departure and closes 15 minutes before to enable all customers to board and to ensure a prompt departure.
  • Your luggage should be marked tags bearing a name, address and telephone. Please weigh your luggage at home.
  • Never accept other person's luggage for transport! Should you notice any luggage left unattended, never touch it! Report the fact to the station’s service staff immediately. Never leave your luggage unattended!
  • When approaching the check-in desk, have your passport and ticket ready. This will streamline the procedure.
  • Border control & customs: When going through security check, place all metal items such as keys, watches, belts with large buckles, mobile phones, walkmans, small change etc in the boxes, and place them on the conveyor belt of the X-ray machine together with your hand luggage & suitcases. It is advisable to place your overcoats in the boxes. This will streamline and facilitate security control.
  • If needed, remember to take your doctor’s certificates.

You must check-in no later than 30 minutes before the departure time stated on your ticket. Check-in closes 15 minutes before departure. 
If there’s no office for check-in, then check-in takes place directly on the coach. Services returning to London arrive in Victoria Coach Station’s Arrivals terminal, customers making onward coach connections will need to cross the street to the Departures terminal

Sea crossings

This route involves a sea crossing which, depending on which service you are on, will either by Eurotunnel or by ferry (check timetables for specific information). On arrival at the ferry port or Eurotunnel terminal customers will be required to disembark from the coach and pass through both UK and destination country Border Control offices and show their Passports. Normally customers are not required to be accompanied by their luggage, however occasionally Border Control officials do require customers to take their own luggage with them.

Refreshment stops

Refreshment stops are taken periodically throughout the journey providing the opportunity for refreshment and shipping services used by Eurolines provide a range of shops, restaurants and other facilities.

Carriage of luggage

All Eurolines customers must label their luggage which will be loaded into the hold of the coach and will normally remain there until arrival at the destination or interchange point. The Coach driver will load and unload customers’ luggage but customers are responsible for seeing their own luggage onto and off the coach on which they are travelling.
Each customer has a free luggage allowance of two medium sized suitcases, weighing no more than 20 kilograms each and 1 piece of hand luggage, which must be located on the shelf above your head or under the passenger seat.

Travel insurance

The best way to protect against unexpected accidents is to buy travel insurance. In my opinion, so that the journey is stress-free, you should never travel without travel insurance. You can insure only for travel, it’s possible directly on the Eurolines website, during ticket purchase. You can also insure individually with another insurer. This will be the insurance that will apply during the journey and while in a foreign country. The insurance should cover: loss of cash and goods, cancellation of travel and the main treatment abroad. If you travel several times a year and want to save money, you may want to buy an annual insurance policy. Click here to buy insurance.
