The court paves the way for a strike by German train drivers

The strike in freight transport began at 6pm, and in passenger transport, according to the union's plans, it should start at 2am on Wednesday morning – and will also affect travelers to and from Germany.

A train drivers' strike planned by the German union GDL has been confirmed by the Hesse state labor court for the second time. The strike in freight transport began at 6pm, and in passenger transport, according to the union's plans, it should start at 2am on Wednesday morning – and will also affect travelers to and from Germany.

The strike does not affect ÖBB traffic via Deutsche Eck, but on long-distance connections between Deutsche Bahn (DB) and ÖBB to Munich or even further north. In Austria, trains starting or terminating in Germany only travel to the relevant border station or are canceled entirely due to changing train drivers at the border. However, trains are sometimes routed to Munich via the Brenner route, according to ÖBB.

According to APA information, ÖBB and DB customers can use their tickets to switch to local transport between Salzburg and Munich every hour. Westbahn trains run to Munich because train drivers are not changed at the border. (Abba)
