The Flixbus takes you from Hamburg to Lübeck in just 40 minutes at a really good price. On this short journey you are also provided with free wifi, very good facilities inside the bus and a friendly and dedicated bus driver. I can only recommend this route as an alternative to the train, in my case there were no delays, but you always have to plan for that.

It was a short journey from Hamburg ZOB to Lübeck. The journey started on time on a beautiful morning, and it was also very pleasing that the bus arrived on time in Lübeck and I was able to keep my appointments. In addition, the price-performance ratio was excellent, I'd like to keep it that way. Unfortunately, the hygiene was not particularly good, it was still within reasonable limits, but I know better. The staff could also be a little friendlier and more attentive.
