List of German railway companies

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This list contains railway companies currently operating in Germany. It includes railway units that are not independent legal entities.

They are given their authority to operate by the Federal Railway Office (Eisenbahn-Bundesamt), as long as they are federal railways or private railway companies with their headquarters abroad. All other private railway companies are authorised by the responsible authorities of the states in which they have their headquarters.

Names of all railway companies have been left in German.

For railway companies that are no longer in existence, see the List of former German railway companies.

The bulk of the railway network in Germany belongs to DB Netz, a subsidiary of Deutsche Bahn AG – this situation is a relict from the time when the Deutsche Bundesbahn and Deutsche Reichsbahn had a monopoly. The stations and halts on the DB Netz network are run by DB Station&Service. Not included in this list are museum railways and transport unions.

A distinction must be made between railway infrastructure companies and railway operating companies; see private railways.
