Notes from a Traveller Jul 2010: Note: there are 2 different prices (via Büchen and via Lübeck), but it's better to use the train via Lübeck Central, it's easier to get into the really comfortable train to Hamburg and you can use the 15 min in Lubeck for a snack at the bakery, Wok-express or McDonalds.
