Christmas season train passengers in Germany double
Germany’s national railway says it saw more than twice as many travelers over the Christmas period than last year. But passenger figures were still below pre-pandemic levels.
Deutsche Bahn said it saw 1.6 million passengers and its trains were on average about 40% full between Dec. 22 and 26.
A year ago, Germany was in a lockdown during its second wave of infections. This year, authorities are adding restrictions to slow the advance of the omicron variant.
