Garmisch-Partenkirchen train accident
A tragic train accident occurred in Burgrain near Garmisch-Partenkirchen on June 3, 2022, in which five people died and several were injured. DB Group is deeply affected by this accident. Our thoughts are with the deceased and injured and their families and friends. DB Group is cooperating fully with the investigative authorities in determining the cause of the accident. As a purely precautionary measure, in mid-July 2022 DB Group decided to replace ties across the German network, as ties of a certain construction type are also being examined by the investigating authorities in connection with the accident. DB Group decided to take this measure even though, at this time and at the time of reporting, the investigations into the cause of the accident had not yet been concluded and the cause had not yet been determined.
