bus/train connections from Copenhagen to Oldenburg i, H

Trying to get from Copenhagen to Oldenburg?Holstein on public transportation. Eurolines has a good connection in Copenhagen for us (Copenhagen-Hamburg) that goes right through Oldenburg but does not stop there. Can I get a bus or train from Puttgarten to Oldenburg?

There's a direct train from Copenhagen H every two hours, no changes required. Check on www.bahn.de

Thanks for your help!

I have checked the Deutsche Bahn, and see plenty of connections (with changes. Am I looking wrong?) but the one that would work for us DB would not let me book online. Don't know why. I could try when we are there, but am nervous about the time. I'm also looking at buses.

Make sure you're searching for the correct Oldenburg - there are two. You want Oldenburg (Holst.).

Yes, I see them. Unfortunately the one I want, the one that arrives 21.05 is the one I can't book on line. I may just try when we get to Europe.

Thanks, I know. My Dad was born in Oldenburg in Holstein. I've been there often, just have never tried getting there from Copenhagen-- which I thought would be easy.

Strange! For the date (4. June 2014) I tested I can see a savings fare of 29,00 EUR and the standard fare of 61,90 EUR and I'm able to proceed with "-> Purchase" for either ticket.

For which day did you check?

Indeed. Track works on the Danish side. That's why it is no direct connection.

But the timetable offers me a discounted ticket for EUR 19 which I can buy online.
