Mannheim transfer to Berlin

We have an 8 min transfer time between Freiburg (ice 202) and Berlin (ice 692) at Mannheim on 30 June. And we do not have Gleis (platform) numbers for either. I am a little concerned we will miss the connection.

Can anyone tell me the platforms they depart from please?

Also how do I get to platform #12 as we will have a longer (40 min) transfer there on an earlier date? I understand it is a new platform and doesn't appear on the map.

Hi Angela!

ICE 202 will arrive at platform #3 and ICE 692 will depart from platform #2. You will only have to go across the platform and this is easily doable in 8 min. You should know that if the first train is delayed and you miss the next one because of that you can take any other train to Berlin. In that case it would be best to talk to your conductor in ICE 202. He will write down on your ticket that the train has been delayed and can give you the next connection. You can also do on the Infopoint in Mannheim.

You can find platform #12 right behind platform #9/10.

If the train is delayed and you miss your connection, you just hop on the next one. Having the ticket verified by a conductor is no longer necessary. All delays are in a computer system.

Tracks #2 and #3 share the same platform. Thus the distance is just the width of the platform (8-10 m) and maybe a few meters to get to the next train door. Something you can do in 8 seconds if it must be.

Two and three share the same platform. You just cross over to the other side. If you miss the connection you take the next ICE, 8 min is ample for a transfer even if you have a lot of luggage.
