Dive into our data

DB Open Data

What is it all about?

DB Open Data is all about data that is freely available and published under free licenses. As part of this initiative, we publish our railway data. At the Hackathons, we want to see what you can do with it.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for experts with an interest in data, coding and the ability to think outside-the-box. We welcome both teams and lone wolves.

Why participate?

Our data simplifies developing data-driven applications. During our events you can connect with internal and external experts, and open up the door for future cooperation.

For a comprehensive introduction: The mCloud of the BMVI is a research platform for open data on mobility and related topics.

The DB Open Data-Portal can be found at: data.deutschebahn.com 
(from where the APIs at the Developer Self-Service-API-Portal are linked: http://developer.deutschebahn.com/)
