The Orient/Eastern Mediterranean Corridor links the German ports of Bremen, Hamburg and Rostock with the Czech Republic and Slovakia – with a branch through Austria – and continues through Hungary to the Romanian port of Constanta and the Bulgarian port of Burgas – with a link to Turkey – and the Greek ports of Thessaloniki and Piraeus and extends across the sea to Cyprus.
In Germany, the rail corridor includes several branches along the Wilhelmshaven – Bremen – Hannover – Leipzig – Dresden - CZ border and Hamburg/Rostock – Berlin – Dresden routes. It comprises railways, roads, airports and ports, as well as the Elbe and Danube as inland waterways (on its south-eastern section).
