 [Niebüll - ] Süderlügum - Tønder
Since april 2003 NordOstseeBahn GmbH (NOB), a subsidiary of Connex, provides international passenger-trains. Freight-trains are operated by NVAG, who also owns the German section of the line. The line was reopened on 2. July 2000, after the passenger traffic on the line had been shut down since 1979.

 Flensburg - Padborg (electrified)
In December 2007 DB Fernverkehr started operation of through-running services in cooperation with DSB, extending the ICE-network towards Århus.
After German regional services have been operated under the brand "Flex" for a couple of years, they are run by DB Regio again, still terminating at » Padborg, which is a better location, due to its simple layout, for the change in electrification system.
A direct connection bypassing the loop through Flensburg station is used by freight trains. Railion operates some freight-trains to Hamburg-Maschen and diesel services as far as Flensburg.

 Puttgarden - Rødby Færge (train ferry)
For a long time the EuroCity trains via this route were worked solely by DSB diesel units of class IC/3. For this reasons trainsets 76-85 are equipped with DB Indusi signalling equipment. In December 2007 a couple of services were integrated into the international ICE-network and are operated by diesel ICE-trainsets.
Since opening of the fixed line between Nyborg and Korsør, most freight-trains between Germany and Denmark run via Padborg.
