The packed bus was heading in the direction of Travemuende, a popular beach close to the city of Luebeck, when a man pulled a weapon on passengers, local media Luebecker Nachrichten reported, quoting an unnamed witness.
The daily said the perpetrator has been detained, while police quoted by national news agency DPA said there were no fatalities.
Earlier in April, at least three people, including the driver, were killed and 20 people injured when a van ran into a crowd in the city's center.
The perpetrator was believed to have been a German man in his 40s who was the driver of the vehicle. He has not yet been officially identified, and he died after shooting himself at the scene.
The incident had come at a time of a heightened concern in Germany and the rest of Europe, following a spate of jihadist attacks using vehicles to kill pedestrians in the UK, France and Sweden. Germany has seen a number of jihadist attacks in recent years. The latest was the December 2016 attack in which a lorry was driven into a crowd at a Christmas market in the capital city, Berlin.
