So if you want to travel nationwide by bus and train, you only pay €9 per month for all journeys in June, July and August.

  • It is valid for one calendar month, from the first (00:00) to the last (24:00) day.
  • It is valid nationwide on all buses and trains (regular buses, streetcars, subway trains, regional express trains and regional trains).
  • The ticket is valid only in the 2nd car class.

Regulations for the transport of bicycles:

  • Bicycle transport is not generally included in the 9 € ticket. In principle, the regulations of the participating transport associations apply, some of which are subject to a charge.
  • From June to August the trains will be very crowded, so taking your bike with you cannot be guaranteed. If there is no more capacity, passengers with reduced mobility, pregnant women and baby carriages always have priority over passengers with bicycles.
  • We recommend renting a bike at the exit station. Travel by bicycle on holidays should be avoided if possible.


Carry-on rule:

  • Children up to 6 years can be taken free of charge.
  • Children 6 years and older need their own ticket.
