German Rail Pass- Work for all trips between cities?

Would a German Rail Pass work for travel between all the cities on our itinerary? Berlin to Dresden to Nuremberg to Munich to Heidelberg to Frankfurt to Cologne? Would any additional tickets need to be purchased, or would the rail pass work for all these trips?

Hello Lauren,

Thanks for the question.

With a German Rail Pass you can travel on all the trains except night trains which require compulsory seat reservations. Seat reservations on ICE Sprinter train is recommended but not mandatory.

To purchase German Rail Pass click "Here".

In order to book seat reservations, please visit our website.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on “Seat Reservations” & feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,
