germany rail pass

With Germany rail pass, do I still need to pay extra if I travel by RE RB ICE and IC in Germany?

And is it possible for me to buy city night train ticket with a lower price from Munich to Utrecht with Germany rail pass?

Hello Kathy,

Thanks for the question.

With a German Rail Pass you do not have to pay extra for Regional Express trains, Regional Bahn trains, Intercity trains and Intercity Express trains.

For your travel from Munich to Utrech in City Night Line train, you will avail Pass holder fare with your German Rail Pass.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,

  • Unlimited travel in Germany and extra trips to Brussels, Prague, cities in Austria and Italy on selected trains.

May I know if it includes the train from Wurzburg Hbf to Wels Hbf by ICE 23, Wels Hbf to Attnang-Puchheim by IC 642 and Attnang-Puchheim to Hallstatt by REX 4410?

Thank you very much.

Hello Kathy Lee,

Thanks for your reply.

You will avail passholder fares for your travel from Wurzburg to Wels with a German Rail Pass. You will only have to pay for Seat Reservations.

For your travel from Wels to Attnang-Puchheim and Attnang-Puchheim to Hallstatt you will have to purchase point to point ticket as it is not included in the German Rail Pass.

You can book and travel as follows :

- Wels to Attnang-Puchheim – Other train.

- Attnang-Puchheim to Hallstatt - (Not bookable on our website).

To purchase Eurail Germany Pass click “Here”.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website.

You would need to 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. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!

May I also know if I only have to pay for reservation fee for my travel from Wurzburg to Salzburg?

Thanks again!!


Also, can I buy a Austria-Germany rail pass instead of buying train tickets to hallstatt?
