Travel abroad with the Deutschlandticket

The Deutschlandticket also allows you to travel abroad – at least within the border area. Detailed information can be found on the Deutsche Bahn website. For example, you can travel from Zell im Wiesental via Lörrach to the Swiss train station Basel SBB, which puts you right in the middle of the city on the Rhine. From Erzingen at the Hochrhein, Deutschlandticket holders can travel to the Rhine Falls in Schaffhausen without having to pay extra. The Deutschlandticket is also suitable for a trip to Wissenbourg in Alsace. The Schweighofen-Wissenbourg route is included. In Austria, for example, you can travel to Kufstein or Salzburg at no extra cost. From Pfronten to Griesen, however, the train may only be used for journeys to and from Germany – inner-Austrian routes are taboo on the Außerfernbahn.
It is also possible to use the Deutschlandticket across the border on routes to Poland, the Czech Republic, Luxembourg and Denmark.
Detailed information on which trains can be used with the Deutschlandticket can be found on the railroad’s website. Anyone under the age of 28 can use their Deutschlandticket to travel free of charge in the Grand Est region of France in July and August (tun24062602).
The Deutschlandticket costs 49 euros per month and is valid throughout Germany on local trains and many buses and streetcars. The city of Tübingen has reduced the price of the ticket to 34 euros. Adult holders of a KreisBonusCard (KBC) resident in Tübingen have been paying 15 euros per month since March. Since March, school pupils, trainees and volunteers living in Tübingen have been able to purchase a discounted Deutschlandticket Jugend-BW for 10 euros with a KreisBonusCard.
