After a period of negotiation, the German government has approved a plan to encourage the use of public transport to reduce the impact of inflation when energy and gas prices skyrocket. Public transport tickets costing 9 euros a month will be applied from June 1 to August 31. Here’s how to use and benefit from the 9 euro ticket when you’re a tourist who wants to explore Germany this summer.

Note for tourists

If you are short on time, you should still prioritize buying a high-speed train ticket as trains are often quite slow and getting from one side of Germany to the other can take almost a day. Traveling between Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich, Cologne, Hamburg by high-speed train takes only a few hours. You can combine the benefits by reaching these cities by speedboat and then continuing to plan day trips with a 9 euro ticket.

The ticket is only valid for the month, meaning that if you buy the ticket at the end of the month, it can only be used for a few days. However, such a price is still much cheaper when a single ticket in Munich costs 3.5 euros, a 24-hour ticket in Berlin costs 8.8 euros and a ticket valid throughout Germany for a day costs 42 euros.

Trains take you to Germany’s 16 national parks, enjoy the serenity of the German coastline, and visit historically significant cities like Göttingen, Bonn or Weimar. For the already knowledgeable German, this is a budget-friendly opportunity to make the most of discovering parts of Germany you’ve never seen before.
