Ticket inspections are made before entering the platforms on the main stations. In some stations ticket inspections are made on board of the train.

Discount cards

International discount cards dont give a discount on InterCity-services.

Interrail / Eurail 

Interrail and Eurail are accepted on all InterCity-services. Reservation is compulsory and the supplement is about € 3 to € 50 per person, depending on the level of comfort chosen.

If you are traveling on a Eurail/Interrail Flexi Pass, you only need to write the day of departure on your pass. The entire journey must be within the validity of the pass. Effectively, it therefore only costs you one travel day of the total available number of travel days.


For groups from 6 persons we offer special group fare, see Group travel by train.


The private sleeper cabins onboard InterCity Notte-trains offers a comfortable and quiet working sphere. More information:  Business travel by train
