From June 1 to August 31, 2022, travelers can use all means of public transport for nine euros per month. The so-called 9-Euro-Ticket is valid for any number of journeys in the selected month on regional trains, S-Bahn and U-Bahn trains, as well as buses and streetcars. By linking the various transport associations, it is possible to explore the whole of Germany by local transport. 9-euro tickets are not valid on long-distance trains (such as IC or ICE) or long-distance buses. Tickets can now be purchased throughout Germany at ticket vending machines, in train stations or online via the sales channels of Deutsche Bahn or the local transport associations.
Children under the age of 6 travel free of charge. Children aged 6 and over pay 9 euros per calendar month, as do all users of the 9-euro ticket. There is no extra children’s ticket with this special offer. The conditions of the respective transport associations apply to the carriage of bicycles.
The 3G regulation for entry into Germany has been suspended now, until the end of August. Returning travellers and other entrants will no longer have to prove that they have been vaccinated, recovered, or tested.
For those arriving from virus variant areas, the stricter rules remain in place: They must undergo a 14-day quarantine in Germany, even if they have been vaccinated or have recovered. However, no countries are currently designated as virus variant areas.
The mask requirement continues to apply in local and long-distance public transport and in the healthcare sector in Germany. It also applies on aircraft departing from or returning to Germany
