The BayernTicket is hands down one of my favourite secret tricks when it comes to saving big on trains in the German state of Bavaria.

What kind of savings am I talking?

Genuinely, if you’re a full family or a big group, you can save over a hundred euros in a single day, and when you do the math, that is a LOT of beer and pretzel money.

So I’m guessing I have your attention, right?

Save this Bayern Ticket guide for later!

You’ll be very glad you did.

Long story short, the Bayern ticket is a magical little ticket created by the German railway company Deutssche Bahn that grants you UNLIMITED travel in Bavaria on regional trains, buses, U-Bahns and more for a day, all for a cheap price that only gets lower the more friends you bring!

The best part is, this is an easy deal to take advantage of.

The main problem is a lot of first time visitors don’t realize it exists, which is why I’ve written up this straightforward guide to understanding how the Bayern Ticket works and all the little fine print/nuances you should be aware of when using it.

As someone who has purchased dozens of Bayern Tickets over the years, trust me when I say I’ve learned a trick or two.

So, without further ado, here’s a simple guide to using the DB Bayern Ticket!

What is the DB Bayern Ticket (Bavaria Ticket)?

Long story short, the Bayern Ticket (or Bavaria Ticket in English) is a special regional train ticket for the German state of Bavaria.

It allows you UNLIMITED travel for a day on regional buses and trains.

The best part?

The BayernTicket is priced in such a way that the first passenger pays 25 euros, then you only add 8 euros for every additional passenger (up to 5 adults total).

So, imagine you want to visit Neuschwanstein Castle for the day with your 3 friends.

Instead of buying individual tickets to Füssen (23 euros each way per person) then getting tickets for the local bus from Füssen to the castle, you can instead just pay 49 euros for all four of you (25 euros for the 1st person, 8 euros for each additional).

This covers UNLIMITED public transport in Bavaria for the day, including your commute to the Munich train station, the train ride to Füssen and the bus ride to the castle. All of it! Your entire Munich to Neuschwanstein trip for 49 euros!

Do you see why I’m so obsessed with this ticket now? Think of how much money you could save. Plus it gives you more flexibility, which is helpful since German trains are notoriously unpredictable.

The great thing is you can use the Bayern Ticket to go to pretty much any touristy place in Bavaria, including the many gorgeous lakes surrounding Munich, the stunning Partnachklamm, and even Salzburg, which, while in Austria, is a route still valid with a Bayern Ticket.

Here are some excellent day trips from Munich that are do-able with a Bayern Ticket.

So, eager to learn more? The Bayern Ticket is a simple deal in theory, but in practice there are a lot of random little intricacies that stump and confuse tourists, so I’ll clarify below.

Types and Classes of Bayern Ticket

There are two types of Bayern Ticket: the regular Bayern Ticket and the Bayern Ticket Nacht (Night).

Which one you buy depends on what time in the day you intend to travel. Here is a quick summary of the differences:

Regular Bayern Ticket

Cost: 25 euros for 1st passenger, 8 euros additional up to 5 total passengers

Weekdays: Valid from 9am to 3am the next day

Weekends and holidays: Valid from midnight to 3am the next day

Bayern Ticket Nacht (Night)

Cost: 23 euros for 1st passenger, 5 euros additional up to 5 total passengers

Sunday to Thursday: Valid from 6pm to 6am the following day

Friday, Saturdays and public holidays: Valid from 6pm to 7am the next day

As you can see, the Bayern Ticket Nacht is a little cheaper than the regular Bayern Ticket.

For both the Bayern Ticket and Bayern Ticket Nacht though, you can choose between first and second class. In my honest opinion, the difference between classes in regional trains is minimal and not worth the cost difference. The main perk of 1st class is it’ll be less crowded and therefore easier for you to find a seat.

How much does a Bayern Ticket Cost?

How much your Bayern ticket costs depends on the following factors: the type of Bayern Ticket (regular or Nacht), number of passengers, and class.

This handy table from the official DB website breaks down current prices (as of March 2021):

Where can I buy a Bayern Ticket?

You can buy Bayern Tickets online here, at any DB Ticket Machine and usually at any ticket machine you find in train/tram stations (including U-Bahn, S-Bahn, etc.)

There’s also the option to buy them from a ticket person at a train station, but they charge 2 extra euros for this service, so you’re better off just buying it from a machine.

If you want a step by step tutorial, I break down the process below.

How to Buy a Bayern Ticket Step by Step

There are a few different ways to buy a Bayern Ticket, either from an in-person DB Ticket Machine or online here.

You can also get one from the special ticket salespeople in train stations but they charge 2 euro additional for this apparently, so I’m not including it here.

You can easily buy the ticket yourself without help from a random DB employee, so here’s how you do it – step by step.

Buying a Bayern Ticket from a DB Machine

STEP ONE: Look for a red DB Ticket Machine. This is what they look like:

DB ticket machines in Bavaria, Germany
DB ticket machines

STEP TWO: To activate the English menu, click on the British flag.

STEP THREE:  Look for a part of the touch screen that says “DB Special Offers” or “Top Offers”. On the DB ticket machines at the Munich Central Station, they have it conveniently located on the right side of the main screen for convenience, but on other machines it’s sometimes nested under a “DB Special Offers” button. Either way, find it and press “Bayern Ticket”.

STEP FOUR: Select the number of passengers. If you are travelling with any dogs or children, make sure you check the rules to see if you need to pay for them as a regular passenger.

Generally speaking, these are the rules according to the official DB website:

  • Any kids under 5 can ride free, always, and aren’t taken into account when counting the total number of travellers
  • For 6-14-year-olds, up to 3 children can be taken along free of charge, regardless of whether the ticket is bought for one or more people, and regardless of whether or not the children are your own
  • If your dog is small (they say the size of a house cat or smaller) then you can bring your dog on for free. If they are larger, you must pay for a spot for them and write “Hund” (German for dog) on the ticket where all the passenger names go.

STEP FIVE: Select your class. As you can expect, first class costs much more, and honestly, there isn’t a huge difference between first and second class on these regional trains.

The main perk is that first class will be much quieter and you won’t have any trouble finding a seat for yourself, but this isn’t usually a huge issue in 2nd class provided that you get there early enough.

STEP SIX: Select the date of your travel, either today, tomorrow or a separate date, although keep in mind there really isn’t much benefit to purchasing a Bayern Ticket far in advance because the price doesn’t change.

STEP SEVEN: Choose whether or not to collect Bahn points. If you don’t know what these are, then you don’t need them. You can press “do not collect”.

STEP EIGHT: Look all the details over to ensure that everything is correct. Bayern Tickets aren’t amendable or refundable unless under very special circumstances so make sure everything is correct before you pay. You’ll also see the terms and conditions on the right side when you’re about to pay.

STEP 9: Pay and the Bayern Ticket will be printed! Time to happy dance. Don’t forget to write all passenger’s names on the ticket ASAP.

Buying a Bayern Ticket Online

STEP ONE: Head over to the DB website for Bayern Tickets here. Click the red button.

STEP TWO: Select whether you want a Bayern-Ticket or a Bayern-Ticket Nacht. Then scroll down and enter all the important details like the date of validity, number of passengers and class. Click the red To Book button when you’ve entered everything.

Screenshot of Deutsche Bahn website showing how to buy a Bayern ticket

STEP THREE: At this point they’ll ask you to log in, but you can easily check out as a guest if you don’t want to make an account. Just scroll to the bottom where it says Book without Registering and press the grey Proceed button.

STEP FOUR: Select how you want to get your ticket. Most likely, it’ll be more convenient to just get a Digital Ticket. Select that and then move onto payment. Once you’ve paid, you’ll receive your confirmation, and your digital ticket which you can load onto your DB app!

Where is the Bayern Ticket Valid?

Generally speaking, as a tourist, you don’t need to worry too much about the intricacies of the Bayern ticket. If your destination is within Bavaria, and you’re taking a regional train (not ICE), you’re fine.

All the most touristy spots in Bavaria like Neuschwanstein Castle, Munich, etc. have frequent connections that you can use with the Bayern Ticket. Select routes like Salzburg are also covered.

Worst comes to worst, just ask a DB employee before boarding and you’ll be fine.

That said, if you want some clarity, here are the official rules regarding Bayern Ticket validity.

Both the Bayern Ticket and the Bayern Ticket Nacht are valid all over Bavaria for the following:

The Bayern Ticket and the Bayern Ticket Nacht are NOT valid on:

An Easy Trick for Finding Trains the BayernTicket is Valid On

I love using the DB App because it’s free and it’s the most accurate and up-to-date way to check timetables, buy tickets, etc.

One trick I really love is using it to find out which trains are regional (and therefore included in the Bayern Ticket).

Here’s how you do that.

When you open up the DB App, go to the Trip Planner and before searching your route, press the Travellers and Options section under the departure time and date.

This will open up additional Search Options. Click the grey Options tab and press Means of Transport. If you toggle the Regional Transport Only, rather than All, then your search results will ONLY show you regional trains, which means they’ll be covered by your Bayern Ticket (so long as you’re only travelling within Bavaria, that is)

*The BayernTicket and Salzburg

One of the most common question about Bayern Ticket validity is whether or not you can use the Bayern Ticket to visit Salzburg, Austria.

The answer is yes, yes you can!

The Bayern Ticket covers the Meridian Train that takes you from Munich to Salzburg and is one of the few exceptions where you can use the Bayern Ticket outside of Bavaria.

NOTE: Just don’t forget your passport – checks at the border are rare but not unheard of. I’ve experienced them twice on the train. Check out my full guide to doing a Munich to Salzburg day trip for more info.

DB BayernTicket FAQ

Have more questions about the Bayern Ticket? Here are some answers to common ones:

How can I tell if a BayernTicket is a good option for me?

From experience, the BayernTicket is almost always the best deal available if you intend to do more than one trip in a day.

If you want to double check the math though, just do a quick search for your trip and see how much a full-priced ticket would be (bearing in mind the Bayern Ticket would also cover public transport like buses, U-Bahns, etc.)

If that amount comes out to more than what your Bayern Ticket would cost, then you’ve found yourself a great Bayern Ticket deal!

How can I tell if the BayernTicket is valid for my trip?

I explained the validity of Bayern tickets in detail above, but basically if you’re travelling within Bavaria (e.g. your departure point and destination are in Bavaria) and you’re using regional trains and public transport the entire time, there are very few instances where the BayernTicket wouldn’t cover you the entire way.

Worst comes to worst, just ask a DB employee before you board.

What are the validity times for the Bayern Ticket?

Validity times are as follows:

Regular Bayern Ticket

Weekdays: Valid from 9am to 3am the next day

Weekends and holidays: Valid from midnight to 3am the next day

Bayern Ticket Nacht (Night)

Sunday to Thursday: Valid from 6pm to 6am the following day

Friday, Saturdays and public holidays: Valid from 6pm to 7am the next day

Can I also use the BayernTicket on buses?

The Bayern Ticket covers you on most buses, but there are some exceptions. If you want to double check, click here for a list of buses not covered by the Bayern Ticket.

What about kids? Can I bring children with me on the BayernTicket?

Generally speaking, these are the rules when bringing kids with you using the Bayern Ticket according to the official DB website:

  • Any kids under 5 can ride free, always, and aren’t taken into account when counting the total number of travellers
  • For 6-14-year-olds, up to 3 children can be taken along free of charge, regardless of whether the ticket is bought for one or more people, and regardless of whether or not the children are your own

Can I bring a dog with the BayernTicket?

If your dog is small (they say the size of a housecat or smaller) then you can bring your dog on for free.

If they are larger, you must pay for a spot for them and write “Hund” (German for dog) on the ticket.

Can I bring my bike with the BayernTicket?

If you have a foldable bike that fits into the regular luggage racks, then you can bring it on for free. Otherwise, you need to pay for a bicycle day ticket, which is 5.50 euros per person per bike per day.

Final Tips for Using the BayernTicket

Alright, before you run off to your new Bayern Ticket adventures, here are a few final words of wisdom I have for you based on experience:

Always buy from a machine or online, rather than from a person at the DB Ticket Desk

I mentioned this earlier, but if you buy at a DB ticket desk in a train station (i.e. if a human is helping you book the ticket), they charge a 2 euro surcharge.

Since it’s so simple to just get your own ticket through the machines, I’d advise you just do it yourself.

Munich Central train station

Make sure you check the validity times on your ticket

The DB Ticket Controllers can be pretty ruthless when it comes to kicking people off the train for riding with a Bayern Ticket that’s not yet valid, even if it’s only a few minutes before validity kicks in.

One time some friends of mine were going on a hike and they got their ticket checked at 8:55am. They were kicked off at the next station because the ticket isn’t officially valid until 9am.

Ticket machines at the Munich Central Station

Bring a pen

One of the main conditions of the BayernTicket is that you need to write down the names of each passenger riding on it. This is kind of a tough thing to do when you don’t have a pen.

Make sure you bring a pen with you so you can write down all the names before your ticket gets checked.

Usually they are quite patient with you and will let you borrow a pen, but you never know with these DB ticket controllers – sometimes they’re ridiculously grumpy.

Bring your passport

While most of the time they don’t ID you, sometimes they do check ID for Bayern tickets because they want to make sure everyone who claims to be on the ticket is actually written on the ticket, if you know what I mean.

I have also been IDed 100% of the time when buying a Bayern Ticket online.

While sometimes you can get away with showing any kind of ID, like a driver’s license, I’ve been in situations where they insisted on a passport.

This is because a lot of German officials weirdly don’t see driver’s licenses as a valid form of ID.

It’s confusing, I know, but these days I always just bring my passport with me just in case they ask.

Sit in the right class that you purchased your BayernTicket for

I’m not gonna lie, the difference between 1st and 2nd class on regional German trains is pretty negligible, so I wouldn’t blame you if you accidentally waltzed into 1st class with a 2nd class ticket.

This is a really easy mistake to make, so just double check you’re sitting in the right class. There will be a big number on the outside of the train, but on the inside too you’ll see little blue squares with either a “1” or a “2” inside.

… Always stick together

This sounds like common sense, but as a frequent user of the BayernTicket during my belligerent student days, I know that on more than one occasion, people split up on group trips and kinda waltz off to do their own thing, forgetting that literally one person in the whole group has the train ticket.

Obviously, during ticket control, it’s important that you’re sitting together or at least very close.

One time my whole group did a trip to Chiemsee, only to realize the guy holding the Bayern Ticket had gone to the bathroom and missed the bus, and the OTHER guy with the Bayern ticket had voluntarily stayed behind to be a good friend.

This meant 8 of us rode without a ticket on the bus all the way to Chiemsee without realizing… Students, man. We are not smart.

  1. Thanks for the great details! May I know after I bought the Bayern’s pass and let say I’m going to Fussen by train now, do I required a separate ticket? Which app to use to check train timing, departure platform etc?

    • No need for a separate ticket, just show the inspectors your Bayern Ticket! And you can use the DB App for that 🙂 It’s free!

  2. Hi, bought a Bayern ticket online to fussen on a weekend, the ticket indicates the time and destination. Can I ride the train earlier? Can I use it to return to munich since it is unlimited for the day? Can I use the same ticket to travel to Salzburg since it is my next destination that same day before night time? Thanks in advance

    • Hi Eric, are you 100% sure you purchased a Bayern Ticket and not a regular ticket? Usually Bayern tickets won’t indicate a destination or set time – they’ll just have the date, number of people and slots for you to write down their name. If you HAVE purchased a Bayern ticket, then yes you can use it to ride the train as many times as you want that day during the period of validity (see details in the post above) and you could even use it to go to Salzburg provided that it’s still valid when you depart. I would double check that you haven’t purchased a regular ticket rather than a Bayern ticket though because as I mentioned, Bayern tickets usually wouldn’t have a destination on them!

  3. Thank you very much for the details! We easily bought a Bayern ticket for my family of 5 and traveled from Munich to Kehlsteinhaus house. The travel was amazingly cheap and fun for this U.S. family who never gets to ride mass transit!

  4. Does the ticket cover the return to Salzburg the same day if we wish to return ? Thanks so much for the detailed analysis.

    • Yup!! The Bayern ticket is valid all day, as many trains/buses as you want (so long as the ticket covers them).

  5. Hi,
    I want to know what is the most affordable ticket to buy when we travel to multiple cities.
    We arrive in Munich and will buy the Bavaria ticket but then we go to Nuremburg, Stuttgart, Baden-Baden, Cologne, Hamburg, Berlin and then all the way back to Munich.
    Please help 🙂

    • Hi Alne. Nuremberg is still in Bavaria so you can use the Bayern ticket there. For all other cities, if you intend to take regional trains only (slower than the ICE trains, but cheaper), you can use a Quer-durchs-Land-Ticket, which is the same as the Bayern ticket but covers all of Germany (and is of course therefore more expensive). You can see the comparison chart here: https://www.bahn.com/en/view/offers/regional/index.shtml

      From my experience, ICE trains to Stuttgart are a lot more convenient, but are expensive if not booked in advance. But anyways the cheapest ticket you could get is probably the Quer-durchs-Land ticket especially if you’re travelling in a group. Otherwise, you can check Omio (happytowander.com/omio) to compare prices of trains/buses. You might be able to find a cheaper bus! Hope that helps.

  6. Hi! Thanks for the detailed guide! I’m a bit confused by this rule for the Bayern ticket- “Weekdays: Valid from 9am to 3am the next day”. I’m planning to visit Neuschwanstein castle on a Tuesday and take the 7.52am train (as advised by a few travel blogs) in order to reach Fussen by 9.55am. So would that mean I won’t be able to use the Bayern ticket for the 7.52am train? And I should get it way in advance online, right? In case the train gets full (for the summer holidays). Thanks in advance!

    • Hi Mia – you’re correct, you could only follow that itinerary if you depart on a weekend because the ticket is valid much earlier on weekends. If travelling on a weekday, your ticket won’t be valid until 9am, and yes they do check! I learned this the hard way when my friends and I were kicked off a train on our way to a hike before 9am haha. And no need to get it in advance – the price stays the same even on the day-of, and reservations are very rare for these regional trains and you should have no trouble getting on. At peak times, finding a seat altogether for your entire group might be hard, but if you get there early there will be no trouble. Hope that helps!

  7. Hi
    Thanks for the detailed report
    I am planning a trip from Berlin to Salzburg on 25th august which is a Sunday.
    Wanted to know if by using a Bayern ticket i can board the train at any time. As in suppose i want to return a little early or late in the evening from Salzburg i can keep my options open and take any train .
    Second if i do so without reserving seats will i be able to get seats

    • Hi, the Bayern ticket does not require seat reservations as they only serve regional trains, and you’ll almost always find a seat unless it’s peak peak hours/season. That said, Berlin to Salzburg is NOT a journey covered by the Bayern ticket as the Bayern ticket only covers travel within the state of Bavaria (and a few exceptions just outside, including Salzburg), so keep that in mind!

  8. Hi
    I am very sorry for the typing mistake . I am actually going to Salzburg from MUNICH. So i presume the Bayern ticket covers this journey. But my actual query was – Can i take the train back to Munich at any time or is there a specific time mentioned on the ticket.

    • Haha okay that’s much better. You can take the train back anytime that the Bayern ticket is valid 🙂 On Sunday that means you will be covered until 3am the next day.

  9. Hi, I am going to buy the Bayern-Ticket online.
    Once I purchased the ticket, how can I use it to book the train ticket online from Munich to Fussen?
    Thank you for your advice.

    • No need to book another ticket online! You just board the train with your Bayern ticket and that will serve as your ticket for the day 🙂

  10. Hi, i saw another info on city tour card. is this the same as Bayern-ticket ?
    I plan to cover Munich town and Fussen as well.Which is better ? Will be aroiund 2-3 days

  11. Hi,

    I am planning to catch a 07:52am trains on Sunday from Munich to Füssen (visiting Neuschwanstein Castle) and returning to Munich the same day before 4:00 or 5:00 pm.

    When should I purchase the ticket (Regular Bayern Ticket)? On Saturday or Sunday morning from the machine before departing?

    • You can easily buy it the morning of your departure from the ticket machine 🙂 No need to get it the day before. Have a nice time!

  12. Hi,
    I have read elsewhere that the Bayern-Ticket can also be used to travel from any city in Bavaria to Innsbruck, Austria as well as Verona and Venice, Italy. Is this correct?

    • Hi Eileen, unfortunately you’ve been given some wrong info! The Bayern ticket is not valid for Innsbruck, Verona or Venice – it is mostly only valid in the German state of Bavaria, with a notable exception being Salzburg, Austria. Hope that helps!

  13. Hi Christina! So glad to stumble across your blog! Thank you so much for such a detailed write-up on the Bayern ticket. My husband and I will be going to Munich for the first time in October and I’m sure this would come in very handy! x

  14. Great detailed post as always Christina! How helpful of you to put in pictures of the ticket booking process! I’d have been lost otherwise! 🙂
    And I agree with you – This ticket is such a life-saver (Read money-saver! :P) It literally helped us travel from our oddly situated resort in Schliersee to Munich every single day, also within and on the outskirts of Munich and we even took a day trip to Salzburg! 🙂
    We then made the most of it by travelling back to the airport ! I have seriously lost count of the number of Euros it saved our family of four adults! 400 Euros, maybe even more!

  15. Thanks for this super helpful and detailed guide. This made my day as I was super confused about the tickets. I am going from Munich to Salzburg and back in two weeks.

  16. You may never see this but I thought I’d thank you for this article I just happened to read before we left. We were finishing up a dream trip to Germany (3wks in Dec 2019 with Christmas in Berlin) and on Dec 31st in Munich we realized we had no plans for the following day – the last day of the trip as we were flying on the 2nd. Where to go and what to do on Jan 1st? The next morning we got one of these tickets and off to Salzburg for the day. It was magical – warm (compared to Canada on Jan 1st!), people were out but not CROWDS, we walked for hours on both sides of the river and into both the Alte and Neue town, watched people braver than us learn to waltz in one of the squares, had delicious foods and an evening train back to Munich. It was easily the most enjoyable vacation day I’ve ever had. And, thanks to you! Despite everything that’s happened since then, nothing can take that day away from me. I hope you and yours are safe and well and continue so.

    Thanks a ton for detail information, much apricated.
    I have one question, we are planning to go chiemsee from Munich on Saturday and its one day tour we will return back on same day, If i buy the Bayern Ticket is that also valid for return journey or i need to buy another ticket from chiemsee to Munich for my return journey.

    • Hi Vicky, sorry for the late reply! I didn’t see your comment until now but will answer here in case others have the same question. The Bayern Ticket is valid for the whole day, so you can use the same ticket all day, including for your return journey and any trips in between. Hope you had a good weekend!

  18. Just saw your brief interview on an episode of “World’s Most Scenic Railway Journeys” when they featured Bavaria!

    Is it safe to assume you were doing research for this particular blog post when you made this featured guest spot?

    • Hi Ray, sorry I didn’t see this comment sooner!! The producers contacted me after reading some of my blog posts about Munich Hauptbahnhof actually 🙂 Hope you enjoyed the episode.

  19. Hi Christina,
    I didn’t understand something. I’ll buy a Bayern ticket to travel from Oberammergau to Munich on Friday morning. Can I use the Bayern ticket to travel within Munich using public transportation or I have to buy a separate day ticket except the Bayern ticket?
    Thank you in advance!

    • Hi Vasilis, the Bayern Ticket is valid on local transport in Munich so you won’t need a different ticket (assuming you do all your travel within one day, during the valid time period). Hope that helps!
