train ticket to Nuremberg.

I have to travel from Bamberg to Nuremberg. I have looked on the Bahn website but there isn't any real fares there aside from one fare for 29EU in the morning. I selected regional transport and there is nothing showing up for fares. From what I understand I buy a Bayern ticket for 2 and just hop on any train.

Would that be correct, there is no need to to make any reservation? Just buy a train ticket without reservation and go!

Thank you.

1. Re: train ticket to Nuremberg.

Bamberg and Nuremberg are inside the same local public transport association, the VGN. Thus the VGN tariff applies which is not shown by the DB timetable. While you can do this trip on a Bayern Ticket, cheaper is to use a VGN TagesTicket Plus. A day ticket for up to 6 persons - albeit only 2 of them must be older than 17 years. You need the version covering the whole VGN area which is EUR 16,80.


- no past 9am restriction like with the Bayern Ticket on weekdays

- if bought on a Saturday this ticket is also good for Sunday


Seat reservations are on regional trains not possible at all.

And are also not compulsory in Germany with long distance trains either (exceptions: night trains and the few ICE Sprinter). Thus you can always just buy a ticket and go. With long distance trains not the cheapest option as for these you can get discounted specials in advance. The specials for regional trains (like the Bayern Ticket or the VGN tickets) are always available and can be (and are) best bought on spot.

VGN Tarif Class 7 (Preisstufe 7) is sufficient for Bamberg to Nuremberg. The Tagesticket Plus will be € 14.- covering the 2 of you.
