1 day pass vs one way ticket - How much?

Hello,

Trying to decide if I should purchase a one day pass or just get single ride/way tickets.

I don't remember how much is a day pass VS a single ride/one way ticket.

I'm pretty sure we will only take a train from our train station to the main train station to go to Munich and back to our apt.

So just trying to find out how much.

Thank you

Hmmm? Where is "our train station"? In Nutley, New Jersey? Or somewhere around Munich?

You can check connections and prices with the MVV timetable.

mvv-muenchen.de/en/…index.html

But most likely a mini group day ticket will be the best deal.

Prices depend on the number of zones crossed. E.g. from the airport (in the outer MVV zone) to Munich a single ticket is EUR 8,80. A mini group day ticket is EUR 18,00. Thus already for 2 persons return (2 x 2 x 8,80) the much better deal.

Mini group day tickets are good for up to 5 persons and are valid till 6am next day.

:) pretty funny...

i meant in Nuremburg.

from Amselftrabe to Nürnberg Hbf and back from Nürnberg Hbf to Amselftrabe

(Amselftrabe - is the name of the street in Nuremburg where we are going to stay)

Again, just not sure if cheaper to purchase single way tickets or one day pass.

Thank you.

map with public transport lines in Nuremberg

www.vgn.de/media/static/stadtverkehr_nue.pdf

Closest U-Bahn (metro) stop is St. Leonhard at line U2.

Next close train stations are Rothenburger Str., Steinbühl and Schweinau.

St. Leonhard to Hauptbahnhof (main railway station) qualifies for a short hop ticket. EUR 1,50.

A TagesTicket plus (a day ticket for 2 adults) is EUR 6,40. Covers all of Nuremberg. If bought on Saturday it's also good for Sunday.

It really depends why you want to go to the Hauptbahnhof in first place.

a) you want to go to the city centre

Just walk. The city walls are a good kilometer from your place. U-Bahn stop St. Leonhard approx. half a kilometer.

b) you want to take a train from the Hauptbahnhof to somewhere else. Here it will depend where the "somewhere else" is.

Amselftrabe is Amselstraße

the letter ß is not a b or β. It's the Esszet or sharp S.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esszet

If not available (e.g. in 7-bit ASCII) it's rewritten as "ss". Thus the street name becomes

Amselstrasse

e.g. to get connections with the DB timetable

From: [Address] Nürnberg, Amselstraße <house no.>

or

From: [Address] Nuernberg, Amselstrasse <house no.>
