DB Bahn Machine at Venlo?

Hello

Can someone tell me if there is a (working) DB ticket machine at Venlo station?

Or how I can contact DB to find about it?

Is it possible to buy a ticket to Dusseldorf from there for traveling in Regional trains

and how much will it cost?

I could not check fares online for regional trains.

Thanks

SM

I bought tickets for Ghent, Belgium from an NS machine. Are you sure you need a DB machine?

And why not buy tickets through www.bahn.de in advance and print them at home?

Thanks..

I am bit unsure about the timing to book fast trains.

The regional trains I can see timings at DB but not price so cant book them.

On the website nsinternational.nl I get this message: "Treinen voor dit traject zijn niet online of telefonisch te boeken. Tickets zijn te koop via de kaartverkoop automaten op de stations. Indien u online uw ticket wilt boeken gelieve uw vertrekstation te wijzigen naar Blerick."

(I can translate it for you in case you don't speak Dutch).

This makes me think that you can buy a ticket to Düsseldorf at the yellow NS machines, just like I did for Ghent. But if you want to be sure, you can phone NS, or ask them in Twitter where they respond very quickly.

Good luck and have a good trip!

AFIK indeed there is such a machine, but it should give same price as the normal yellow NS machine for these stretches. It could however have access to a few extra types of tickets like the Bahn regional day passes.

Thanks!

But the last update is from 2011 after which I know the station was renovated.

I will call NS and try to find out about availability and fares.
