Two questions:

1) What do you need to know?

2) Why have you posted this in the Vienna forum when your journey is from the Netherlands to Germany? It certainly won't be an ÖBB journey!

Good information above.

Also if you have a scanner with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) it's possible to scan a ticket/document and then paste the text into something like google translate.

I'll bet the ticket was purchased from the Dutch rail website and is printed in Dutch, not German. They are similar languages (I speak both).

Still have no idea why this is being asked (and answered) in the Vienna forum! ;-)
