Travelers can simply transfer from rail to local transportation without worrying about navigating the cities’ individual fare and zone systems – often the source of much confusion and frustration for travelers.
New York, NY (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
The special Rail Pass by DB makes Germany by rail - one of the most popular, enjoyable and reliable ways to see the country - even more affordable this season. Moreover, it offers a new way to combine and enjoy 4 of the best destinations in Germany – Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, and Hamburg – during a 5 or 6 day Germany stay.
The special is really 2 promotions in one: 20% off travel between the four cities during the 5 or 6 days, plus a free city card in each city that includes free public transportation and many discounts for the cities’ attractions like museums, tours, restaurants and nightlife.
The pass is perfect for anyone who wants to travel to any or all of the four cities during a 5 or 6 day period, because it not only makes the travel much more affordable, but it also eliminates the hassle of buying public transportation passes in each city. The city cards – called WelcomeCards – include travel on subways, trams, and buses in Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, and Hamburg. Travelers can simply transfer from rail to local transportation without worrying about navigating the cities’ individual fare and zone systems – often the source of much confusion and frustration for travelers. Plus, the WelcomeCards also offer additional tourist discounts. For example, the Düsseldorf WelcomeCard includes 30 free or reduced admissions to city attractions such as the museums K20, K21, Museum Kunstpalast and Kunsthalle, and the HopOn HopOff Bus, Rhine Tower and boat tours.
