Purchasing tickets at

by mtandon

Hello all,

If i purchase a ticket online at, is it an e-ticket which i can print out and use as my ticket or it has to be mailed/couriered to me?

Also, does one have to print it off instantly or you are e-mailed the ticket?

Thanks a bunch again!

Hi mtandon!
If you buy a ticket online for the DB (german railways) you must print the ticket right away. This is the one you must take with you, unless you want to pay again for the same ticket. If I remember well, you won't get any other notification from the german railway.
Have a nice trip,

Re: Purchasing tickets at

by Kathrin_E

If you buy a ticket online for yourself and a trip inside Germany, it is a printout ticket (PDF). The PDF opens automatically at the end of the booking process. If there is pop-up blocker active on your computer, the opening of the PDF file may be blocked. In that case, click the link again and hold the Ctrl key.

You will afterwards receive an e-mail from DB confirming the booking, which includes a link where you can open that PDF file again. So if, for whatever reason, you cannot print the ticket immediately, there is a way - either via the link in the confirmation e-mail, or by logging in on again and opening your bookings account where you find a list of all bookings done; the ticket PDF can be opened there, too.

If you book a ticket for more than one person or for international routes, the ticket(s) will be sent by mail.

Remember that you have to take THE VERY SAME credit card you pay the ticket with and present it to the conductor together with the ticket. The credit card serves as your ID.

Depends on the ticket/route. Tickets for domestic trips inside Germany are normally available as Online-Tickets. By mail is however still an option. E.g useful if you don't have a credit card or the ticket is not for yourself. Will add however a shipping fee (EUR 3,50).

If you buy an Online-Ticket you have to bring
a) the printout
b) the credit card you paid for it
with you on the train. The credit card serves as ID to verify the printout. The other IDs offered are in first place for residents of Germany. A tourist normally won't have one of these cards.

To verify e-tickets (DB calls them Online-Tickets) the conductor needs a DB handheld. If you buy e.g. a discounted special from Berlin to Prague you can get it as an Online-Ticket as this ticket is valid only for the booked connection and the staff of these EC trains has DB handhelds. If you buy a normal ticket from Berlin to Prague you can only get it by mail as this ticket would allow stopovers inside the Czech Republic where you may proceed on regional Czech trains where the conductor has of course no DB handheld.

Travel Tips for Hannover

Visit the 'New Townhall' and...

by radzio

Visit the 'New Townhall' and go to the top of the tower- you'll get a great view of the city. Also go to the 'Regenwald haus'- the house of the rain forest and the Herrenhauser Gardens. A visit to the EXPO 2000!

Bissendorfer Bog

by elgin99

The Bissendorfer bog has a size of approx. 500 hectares and is put under conservation since 1971.
It is a particularly valuable, old moor in its central areas with a vegetation typical of himself and a characteristic surface shape.

Over the years there were changes in the marginal areas by hand peat stings and cultivation that bog still has possibilities for the regeneration.

For all nature fans recommended outdoor activity, wonderful walk.

A legend but gone

by sabsi about Finnegans Wake

Our favourite used to be Finnegan's Wake (before it was closed down and sold) :-(((((
Quiz nights were excellent and so was my first ever little VT meeting with Enzo during CeBIT 2001. Wear whatever you like but prepared that it's smelly afterwards ;-)

Great Jamaican Food

by sabsi about Montego Bay

As I am working for the Jamaica Tourist Board I had to try this new restaurant when I was in Hannover recently. It was a great idea to go really, the food is very tasty and the atmosphere is very friendly ... well what else can you expect from a Jamaican restaurant! The Jerk Chicken I had was a taste sensation. It was served with excellent Johnny Cake. My friend had the Jamaican national dish "Ackee and Saltfish" which I tried even though I don't like fish and it was very tasty as well. That one was served with "Festival" - a wonderful type of sweet bread. All this we washed down with a Red stripe (Jamaican beer) of course.

The Town Hall

by sabsi

For me Hannover has got the most gorgeous town hall in the world. It looks really old but it was only built in the beginning of the 20th century.

Inside there are four models of Hannover in the different centuries and right after the war.

Plus there is a lift to the tower, great view from up there!!
