To and from Jena

by YoGazpacho

My friend and I are visiting another friend who has been studying abroad in Jena. Any suggestions on the best (and most cost effective way) to get from Frankfurt --> Jena --> Berlin? My friend who is in Jena now says a train ticket to Berlin is around 100 euros. :/

We'll be doing this in a little less than a month, during World Cup time(!), so I expect things might get a little extra busy.

Also, I'd love any hostel recommendations for all 3 locations!

The train ticket to Berlin is 94 Euro return with an ICE, yes. If you are travelling on a weekend you can buy a Weekend-Ticket (Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket) that allows you unlimited travel on local trains (not IC/EC or ICE ones) on a saturday OR a sunday in whole Germany. It costs about 30 Euro and is valid for up to 5 persons. Of course with this ticket the journey from Jena to Berlin takes 4 1/2 instead of 2 1/2 h. For schedules and ticket prices look at www.bahn.de

DB timetable
http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/e
From: FRA airport
To: Jena
To: Berlin

Do you plan any further journeys in Germany? -> rail pass

On a Sa or Su you can travel on local trains on the - already mentioned - Happy-Weekend-Ticket for EUR 30,00. This ticket is valid for 1-5 persons travelling together. Will approx. double the travel times.
Select at the DB timetable as means of transport "only local transport" if you like to use this ticket.

Thanks! Sadly, we are going to traveling during the week, so we won't be able to use the weekend pass. For now it looks like we'll probably just go with a German railpass.

Is the bus system in Germany about the same price/quality? Or is it best to stick to trains?

No - since it doesn't exist :-)

>Or is it best to stick to trains?

It's either train or rental car... and renting a car won't be much cheaper or more comfortable. In a city, especially an unfamiliar one, the car is nothing but a nuisance.

Or try to use http://www.mitfahrzentrale.de - cheapest way to get around in Germany, but not something you want to rely on for transport. If you can arrange something, great, but be prepared to take the train if it doesn't work out.

There are occasional buses for a few major connections, check here:

Travel Tips for Jena

Thuringia

by antistar

Jena has good transport connections all over the state of Thuringia, but also beyond to Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt. It's just an hour from Leipzig on the ICE, a couple of hours from the GDR museum piece of Chemnitz, and has regional trains to whisk you to little gems like Weimar and Naumburg. Like many towns in this region it makes for a very convenient base for exploring.

JenTower

by evona

The Jen Tower was built for university on beginn of 70`s and have the height of 128 m and maybe 28 floors. You can see from here the great panorama of Jena and Thuringia. It`s every day open. The local people called the tower not very elegant: Pimmel von Jena.
In the tower there is a bussines center and down there is a shoping center with man shops and cafes. In this tower there is on the top an expensive restaurant called "Scala".
My friend Burki, he is a judge in Jena, every day looks at this tower :)

The imposing building called Viokshaus was built 1902 and opened in 1903. Today in this building is the Ernst-Abbe-Library, Jena Philharmonie, Klubkeller Modul, Sinfonieorchester Carl Zeiss Jena und Tanztheatre. The building belongs now to the Ernst-Abbe-Foundation.
