German Rail Pass Questions

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling to Germany alone with my 16 year old son (I'm Mom). We are planning on buying a 9 or 10 day 1st class twin Germain Rail Pass. I decided 1st class may be better since we will be traveling distances with our luggage.I do have a couple questions:

1. If I buy online directly from Bahn, how long does it take to get to the United States and is the post pretty reliable? Am I taking my chances ordering directly from Bahn? Rail Europe just seemed so much more expensive.

2. Can the German Rail Pass be used between any two cities in Germany? Or or there cases where it is not valid (i.e. certain cities, certain regions)? I think I read I can also take it to Salzburg?

Any other information anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated. I normally just take an escorted tour (through Trafalgar or some other company) but decided on doing this on our own to give us the most flexibility. However, I do not want to drive and we are taking the train everywhere and I'm be a bit nervous (silly, isn't it?).

Thanks in advance for your help.
