German Rail Twin Pass or Bahn 50 Card?

Jump to last reply

In reading about the different German rail passes I am confused. My husband & I are beginning a riverboat cruise in Bamberg. We will have 3 days before and 3 days after to travel around some. We are both over 60. I think the Bahn 50 card which is about 247 Euros for the 2 of us according to the bahn/de website would be applicable without any restrictions...but I'm not sure? On the other hand the German Rail Twin Pass for 323 Euros seems also to be applicable. I probably missed something in reading about the tickets, because I didn't see the difference in the 2 passes except the price. There must be something, because why would travelers buy the German Rail Twin Pass with the Bahn 50 so much less expensive? This is what I am thinking about doing. We are early risers & I figure we may not get back to this area. We would like to see the towns/cities & stroll around. We have seen enough museums of all kinds over the years, so taking those in is not a priority. We plan to take city tours if they fit into our day, if available. I know it sounds like a lot, but most of the towns/cities on each end are fairly close to each other. This plan after debarkation in Trier is not set in stone.

MUC airport to Regensberg.
Next day Regensberg to Passau
Couple of days later Regensberg to Nuremberg to Swabisch-Hall to Nuremberg
Then Nuremberg to Bamburg.

Riverboat to Trier.
Trier to Luxembourg - hopefully
Luxembourg to Cologne
From Cologne day trip to Dusseldorf, Aachen , then to hotel in FRA
FRA to Bonn & back to FRA hotel

In all, we would be using the trains 8 days during a 2 week period, one week of which we'll be on the cruise.

Thank you for your input.
