Help with Offenburg-Strasbourg-Ringsheim rail tickets, please

Jump to last reply

Hello and thanks in advance for your help.

We are a family of four (two parents, two teens), and during our upcoming trip to Germany we're planning a split day from Frankfurt: we'll travel together to Offenburg, but husband and I will go on to Strasbourg while the teens will go on to Europa-Park. I'm trying to do this as cost-effectively as possible (but still taking an ICE train from Frankfurt Hbf to Offenburg).

I'm thinking that the best way to do this is to order Sparpreis round-trip fares from Frankfurt to Offenburg, right?

But then what about the teens' fares to Europa-Park...would it make sense to get a regional pass for them rather than try to buy tickets online (which Bahn.de doesn't seem to want to let me do anyhow, because they'll all be regional trains)? There is a Baden-Wuerttemberg one-day regional pass, correct? Would that cover the bus from Ringsheim to the park entrance as well? We're trying to pre-arrange as much as possible to save time on the day of.

I *think* things are easier for husband and me...we can buy round-trip tickets to Strasbourg at the Offenburg station, correct? That's a shorter trip so the difference of ordering in advance would be much less, yes?

Also, is there a place online where I can find out what regional fares are? When the travel is all within one region I get an error message that fares are not available.

Thanks for your help!
