Need input on German rail passes

Jump to last reply

DH and I will be in Germany in December and will be taking several train trips. I've researched on www.bahn.com until I'm nearly blind and here's what I've come up with so far. I would appreciate your input on (1)what I think is the most economical way to go and (2) whether I've interpreted the website/pricing/scheduling correctly. I know this is a lot to ask.

2 Quer-durchs-Land Tickets @ 50 euro for 2 people = 100 euro
2nd class, regional trains only, good M-F only
These tickets will take us Frankfurt-Nuremburg and Nuremburg-Frankfurt, beginning and end of trip, both trips mid-week

3 Bavaria tickets (each ticket is for 2 people) @ 26 euro per day = 78 euro
9a.m. - 3 a.m. weekdays plus all day Sat, Sun, holidays
regional trains only plus city transport
I understand that one ticket can be used for any number of trips on any one day so that
these tickets will cover:
Nuremburg-Regensburg-Nuremburg (day 1)
Nuremburg-Bamburg -Nuremburg (day 2)
Nuremburg-Munich-Nuremburg (day 3)

Total expense for 2 people - 178 euro

Contrast with:
A German Rail Twin Pass - 5 days - 2nd class, good on all trains = 323 euro

Have I interpreted the pricing correctly? If so, the first option costs 145 euro less than the German Rail Twin Pass. Thanks so much for your input.
Kay
