Purchasing Train Tickets in Germany, Rail Passes and Boat Timetables

Jump to last reply

I've done the math and decided that its not worth it for me to buy a German rail pass during my three days of daytripping from Frankfurt while OH works (we have transportation worked out for the other parts of my trip).

That being said, I'm also hesitant to buy my tickets in advance - well, we leave in just over a week, so its not even that 'advanced' a purchase. While I'm fairly confident of the times I'll leave in the mornings to head out, I don't want to be pigeon-holed into a return time, in case I am loving/tired of what I am seeing. When I look at the DB web site, though, it doesn't appear as if you save anything buying two singles vs. one return ticket - is that correct? Other than having to buy tickets twice?

Also - if I were to get a railpass, am I reading things correctly that I could just buy one in Germany once I land? Its too late for them to mail it to me. It looks as if my point-to-point tickets would be about 40 euros less than a three day rail pass, but I'd get a discount on the KD Rhine boat with the rail pass, and there is some value in having a pass and not dealing with tickets at all. But I may have missed the (Rhine) boat on the rail pass, so maybe that is moot.

Finally, I don't speak German and the KD boats schedule is difficult to understand IMO. I'd love someone's expertise in how it runs to confirm that the red columns going from Mainz to Cologne at the top right is running the schedule in the column that starts in Mainz at 9.30, going to Boppard at 13.50. It has a header which says "daily Jul-Aug" and then underneath that says "1.9-3.10" and underneath that "Fri-Mon." I would take that to mean that those on July, August and September 1-October 3, they have an extra boat running on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. Am I reading that correctly? I find it odd it doesn't just say July 1 - October 3, though, which is whay I'm nervous. And I need that boat to be running on Monday, September 26.

Thanks in advance!
