The 9-euro ticket will be valid in Germany in June. Just in time to take the train to the sea. What are the options?
Kassel – That The 9-euro ticket for bus and train is expected to be available from June make it possible to travel throughout Germany with local public transport. While the federal government, states and transport operators are still preparing for the unique experiment, many in Germany are already considering how they can best use the offer. Since the ticket should come at the beginning of summer, it is not unreasonable to keep an eye out for routes to the sea, because you can also get to the German beaches with the regional train – with a little patience.
A popular destination for visitors to the Baltic Sea is the port city of Stralsund, on the southern outskirts of which is Deviner Strand. The 450 meter long beach promenade can be used free of charge and offers a view of the island of Rügen. With the regional train you can get there from Hamburg in about three and a half hours. It is even faster with the direct connection from Berlin. Travelers from the south, on the other hand, have to take on a longer odyssey. From Frankfurt and Munich, you can take the regional trains to Stralsund in 17 hours.
