All you need to do there is:

Information about our tickets
How much a journey costs depends on how far and how often you travel and at which time of day you begin your journey. Children under the age of 6 travel free of charge when accompanied by an adult. There are KinderTickets for children aged 6 to 14 inclusive. You can buy almost all tickets directly from the bus driver when getting on the bus. Please have your change ready.

You don't travel regularly by bus or train? Then we recommend the following tickets:

EinzelTickets / single tickets
The EinzelTicket is worth it if you only make one journey a day. Return journeys and tours are thus not possible.
Further information in German

4er Tickets
The 4erTicket is flexible. You buy 4 journeys that you can use when you want. (Example: 4 journeys for 1 person or 2 journeys for 2 people). You save around 15% compared to an EinzelTicket.
You have to validate the 4erTicket on the edges before each journey. There are two fields for validation on the front on two fields on the back.

TagesTickets / day pass – after 9 am
