Cheap to Hamburg. Free of charge in Hamburg. Travel relaxed and cheap with the Niedersachsen-Ticket.

When your next trip to Hamburg is coming up, you may ask yourself how you can get there the cheapest and easiest way. A good choice is the Niedersachsen-Ticket. Whether from Hanover, Osnabrück, Bremen or Braunschweig, you can use it to start in all cities in Lower Saxony and Bremen and use local public transport.

Which trains are these exactly? The Niedersachsen-Ticket is valid in RE, RB, S and RS of the Deutsche Bahn. It is also valid for journeys on trains of Metronom, Erixx and other local transport companies. It is not valid for long-distance journeys. The only exception is the IC between Bremen and Norddeich Mole/Emden Außenhafen, which you can only use on this route with the Niedersachsen-Ticket. The area of validity extends over the federal state of Lower Saxony as well as Hamburg and Bremen and also includes journeys from Münster (North Rhine-Westphalia) or Eichenberg (Hesse). The exact scope of validity and comprehensive information about the ticket can be found at

A popular route is the route from Bremen to Hamburg. The ticket can be bought online or in the app (DB Navigator or "FahrPlaner" app) and can already be used for the journey from the front door to the station with the VBN.

With the Niedersachen-Ticket you can travel - alone or with up to four passengers - comfortably on the well-equipped trains of the regional transport system. The price depends on the number of passengers. The Niedersachsen-Ticket costs 23 euros. For 5 euros each, up to four additional people can travel with you. If there are five people on the trip, each person pays only 8.60 euros. Children under 6 years and up to three children between 6 and 14 years travel free of charge.
