Sachen-Ticket

by Poroshin Online Now Mar 26, 2013 at 3:10 AM

Good day !

May I ask about Sachen-Ticket ? I have read that I can buy just one ticket and use it during a day in one land.
In my next trip I 'm going to visit Chemnitz from Dresden and then go to Liepzig in the same say. And I've bought Sachen-Ticket already. There is information about just Dresden or Chemnitz but Leipzig in this ticket.
Can I use it or not to get to Leipzig that day too? What was my mistake? What ticket should I bought?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

    You have done perfectly right. The Sachsen-Ticket is a day pass, so yes, you can use it to Leipzig as well if you continue on the same day.

    It's one of DB's secrets why these tickets have a connection printed on them, which is unnecessary and confusing as they are day passes and good for any local/regional train within the area and period of validity. The reason must be within their computer system. You can happily ignore that.

    Enjoy your stay in Sachsen! If you do happen to look for good value accommodation in a smaller town near Leipzig (Weissenfels), then I recommend: Weißenfels Hotel Tips by ATLC

    Poroshin,
    The Sachsen-Ticket is valid on all regional trains. I guess the connections printed on your tickets are suggestions but they are definitely not mandatory.

    The Sachsen-Ticket, as you probably know, is valid from 9am - 3am of the following day (Mo - Fr) or midnight to 3am of the following day (holidays + weekends) on regional trains - that is: no ICs ECs or ICEs! - and public transport in cities within Sachsen/Saxony. This, of course, includes Leipzig.

    May I suggest visiting Görlitz while you are in Sachsen?

    Of course, I knew that! I'm quite adult and even can read.  Why do they print SUCH tickets? They confuse people from other coгntries, don't they?

    Thank you for the answer&offer.  Next day after Chemnitz/Leipzig I'm going to fly away to Tenerife Island.

    This depends on the method you buy the ticket.

    If you buy a Sachsen-Ticket from at ticket machine or at the counter there won't be a connection on it.

    Same if you buy it online through the below page (-> Sachsen -> Book your Sachsen-Ticket)

    bahn.com/i/view/DEU/en/price...

    If you buy it through the DB timetable, i.e. out of a connection this connection will be shown on the ticket for your convenience. With a DB Online-Ticket printed on A4 paper the ticket as such needs only the upper third. Thus there is space below to print also the connection on the ticket. Apart from a few specials (Dauer-Spezial, Europa-Spezial) this connection is not binding. It's really just there for your convenience as DB thinks that this is the connection you want to use.

    Thanks for explanation. I am not going to judge the orders in the other country.
    Hope auditors in the train to Leipzig won't fine us :-(
