Can anyone tell me if a Laender ticket will get me on a day trip from Hannover to Quedlinburg and return. Many thanks.

    No, because Hannover is in Lower Saxony and Quedlinburg is in Saxony-Anhalt. Validity of the Niedersachsen-Ticket ends in Bad Harzburg. You need either a Quer-durchs-Land-Ticket (if it's a weekday) or a Schönes Wochenende-Ticket (if it's Saturday or Sunday), or standard fare.

    No. Hannover is in Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony), Quedlinburg in Sachsen-Anhalt. The Harz Mountains are the border between both states. You can reach Goslar on the west side of the Harz on a Niedersachsen-Ticket.

    To Quedlinburg using regional trains you could use
    a) on a Saturday or Sunday a Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket. EUR 39 for up to 5 persons traveling together
    b) on a weekday past 9am a Quer-durchs-Land-Ticket. EUR 42 for 1 person. EUR 6 more each for any further person (up to 5 persons in total). There is a connection at 08:55, the next one is only at 10:55. Thus buy additionally a ticket from Hannover to Sarstedt, the first stop past 9am and use the 08:55 connection. EUR 3,70.

    DB timetable
    reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/qu...
    Start: Hannover
    Destination: Quedlinburg
    and select as means of transport "only local transport" if you want to use the options a) or b).
