    Maastricht would be the most interesting choice in my view
    vvv-maastricht.eu/vvv_maastr...
    It's also the closest Dutch city to Bonn. Shortly after Aachen (which is also worth a visit).
    http://www.aachen.de

    regional train network North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW)
    avv.de/web/download/netz/nrw...
    public transport network Euregio Maas-Rhine
    avv.de/web/download/netz/emr...
    From Aachen there is also an express bus (#420) to Maastricht. You can buy a day ticket for this region (plays no role if you take the bus or train to Maastricht)
    avv.de/web/hauptdrei/euregio...


    Good thing: There is a day ticket covering all local public transport in the state NRW. SchönerTagTicket NRW (HappyDayTicket NRW). EUR 23,50 for 1 person. EUR 33,00 for 2-5 persons.
    Restrictions:
    a) regional trains only
    which makes the trip to the NRW/Dutch border even more time consuming, i.e. a day trip less worthwhile.
    b) validity
    Mo-Fr: from 9am till 3am next day
    Sa,So: from midnight till 3am next day

    Hello!

    Is it a better idea to get a Grman rail pass than to get a EURAIL pass? How is it to travel by the Autobahns?

    Thank you,

    Saudamini
