FYI the pricing system for the Bayern Ticket is going to change on June 10th.

A 2nd class ticket will cost EUR 22 for a single traveller, and a further EUR 4 per additional traveller on the ticket, i.e. EUR 26 for 2 passengers, up to EUR 38 for 5 passengers.

The ticket allows your other passengers to join you on the train at different stations, but you have to buy the ticket for the maximum number of people travelling (i.e. you can't buy an extra EUR 4 ticket for a passenger who joins you later).

The pricing system is changing for the following as well:


  • 1st class Bayern Ticket: in future EUR 33 (single) - EUR 93 (5 people),
  • Bayern Nacht ticket: EUR 22 - EUR 30
  • Bayern-B√∂hmen ticket: EUR 25 - EUR 43

Effectively a 30% increase per person if you travel with 5 people. And then they wonder why people prefer to go by car.

Yeah but then I cant be pissed when I arrive in Munich.

You could, you just need one of the five to be the designated driver!

You know, Bavaria is kind of "family-friendly" state. So, again families will benefit from the changes, others not.

Five seats? You must have a posh life. My Yugo only has two seats. The back seat is filled with duct tape, plastic, wire hangers, beer, and other precious parts to keep my Yugo going.

Ah, what it is to be young.

So the new rules for the Bayern Ticket have now come into force. Information on the changes can be found in German here. In addition to the new pricing structure mentioned above, children under the age of 15 now travel for free, large dogs now count as an adult, and you can collect bahn.bonus points if you buy the ticket online.

I've updated the wiki page to reflect the new rules.

Changed this on the wiki page as it is a bit more complicated.

I have found another interesting anomoly between the Bayern Ticket rules and and the Bahn.de website.

The rules for Bayern Ticket clearly state that is valid on most busses (which, I assume, includes all of MVV).

However, on the Bahn.de website, when I look at a trip that includes a bus connection from Erding to Freising over the airport (all MVV) then it shows the Bayern Ticket price with the comment 'partial fare'.

Is this just another pricing error on the Bahn.de website or am I missing something?
yourkeau
bahn.de cannot show prices inside transport associations, you should check at MVV website. There should be cheaper options that buying Bayern ticket. But if not, it is valid on all MVV anyway.
Old_Erdinger
Within the MVV there are certainly cheaper options but this was a case of trip on DB (using a Bayern Ticket - in my case to Passau) that started with a bus trip from Erding to Freising to pick up the RE to Passau.

I am just a little surprised that, as bahn.de showed the bus connection in full detail (and they showed the Bayern Ticket price), they went to the trouble of indicating that the Bayern Ticket did not cover the full journey.

Monday morning at the DB:

Well hello good morning I am Mr Right Hand.

Well hello there as well I am Mr Left Hand.

Do you work here Righty?

All my life, and you Lefty?

Same. Which way you headed?

That way. And you?

Over there. See you around?

Dunno maybe.

Well indeed. The bus between Erding and the airport isn't in the DB system as accepting the Bayern Ticket. When you do some digging around you see that basically none of the buses are. The one between Freising and the airport is because that has always been an advertised route from the airport and DB tickets from Freising have always been valid from the airport on that bus route. Yet another example of "you just have to know".
