How much does my ticket cost?

Just enter the destination you want at the ticket machine (city, place) and choose your ticket. The price and the fare stage will then be displayed. You can pay at the ticket machine with notes and coins. At the red ticket machines you can also read the instructions in English, French, Italian, Spanish and Turkish.

You can also find out the price for the connection you want in the RNN timetable information under Fahrplanauskunft by clicking on the “€” symbol in the circle. The more zones (“cells”) = fare stages you travel through in the RNN area, the more it costs. You can see how many of these you need to travel through on the “RNN-Wabenplan” (map showing the fare zones).
