No additional ticket required: Traveling in the GVH with the DB City ticket

If you have a "Super Sparpreis-" "Sparpreis-" or "Flexpreisticket"on DB long-distance services, in most cases you need no additional ticket for the journey from the destination station to your final destination or for your journey to the departure station. 

In the GVH, you can use public transport free of charge in Zone A for train journeys to or from stations in the city of Hanover.

You can get the City ticket:

  • For DB long-distance journeys with an IC, EC or ICE
  • If you have a DB ticket as "Super Sparpreis", Sparpreis" or "Flexpreis" you can get the DB-City ticket. It is a free add-on for "Flexpreis" tickets and an additional charge for "Sparprice" tickets, depending on the connection selected.

The City ticket is valid:

  • For travelling by public transport to the station at the point of departure or for onward travel by public transport to the destination. In the GVH, all buses and trains can be used in zone A.
  • For one journey to the starting station and one from the station to the destination
  • From the first day of validity of the ticket until the close of operations at the "City- Return"-Day (maximum 05:00 a.m. of the following day)
  • For all passengers who are registered on the ticket

If you like to extend the City ticket, you just need a ticket for one zone (B) or two zones (BC). Depending on how far the journey goes. An overview of our routings is available here (available in German only).

  • The City ticket is already included in the "DB Flexpreistickets".
  • In the DB saver fares, the City Ticket must be booked in addition depending on the selected connection.

  • You can identify the City ticket due to the notation "+City" on the ticket.
