Is there a family discount on the German Rail Pass?
Yes, children aged 11 and under can travel for FREE when traveling with an accompanying adult. Children younger than 6 do not need a pass to travel. These age limits count for the first day of travel with the German Rail Pass, not for the day of ordering.
To buy a Child Pass, simply choose the 'Family' tab when buying a pass. Up to two children can travel for free with any one adult on a German Rail Pass. The adult can be anyone aged 18 or over traveling on an Adult Pass and doesn't have to be a family member. On crowded trains, parents may be requested to put the child on their lap. If you would like a seat for your child you must reserve it in advance.
