Is there a family discount on the German Rail Pass?
Yes, children aged 0-11 travel for free with German Rail Pass. A maximum of two children can travel for free with one adult.
Children under 6 don't need a German Rail Pass. 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. Children aged 6-11 need a free Child Pass, which you can find under the tab 'Family' in all pass tables.
To order a free child pass, it's necessary to add at least one adult pass to the shopping cart. Go to the tab 'Family' in the pass table to select your adult passes and child passes.
