Is there a child discount on the German Rail Pass?

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. Children who are already 12 or older when they start traveling are not able to travel with a Child Pass anymore. 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.

If more than two children are traveling with one adult, an additional Youth Pass will need to be purchased per child.

For travelers under 26 we offer the youth German Rail Pass, available to purchase in either 1st or 2nd class..
