Willkommen in Deutschland
Welcome to Germany
From April 01, 2010 you can buy
(Day Pass for the State of Mecklenburg-Western Pommerania)
(Day Pass for the States of Brandenburg and Berlin)
(Day Pass for the State of Schleswig-Holstein)
You can pre-buy the ticket in English with your credit-card and make a print-out from your computer at home. You do not need to queue up and wait until other cruisers found out how to buy the ticket and you miss the train.
So you just leave your ship and board the train.
All you need is the print-out and a credit card for proper identification.
no change - no refund - but even you buy it at the train station at the machine or with the counter - but you have more time to think about if you go or not (wheater... personal condition).
BUT IF YOU ARE SURE THAT YOU WILL GO YOU SHOULD DO IT NOW.
You start here with your booking:
YOU CAN CLICK ON ALL PICTURES TO ENLARGE!!!
