match / train tickets.

Any help most welcome.

Have got my hands on two tickets for Monchengladbach home game next weekend. We are staying in Duisburg and travelling up on the train on the day of the game. I have just been on Monchengladbach web site to get info on getting to the arena from the main station. I knew that the match ticket covers public transport, but how local ? I assumed that local transport is in Monchengladbach only and does not cover the train from Duisburg to Monchengladbach. Am I correct ? One other thing. D.Bahn web site will not give prices for the train trip. Anyone got any idea of cost of the return trip or is their a day ticket we can buy ? Many thanks for your help.

Supervanman.

The match tickets covers local public transport inside the VRR area. Mönchengladbach and Duisburg are both inside the VRR. VRR area is quite big with some 7,2 million people living inside it. Covered are regional trains, S-Bahn trains, trams and buses.

DB timetable

http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en

From: Duisburg

To: Veltins-Arena

and select as means of transport "only local transport".

DB timetable gives only prices if the DB tariff applies. Not for trips where the VRR tariff applies, i.e. exactly not for the trips covered by the match tickets.

You could get prices if you use the timetable on the VRR site, but the DB timetable is easier to use.
