The first offer is a €35 one-way, second-class ticket valid for two people anywhere within the country. Passengers can use the ticket, called the Jubiläums-Ticket, between June 1 to June 30.
Single passengers will also be allowed to travel alone with the offer, which the company said would be available until supplies sold out.
A second offer called the Jubiläums-Pass 175 Stunden, or “Anniversary 175-hour pass,” will also be for sale as of Monday. The ticket is valid for seven days and seven hours for Germany’s entire rail network. Prices range from €175 for regular passengers, while those under the age of 27 pay €145.
A third offer called simply the Jubiläums-Pass, or “Anniversary pass,” is valid for an entire month of trips for €299, or €246 for those under 27.
Both passes can also be used on night trains with additional fees and are valid between June 13 and August 31, in addition to December 7 – the day the first Adler locomotive travelled between Nuremberg and Fürth.
Pass holders will also have free entry into the Deutsche Bahn museum in Nuremberg.
