Tickets & Fares

Needless to say, you need a valid ticket in order to ride our trains.
You can either order one via our travel information and purchase it on or you visit one of our points of sale.

You can start out with us on the following tariffs:

  • Niedersachsentarif (i. e. Lower Saxony fare) on the entire route between Hamburg main station (Hbf) and Cuxhaven
  • Hamburger Verkehrsverbund (HVV) (Hamburg Public Transport Association) on the route from Hamburg main station to Himmelpforten
  • Deutsche Bahn including all offers
  • Semester tickets of participating universities
  • Holiday pass for pupils (Schülerferienticket) within the scope of validity


Provisions of the respective transport associations or tariff community apply.


The Niedersachsentarif is valid for trips outboard transport associations. You can use this tariff to travel through Lower Saxony. You can use busses and city trains at your original and final destination with any single or return ticket you purchase. This way you can use busses and trains in the city, travelling from the Elphi all the way to Kugelbake in Cuxhaven without any additional charges.

With the additional imprint on your ticket “und örtl. Nahverkehr“, which means public transport included, you can tell if your train ticket is also valid in the other city.

Children and families


In many cases, accompanied children travel free of charge. This is what makes us so appealing when it comes to travelling with children. Taking along children free of charge may change according to the tariff and offer used. You can find details directly under the following links: (under "tickets")

Holder of a disabled person's pass who have purchased a valid stamp at the social welfare office, can travel for free on the entire Start route network.
