The buses and trains within our region operate with good frequency. For those who use the public transport every day, I recommend to buy the full time semester ticket. Make use of the semester ticket to travel and explore new places all over the VGN area. For travel outside this area, always check for discount tickets on the website of Deutsche Bahn. It is always possible to find time to travel, not only during the holidays but also during the semester. Flight tickets to destinations across Europe can be bought for as cheap as 10 euros, thanks to those commercial airlines.
