WelcomeKarte – for visitors

Tourists and day-trippers in Freiburg and cities without the KONUS Guest Card can spend their visit on the move: the WelcomeKarte is a combined ticket valid for 3 days on all buses, trams and trains across the RVF network, and the price includes use of the VAG Schauinsland cable car, Germany’s longest loop cable car. The WelcomeKarte also offers a €2 discount for the classic city and cathedral tours. Enjoy free travel on Freiburg’s trams for trips into the surrounding region or to Freiburg’s landmark mountain – also available for children and as a mobile ticket or online.
