When visiting a new city there's lots to do. To make sure that you don't spend your holiday studying fare tables, we have put together a list of the most important ticket for tourists. When starting out on your trip, remember to stamp your ticket in our buses and trams.



The tickets we have to suit you:

One-day pass

Want to escape the stress and tailbacks when travelling through Dresden? With the one-day bus and tram pass it's simple and cheap, and especially interesting for occasional travellers. The one-day ticket offers particular flexibility and spontaneity as you plan your day. It pays for itself from just the third trip you take and not only saves you the stress but is also easy on the pocket. Travel all day long, for example throughout Dresden's urban area, for just six euros.

One-day passes are for one adult and two children up to the age of 14. They can also be used as a ticket for three children up to the age of 14.

Combined ticket

With a combined ticket you can combine the advantages of cycling and public transport to best suit you. For one whole day you can use sz-bikes and our public transport vehicles as often as you like. Collect bikes from the pick-up points and leave them behind again as often as you like.

Use our tram, bus and ferry routes wherever and whenever you want. The combined ticket is valid on the DVB transport system until 4 a.m. the following morning, while sz-bikes can even be hired for 24 hours. You pay just 10 euros per person for one day of almost unlimited mobility, saving five euros compared with separate one-day passes.

The combined ticket can be used on all tram routes, the city bus routes and the ferries over the Elbe within the city. The sz-bikes can be taken on ferries. The ticket is not valid for S-Bahn city trains, local trains or regional bus routes.

Dresden Cards

Make the most of free trips on the city's buses, trams and S-Bahn trains, as well as free entry to twelve museums and discounts at more than 120 other tourist attractions.
