General information

A great day out

The zoo, a theme park, a museum or on an adventure ...? It is easy and enjoyable to get there by train. Buy a B-Excursion ticket, hop on the train and in no time you are looking at wild animals or entering your favourite attraction. Easy, right? It's really good value for money and no hassle, only fun.

A smart and economical option

The B-Excursion ticket combines a 2nd class return journey, a bus, tram or metro connection if necessary and admission to the attraction. As you are buying an all-in-one ticket, you will receive a discount for each part of the trip. So it really is a smart and economical option! Do you like to travel in comfort? You can buy a 1st class B-Excursion ticket or upgrade your existing 2nd class one.

Where and when can I buy a B-Excursion ticket?

B-Excursion tickets are for sale at the ticket office or ticket machines in the train station from 31 days before your trip right up until the day of your trip, unless reservation is required. Some B-Excursion tickets are also available online.
