Good day !
May I ask about Sachen-Ticket ? I have read that I can buy just one ticket and use it during a day in one land.
In my next trip I 'm going to visit Chemnitz from Dresden and then go to Liepzig in the same say. And I've bought Sachen-Ticket already. There is information about just Dresden or Chemnitz but Leipzig in this ticket.
Can I use it or not to get to Leipzig that day too? What was my mistake? What ticket should I bought?
Thanks in advance for your reply.
Thank you very much, Kathrin !
I've bought it and was afraid a little. That ticket has even set of trains that I should use..And what will be if I get another train like that written ?
I am grateful to you for your permission and an explanation.
Hard to live so stupid...:-))), sorry..
Enjoy your stay in Sachsen! If you do happen to look for good value accommodation in a smaller town near Leipzig (Weissenfels), then I recommend: [original VT link]
The Sachsen-Ticket is valid on all regional trains. I guess the connections printed on your tickets are suggestions but they are definitely not mandatory.
The Sachsen-Ticket, as you probably know, is valid from 9am - 3am of the following day (Mo - Fr) or midnight to 3am of the following day (holidays + weekends) on regional trains - that is: no ICs ECs or ICEs! - and public transport in cities within Sachsen/Saxony. This, of course, includes Leipzig.
May I suggest visiting Görlitz while you are in Sachsen?

This depends on the method you buy the ticket.
If you buy a Sachsen-Ticket from at ticket machine or at the counter there won't be a connection on it.
Same if you buy it online through the below page (-> Sachsen -> Book your Sachsen-Ticket)
If you buy it through the DB timetable, i.e. out of a connection this connection will be shown on the ticket for your convenience. With a DB Online-Ticket printed on A4 paper the ticket as such needs only the upper third. Thus there is space below to print also the connection on the ticket. Apart from a few specials (Dauer-Spezial, Europa-Spezial) this connection is not binding. It's really just there for your convenience as DB thinks that this is the connection you want to use.
Thanks for explanation. I am not going to judge the orders in the other country.
Hope auditors in the train to Leipzig won't fine us :-(
Thank you for your answer! i've visited Germany, I 've used regional ticket,You helped me by your answer. Thank you.
