The KONUS-Guest Card

KONUS Guest Card: Busses and Trains free of charge

Experience the Black Forest by public transportation for free - from January 2005 your vacation in many cities and municipalities of the Black Forest has an additional sensational advantage - with the KONUS Guest Card you can use selected public transportation free of charge!

 

Where is the KONUS Card valid?

 

You can profit from the KONUS Card on busses and trains of a lot of Public Traffic Organisations in the Black Forest.

High Speed Trains (IC and ICE) and aerial tramways are excluded.

The KONUS Guest Card is valid from Basel to Strasbourg, from Waldshut Tiengen to Freiburg, Villingen Schwenningen, Rottweil and Offenburg.

In many cases you'll receive your KONUS Guest Card by registrating in your host. The charge is included in the regular touristic tax.

In order to reduce traffic and make public transportation even more attractive, the internal charge of tourism offices and transportation organisations is only 21 cent per guest and day. By the way - the more you use it, the merrier it is - for you, and most of all, for the environment.
