Semester Ticket

A semester fee of 375 Euros has to be paid upon enrolment and for each semester after (re-registration fee). This fee also includes the so-called semester ticket which is part of the semester fee and will be forwarded together with the registration certificates.

The semester ticket includes free-of-charge use of public transportation in Bremerhaven and Bremen as well as for the so-called VBN sector. Thus the ticket allows you to use all public transport for free within the entire area of "Verkehrsverbundes Bremen/Niedersachsen (VBN)" which translates to traffic cluster Bremen and Lower Saxony. This includes traveling by Regional-Express (RE), Regional-Bahn (RB) and InterRegio (IR). However, it does NOT include InterCity (IC), InterCity Express (ICE) or EuroCity (EC) trains. Please note that the ticket is valid for one semester and has to be used together with an official identification document with photo.

Additionally, the ticket is also valid for the local transport to Norddeich, Emden, Esens, Wilhelmshaven, Cuxhaven, Oldenburg as well as Hamburg, Hannover and Osnabrück, Münster, Kassel and even to Groningen in The Netherlands. By showing the semesterticket the students get a reduced fare in VBN PLUS minibustaxi. Moreover, the ticket is also valid for the rail lines of Metronom from Rotenburg (Wümme) to Hamburg-Altona and the rail lines of EVB from Frelsdorf to Buxetehude.
