    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi Mary,<br /><br />For the itinerary you laid out, you can purchase either a rail pass or regular point-to-point tickets, as the costs would be comparable.<br /><br />Conveniently, none of the trains that make up your itinerary require reservations, so you can purchase the rail pass and then not be confined to any specific trains. For travel in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/germany/index.html" rel="nofollow">Germany</a>, you would purchase the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/german-rail-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">German Rail Pass</a>.

For the purpose of just viewing schedules, you would have to be sure the 'No' option is checked where it asks you 'Are you traveling with a rail pass?'
