    Hi Mandy,

    In Berlin, there are only two S-Bahn routes that would be covered with a German Rail Pass.

    The S-Bahn lines in Berlin that are covered are:

    1.) The main S-Bahn lines that cut east-west across the city along the corridor between the Zoologischer Garten station, the Hbf (Hauptbahnhof) station, the Friedrichstrasse station, the Ostbahnhof station, and the Lichtenberg station. This includes S5, S7, and S75, but only between Zoologischer Garten and Lichtenberg.

    2.) The S-Bahn lines that run north-south between the Gesundbrunnen and the Südkreuz station. These lines intersect with the east-west line mentioned above at Friedrichstrasse. These lines include S2, S25, and S1 (though S1 doesn't go all the way to Südkreuz, so it would only be valid up to Friedrichstrasse). On these lines, the pass would not be valid to any stop north of Gesundbrunnen and any stop south of Südkreuz.

    The S-Bahn lines throughout Berlin that feed into the lines mentioned above are the ones that would not be covered with a rail pass. With that said, there are regional trains that run along these same routes, which would be covered by a rail pass.

    Hi Mandy,

    Yes, actually a rail pass would be valid on S-Bahn trains throughout the rest of Germany, including in Frankfurt. The only restrictions with the S-Bahn are in Berlin.
