Important information and frequently asked questions

After purchasing your Berlin WelcomeCard online, you will receive a voucher. Upon presentation of the voucher at one of the Berlin Tourist Information Offices at the Central Rail Station, the TV Tower, Europa Center, the Brandenburg Gate, on Kurfürstendamm or at Berlin's airports, you will receive your actual Berlin WelcomeCard and guide.

The Berlin WelcomeCard is also a transport pass and must first be validated by having it stamped in one of the machines available at bus stops or rail stations. This must be done before using on transport or claiming one of the discounts. The validity period of the Berlin WelcomeCard starts from the time stamped by the machine.

The Berlin WelcomeCard AB is only valid in transit zones A and B, which covers the entirety of Berlin's city limits. If you wish to travel to/from Schönefeld and Berlin Brandenburg International airports or want to visit Potsdam or other outlying towns, we recommend the Berlin WelcomeCard ABC.

Note: It is not possible to use the AB ticket in combination with a supplement for just zone C. We have created a list of frequently asked questions about the Berlin WelcomeCard.

The Berlin WelcomeCard AB is valid for one person (children under 6 years receive a free Berlin WelcomeCard); the Berlin Welcome Card ABC covers one adult and up to three children under 15 years.
New rules for accompanying children starting in 2016: up to 3 children ages 6 to 14 may travel with an adult with a Berlin WelcomeCard at no extra charge.
