Term Definition

This is useful for those using public transport as it entitles you to travel on all local busses and trains.

A Semesterticket costs 89 Euros and is valid for six months. It is only issued upon showing your enrolment certificate (Immatrikulationsbescheinigung) or valid student ID. This implies that you must make sure to register at the University of Freiburg on time.You can purchase the ticket also online .

Note that you are allowed to use public transportation (RVF, not Deutsche Bahn!) between 7:30 pm and 3:00 am free of charge provided you have a valid uni card.
