On 27 June, Deutsche Bahn began celebrating the 175th anniversary of the first railway in Germany. On the occasion of the jubilee year, DB is organising a programme of events which will tour the country, with the public invited to join in the festivities. A discounted rail pass valid for travel within Germany – “DB on Tour” – is also on offer. Between June and November celebrations will be held in the railway stations of 16 cities, and will include music, games, raffles and information stands, etc.

In a statement, DB AG CEO Dr. Rüdiger Grube said: “For 175 years the railways have brought people closer together. Therefore in this jubilee year we invite everybody to come and celebrate with us in railway stations.” (Source: DB)
