First of all, I apologize if I am beating a dead horse. I know this has been covered before but there are so many different responses that I am hoping to consolidate my questions. We are traveling primarily within Baden-Württemberg. I have loaded the app for the Deutsche-Bahn site and believe I have that somewhat figured out. My confusion seems to be primarily when we are in the Stuttgart area.
We are staying in Esslingen for 4 nights and plan on spending a few days in Stuttgart and a few in the surrounding area. I’ve loaded the VVS app down and think I’ve got that figured out. My first question relates to the 3-day VVS pass if you are staying in the Stuttgart area. I understand you need to provide the hotel you are staying at. Is this only available within Stuttgart’s city limits or would Esslingen count. And if so, we are staying in an AirBNB, would we provide the email confirmation of our booking (I only have directions at this time, no specific address).
My next question regards a reference to “metropolticket”. I don’t see this mentioned on the VVS site (English) so am not sure where this would be purchased. We do plan a trip to Tuebingen as well as other places in that area. It sounds as if this would be the most reasonable ticket to purchase for these locations. Is this correct or would the Baden-Württemberg daily pass ticket be cheaper?
And finally (I think), I’ve seen the Lander ticket - what would be the advantage of that over other tickets.
Thanks in advance for your help as well as thank you for all the ideas of things to see & do in the area.
