Travelling by train in Germany

I know that children travel free with a parent's train ticket, but I am just wondering if I buy a German rail pass, then do the children still travel free, or must I buy a half-price youth rail pass for each of them. They are 9 and 11 years old. Thanks

Railpass for children
by: Rita

Hi Steve,

Children from age 6 to 14 travel free when accompanied by a parent or grand-parent. They must be registered on the train ticket of the adult.
If children of this age group travel alone, they need to have a ticket which costs 50% of an adult ticket for the journey.

When parents use a German Rail Pass, two children aged 6 to 11 years per adult can travel for free. Older kids need a youth pass, which valid between the age of 12 and 27.

Children up to five years travel always free and don't need a train ticket at all.
