Hochschule für Musik

The SemesterTicket is valid for 6 months and allows students to freely travel in Freiburg and the surroundings regions – Emmendingen and Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald, as well as for trips to Titisee, Schluchtsee, Feldberg or Kaiserstuhl. All RVF public buses, city and regional trains can be used in the second class.
Students at the university, Musikhochschule Freiburg and the PH Freiburg can buy the SemesterTicket online as of now. Please follow the link http://www.vag-onlineticket.de/
SemesterTickets that have been purchased online can be shown using the RVF apps (Fahrplan+) and VAG (VAGmobil). A print out is not required.
22 euros from the 78 Euro fee that students at these higher education institutions pay to the Studierendenwerk go to the Regio-Verkehrsverbund Freiburg (RVF) as a basic contribution towards the Semester Ticket. This payment is what makes the SemesterTicket so inexpensive. The SemesterTicket is not transferable and is only valid when shown with valid student ID.
All students attending the above mentioned higher education institutions are eligible to travel for free on RVF buses and trains in the evenings, with valid Student ID. This offer takes effect daily from 19:00 until end of service.
Students on leave are not eligible for a SemesterTicket.
