The Eifel National Park Adventure Region Guest pass
As a guest at participating accommodation businesses you will receive a free guest pass for the duration of your stay. This enables you to use the buses and trains of the public transport companies Rhein-Sieg (VRS) and Aachen (AAV) free of charge in the Adventure Region and all other transport zones.
If you book early you will receive the guest pass before your stay and you can then use it for your journey to your destination within the VRS and AAV zones. In addition to free public transport (ÖPNV) you can also save money with reduced admission at the participating sightseeing destinations with your guest pass.
