How to use the NRW-Ticket

With your NRW-Ticket you´re allowed, using every public service vehicle like busses, subways, interurban-trains and trams in all cities in NRW! It´s also possible to take trains beginning with the letters RE or RB, followed by a number like for example the RE1 or RB48 (a list of all RE´s and RB´s is listed below). These trains are much faster than the usual urban railways and connect the different cities and areas in North Rhine-Westphalia.

Sightseeing in Paris

A trip to Paris is always a good idea. If you should decide to visit the „city of love“ there are a few sights you just can’t miss. Depending on what you want to see you will need more or less time. If you want to see all the presented sights below (or even more) you should at least stay for three days or longer. Even though the subway system called „Metro“ gets you nearly anywhere within a few minutes waiting lines for the most popular sights are sometimes very long.
