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.
You can reach every destination in North Rhine-Westphalia by public transportation. Especially in the Ruhrgebiet the railway network is very dense. But be aware that the “Deutsche Bahn” is usually late. So if you have appointments, plan some extra time for travelling.
Germany is a country, which is still dominated by cash payments. You will be able to pay cash in all shops or ticket machines. You find ATMs in all main train stations and all airports and in all branch banks, which are spread around the city.
In Germany there are a lot of different supermarket chains. Some of them offer high quality products for higher prices, others operate as discounters. The latter, of course, is more attractive for students who usually do not have large amounts of money to spend on groceries.
