DB ICE Trains Children's Tickets

Hi all,

There will be 6 of us traveling in August (4 adults + 2 kids ages 3 & 1) and I am wanting to know if I need to include the kids on the ticket. I realise the kids will travel free but do I have read they still need to be accounted for on the ticket however, DB website only allows a maximum of 5 people before it moves to group bookings.

So, I was thinking of purchasing a ticket for 5 people and selecting the Family Compartment? Will this be ok even though there will be 6 of us?

I've scoured the DB website and Google looking for the answer but have come up empty handed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks again!

In Germany, kids under age 6 don't require a ticket to travel for free with you. In a crowded train, they'd be expected to sit on your lap. (Ages vary in other countries but usually under age 4 does not need a ticket.)
