Each a&o offers ticket service on-site and prior to arrival. This means that our staff can provide information about the city’s offerings, recommend activities, and handle the booking for you.

Groups like using this service very much, because it’s a one-stop-shop for everything . Group leaders can be provided with maps and other services in the hotel;  simpler and faster than organizing it themselves.

  • Tickets for Bus and Train

  • Bicycle Rental at the Hotel

Tickets for Bus and Train

In our "Local Support" Division, we have researched the cost of public transportion in each a&o City for you, and make the links available. You can find the information for "Public transport" here.

Of course, we also can provide this information locally. Please ask at the reception desk.

Bicycle Rental at the Hotel

At many a&o locations, groups can explore the city bicycle, renting directly at the hotel.

Renting is easy:

•   Give the number of bikes required and the desired date(s) at the front desk or during group reservations
•   Pay the daily rate on site
•   Leave a deposit....done!

In some houses the front desk will make a copy of the ID card or passport of the group leader and ask for a form to be completed for liability claims if damage occurs. Please ensure that your students have health insurance in the unlikely event of an accident.

In cities without an on-site bicycle rental, fortunately there are inexpensive alternatives. For example, in Hamburg there is the “City Bike“.  A one-time registration fee of 5 Euro, which also gives your 5 Euro credit, gives riders the full bike experience. Similarly, the cities of Karlsruhe, Cologne, Leipzig, and Munich have bike rental offers directly at the main train station, all of which are very close to a&o.
