Tickets can be purchased at machines or ticket offices, through the DB Navigator app, or through the Deutsche Bahn website. The pass is valid for one month. That is, if you purchase a ticket on July 17, you should expect it to be valid until July 31, not August 17. You must also have ID documents with you because tickets in Germany are personal. The 9-euro pass deal will be available only until September.
