You need to specify the number of your destination which is a 3 digit code found on the lists at the blue automates. Your destination is "Kurort Rathen". The prize of a single ticket is 5,10- €. Note that your ticket is only valid when being stamped at one of the red automates which can be found at each terminal.

You can also park your car in Oberrathen (left river side) and take the ferry for crossing the Elbe river. However, you will have to pay for this option.
