Hi @ all -- 

I have a question about the ID document for the mobile Interrail pass. Following situation:

I have a Swiss residence permit (Swiss residence ID) and I am a German citizen (German ID card, no first or second residence address on the ID). Swiss residence ID contains information about my name, birth date, has a passport photo, a specific ID identification number and contains biometric data. My question is: Which ID document do I link to my mobile Interrail pass? German ID or Swiss residence ID?

Thanks for your help!

It's strange that the swiss residence permit would be called an ID. A residence permit is normally not an ID, it only proves where you live and is only valid together with an ID (ID card or passport). An ID is normally issued by the country of which you have the nationality. So if you only have German nationality, then you need to use your German ID card or passport  for your Interrail.
