It's been a long time since I used an InterRail pass, but in practice, the basic assumption is that your country of citizenship is your country of residence. If you think about it, there's no other feasible option: if Lukasz shows up in Germany and buys an IR pass with his Polish passport, there's no possible way for the DB ticket office, or any DB ticket ...

As you live and work in Germany (I assume you're in Germany for more than 180 days/year) you cannot use the InterRail pass in Germany.

If so, you can use your passport to the last day of its validity and in some cases you can travel home on an expired passport. As Relaxed mentions in the comments, ...

Your question is explicitly about BOARDING... They check your entitlement when you apply to get a pass. When boarding, they may check your travel report. If the travel report does not flush, they will be entitled to examine the supporting docs, and if those do not flush, you will be detained for fraud. They do not always check, but they will always ...

If you are an EU citizen and travelling within the EU, your soon-to-expire passport will be enough. If you are not an EU/EEA/Swiss citizen and travelling to the Schengen area, you do in fact need a passport whose validity extends at least three months after the end of your trip and your current passport is not enough. Those two simples rules cover about 30 ...
