Travelling by train in Bavaria - Bayernticket

by Daniela

Neuschwanstein Castle Bavaria

Neuschwanstein Castle Bavaria

We shall be in Munich in December 2011 and will travel by train. We want to go to Neuschwanstein, Zugspitze and Salzburg.

When at Neuschwanstein Castle we wish to go to Oberammergau too.

We are two adults and an 8 year old child. How do we go about it? I read that going during weekend with a Bayern ticket is cheaper but how do I get from Castle to Oberammergau?

And what is best to have tickets in hand before we travel or buy tickets at Munich Central Station once we arrive?

Please help

Get around in Bavaria - Bayernticket

Hi Daniela,

The Bayern-Ticket is available daily, you need a new ticket every day.
From Monday to Friday you can use it from 9am, while on the weekends it can be used from midnight. The ticket is always valid until 3am the next day.

Like all Ländertickets, the Bayernticket is not valid on ICE/IC trains, but on all regional trains, buses, and trams within Munich. So it can be used travelling from your hotel to the train station, as well.

There is no need to buy the ticket in advance, you get it at ticket counters in train stations and ticket machines. I am pretty sure that bus drivers sell them as well.
However, when you buy it from a person, it costs 2 Euro more.

You can go from Munich to Fussen or Hohenschwangau by train and bus.
There is a bus service from Hohenschwangau / Füssen to Oberammergau, and a connection from Oberammergau to Garmisch Partenkirchen and the Zugspitze by bus and cog railway.

The easiest way to get to Salzburg by public transport is from Munich, but it is also possible from Garmisch. Check the DB website to find the best connections.

Of course, there are also guided tours available from Munich. Check them out on my Munich attractions page.

Happy travels,
