Can we take bikes on a train or bus from Rothenburg to Dinkelsbuhl?

by cklarich123

My fiance and I are biking parts of the Romantic Road in August. Due to limted time, we have to take the train or bus through some parts of the route. I was searching for a train timetable to take a train from Rothenburg to Dinkelsbuhl with our bikes, but there seem to be no trains that take that route. I am missing something? Are there busses? Can we bring 2 bikes on a bus (is there bike storage on the busses)?

Hi there,
no, You haven't missed something - there is no train running Rothenburg - Dinkelsb├╝hl. Also, YOu can't take a bike into a bus. You can go to Ansbach by train, but that won't help You a lot. But - it is less than 50 km way to go, so You can do this in 3 - 4 hours. Perhaps You can scip annother place for this.

They write that you can bring bicycles on all types of local transport inside the VGN (the local public transport network of this region).

- It must be technically possible (e.g. not on Reisebusse (~ overland buses) or Anrufsammeltaxen (mini taxis running on call)).
comment: With Linienbusse (normally scheduled public-transit buses) it should however work.
- There must be approriate storage place and this place must not be used otherwise.
- On peak times bicycle transport won't work mostly (i.e. passengers using the "storage place" while standing have a higher priority).
- You don't have a guaranteed right on bicycle transport.

You can't get to there from here in Germany. Especially when it comes to the train. But you might consider an alternative route - Rothenburg o.d. Tauber to Wuerzburg and then to Dinkelsbuehl. Or better yet, skip Dinkelsbuehl altogether, and visit (in my opinion) one of the most interesting cities in Franconia, Wuerzburg. There is much more to see there, anyway.

Taking your bikes on buses is theoretically possible, like the person above mentioned, but impractical. If you want more detailed information about train travel, please refer to my page on Germany under the transport tab.

Travel Tips for Rothenburg ob der Tauber

City Wall and Galgentor

by CandS

This is the Rothenburg City Wall and Galgentor (one of the towers on the wall)... You can walk along the top of the wall in some parts and you will get a fantastic view of the city from up there... :)


by LoriPori

Built during the height of Rothenburg's Gothic period, ST. JAKOB'S CHURCH or JAKOBSKIRCHE, took over 170 years to complete (1311 - 1484 ). The Protestant Church's greatest artistic treasure is the Altar of the Holy Blood or Heiligblutaltar, carved by Tilmann Riemenschneider between 1499 and 1505. The Altar gets its name from the rock crystal capsule mounted in the Gold Cross set in the Altar. Since the Middle Ages, the capsule is said to contain three drops of Christ's Blood.

transportation of prisoners in the old times

by globetrott

Before you enter the medieval crime-museum "Mittelalterliches Kriminalmuseum" you may see this special wagon in front of the house : It was used for the transportation of prisoners in the old times. I remember to have seen such a wagon in spooky old movies , but to see it in Rothenburg was even more impressive.
These wagons may be seen without the need to get inside of the museum !

Getting around...

by CandS

Once you are at Rothenburg you can walk everywhere. The tour guide that took us around walked very fast too so be ready for it! ;)

You won't have any problems getting around on foot and you will see a lot more that way also.

The Franconian Outdoor Museum

by Maria250

The Franconian Outdoor Museum is located in Bad Windsheim in Germany's Middle Franconia. This absolutely awesome outdoor museum displays the way hop-growing farmers lived (and survived) back in the 19th century. This and so much more of their customs and traditions are presented here at this great & authentic place which truly brings farm life to your heart!
