getting to Salzburg, Austria, from Rothenburg o.d.T.

by Nui-tutu

We have been trying to find the best way to get from Rothenburg ob der Tauber to Salzburg on Wednesday 10 October 2007. We are open to trains, planes, boats, hydrofoils, buses and rented cars. It seems it will take many connections regardless of what combination of transport modes we choose, so I am wondering what you might suggest.

Thanks in advance!

Rothenburg is on a branch line and Munich Hbf is a terminal station.

Cheapest would be to use regional trains:

DB timetable
http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en
From: Rothenburg ob der Tauber Bahnhof
To: Salzburg
and select as means of transport "only local transport".
Than you could use the Bavaria Ticket for this trip. EUR 27,00 for 2-5 persons.
A day ticket covering all regional trains in Bavaria plus to/from Salzburg Hbf.
On a Wednesday the Bavaria Ticket is valid from 9am till 3am Thursday.

I looked at the Deutsche Bahn website, ,least number of changes is 2, dep R,burg at 1106 to Steinach, change and then to Munich Ost, change to Salzburg. At present the Sparpreis is E29 instead of the usual E61 so I,d book now if I were you and print off the ticket on your printer. (There are earlier trains but then 3 changes involved which is a nuisance with luggage.) Just remember that you must produce this printout and the credit card you used on the train, there will be a squiggly pattern on the printout which the conductor will scan with a little machine and he will also want to see the credit card.
To do all this go into the Deutsche Bahn website, click on international guests for the info in English, then follow the prompts, remember to select the correct Rothenburg on the dropdown menu.

Hadn,t noticed the previous reply but it,s true, if you are happy to change 3 times the Bavaria ticket would work out a lot cheaper. Sorry!

With a Eurail global saver pass, we should be able to take the 2-change trains for not much extra money. Right? We'll take your advice and get reservations. Thanks again!

The Bavaria ticket would cost a total of E27 for 2 whereas the cheaper ticket I mentioned wil be E56 for the 2 of you, but the Bavaria ticket will mean 3 changes. The time for the journey is much the same so if you don,t mind changing perhaps go the Bavaria ticket.
Usually using an IC means a much shorter trip but not in this instance. It looked like 5 - 6 hours in total regardless of which option you took.

Without any extra money.
You can reserve seats (EUR 3,50) online through the DB timetable. But this is only possible for the parts with far distance trains (IC/EC or ICE) on your route. No seat reservations with regional trains.

Travel Tips for Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Night watchman Tour

by chuying

A very entertaining walking tour led by medieval "night watchman". He was fun and very informative. You will learn more history of this thousand years old town. No need to book the tour ahead, in winter they've only 1 session (8pm) but summer may have one in the afternoon. Just meet at the Town Hall Square, he will pop out at the tour time and be ready to take picture with him. We weren't dressed for the freezing weather during the night tour (-10 DC), so it was a very cold cobblestone walk. It would be more fun if you go in a warmer night.

KOBOLZELLER TOWER

by LoriPori

Walking south on Schmiedgasse, you come to the scenic fork in the road called the Plonlein or Little Square. To the right of the Plonlein is the KOBOLZELLER TOWER (circa 1360 ). The Kobolzeller Gate leads out to a winding, steep road to the Tauber Valley and the famous Double Bridge.

a traficlight for the steps up to the tower

by globetrott

When you step up the plenty of steps to the top of the tower of the townhall, you will realize, that it certainly was never planed that tourists get up there, but rather some workers to fix the tiles or what-ever.
So somebody had the clever idea to install a traficlight for the steps up to the tower, because at some places it is simply impossible to pass by another person coming down.
This traficlight is operated by the cashier in the very top of the tower.

Tilman Riemenschneider also in Franziskanerkirche

by globetrott

Franziskanerkirche is another important church of Rothenburg, but it might be easily overseen, as it does not have a high spire and it is almost a bit hidden by trees, when you walk in Herrngasse from Marktplatz to Burgtor. The most important work of art, that you may see there is an early work of Tilman Riemenschneider The altar shows Saint Franziscus getting his stigmatas.
The church is open during the day and you may enter freely and without restrictions !

Ludwig Beisbart (bakery)

by FreeCloud about Ludwig Beisbart (bakery)

Not a restaurant, but one of those bakery stores from where you can buy all kinds of 'goodies': sandwiche, bread, salad, fruit, drinks and desserts!

We bought some 'sweets' from there several times. For those of you who want to save food bill, such stores are the places where you should go: have good food and with lower cost. Tomato turnover or spinach turnover, delicious!

They do, so as everyone in Rothenburg, sell 'snowballs', a typical Rothenburg local delicacy seems like, with various flavores. Many people like them, while others do not. For those of you who know what 'funnel cake' in USA is, the 'snowballs' really taste not much different from a funnel cake: deep fried dough then coated with power sugar plus other 'icying' flavors.
