Romantic road bus discount?
We would like to start the bus ride from Wurzburg to Rothenburg. Then stop in Rothenburg and spend the night there. The next day we would like to continue from Rotherburg to Fussen. Do we buy tickets for the whole trip in Wurzburg, or just pay once for each section of the trip. For example, do we pay one time for the ride from Wurzbur to Rothenburg, and then pay for a different fare from Rothenburg to Fussen? If so, do we still get 60% discount for each of the bus rides if we have the Eurail SelectPass Saver?

Stopovers are possible.
Normal ticket Würzburg to Füssen is EUR 58,50. With 60% off is EUR 23,40 pp.
I would recommend to use trains. This is faster, you have more flexibility and they are cheaper.
Würzburg - Rothenburg: EUR 10,00 pp; travel time 1:09; hourly connections
Rothenburg - Füssen: buy a Bavaria Ticket (EUR 25,00). Covers all local trains in Bavaria for day. On weekdays only past 9am. Covers also nearly all other local public transport, e.g. the bus from Füssen to Hohenschwangau (for Neuschwanstein Castle) and back.
Thus train is 10,00 + 25,00 / 2 = 22,50 per person (incl bus Füssen - Hohenschwangau).
Romantic Raod Bus is EUR 23,40, Füssen - Hohenschwangau and return is 2,60 or 3,40 pp = EUR 26,00 pp.
Keep in mind that the Romantic Road connects romantic places. A bus trip on this road is not romantic as such. And with the bus you cannot spent just some hours in a place, as the next bus is only next day. With the trains you're more flexible. You can just take one an hour or two later.
Travel Tips for Würzburg
You really must see the...
You really must see the 'Festung Marianburg' in Wurzburg. I saw somewhere on this site that a lady called it the 'Residence'. I am sorry but she is wrong. The 'Residence' palace is downtown Wurzburg and is surrounded by city.
The 'Festung Marianburg' is located atop the hill overlooking the Main river and the view includes the whole city of Wurzburg. Festung Marianburg is surrounded with a magnificent vineyard, and walk trail.
The 'Residence' is an absolute must also. It is a palace that is located in downtown Wurzburg. I will be posting pictures and more information at a later date. Fondest memory of Wurzburg: My son was born in the U.S.Army Hospital in Wurzburg Germany!
Religion and I are embossed on oppisite sides of the coin. My mom gets scared of my utter disbelief and gives me the "Oh Johnny" everytime we talk of such. The churches of America have gotten cheaper in both design and material as we slowly drift into this new century. The cathedrals and churches of Europe at least give you a sense that you now have entered a sacred place, and even as sac-religious I may be I feel a tad bit spiritual in these beautiful structures. You may ask what does this have to do with anything and I will say "Absolutely nothing. Just look at the photo and close that mouff."
The friendly Restaurant
I found this restaurant by chance the evening I arrived in Wurzburg. The restaurant of the Post Hotel was close so I went there. In this restaurant you can breath a family atmosphere and the cook is very friendly. There you can taste good Italian dishes.
You absolutely must walk...
You absolutely must walk around downtown and cross the Old Saints Bridge. You get a wonderful view of the Fortress from here. Make a trip up to the Fortress as well, but be prepared for quite a hike if you want to go from downtown. And definitely have a look around the Residenz and the gardens there during the summer. If you can make it to the Mozartfest, do that!
Falkenhaus - an ornate Rokkoko-building
Falkenhaus is the name of this beautiful building with ornate Rokkoko-stucco-works all over the facade and it dates back to the year 1751, when it was the "Gasthof zum Falken" (a restaurant and hotel). After the owner, a lady, had finished that beautiful facade, she applied for a reduction of taxes, because she had built such a beautiful house as a pleasure to see from outside and in order to feed noble people inside (this is the original text in old german: eußerlich zur Zierde der Stadt gebauet, innerlich aber zu bewirtung hoher und vornehmer Herrschaften eingerichtet seye"
A tax-reduction was grated for 8 years ...
In 1945 this house was completely destroyed and restored again in 1952
Inside this building you will nowadays also find the Tourist Information.
