Train Fare

by helenrosem

How much would the regular (not ICE) train fare be from Frankfurt to Limburg?

Re: Train Fare

by ATLC

I've searched http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en (the English version of the German train scheduler), but it says that fares are not available. The ICE fare is 28 euro. So I would think it would be quite a bit lower than that for a regular train. The trip only takes a little over an hour.

I looked at the site in English, and it said, as you mentioned, "Fare not Available", but under mode of travel said "RB Bus" Gary

Re: Train Fare

Well spotted!
I looked a bit further but soon got lost in all the public transportation companies. Unfortunately...

Re: Train Fare

by lostsooner55

Does "RB Bus", mean Regional Bahn and Bus, or is that the name of a company ? B

Re: Train Fare

by ATLC

RB does mean Regional Bahn. I just caught that when I clicked on a link.
See http://www.bahn.de/hilfe/view/pk/en/alle_ergebnisseiten_produktinfo.shtml

You might want to check on: http://www.bahn.de, to make sure the German trains are not affected by a strike when you wish to travel. They seem to have that possibility right now. Gary

For Frankfurt to Limburg with regional trains the RMV tariff applies. Thus the prices are not shown in the DB timetable.
Single ticket is EUR 9,50. RMV price level 6.
The RMV tickets are zone-to-zone tickets. You can travel on them from any S-Bahn/U-Bahn/tram/bus stop in Frankfurt to any train/bus stop in Limburg.

Re: Train Fare

by ATLC

Out of interest: can you find this sort of information on the internet? I mean, local bus networks, RB networks: schedulers and prices?

Re: Train Fare

by abalada

The DB timetable covers all public transport in Germany. Trains, trams, buses. Even the boat schedules on some rivers and lakes.
http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en
In the advanced search mode you can even query by address. The system knows about 40 mio addresses in Germany.

To find the right prices if not displayed by the DB timetable is not that easy.
If there are no prices given and the trip is not too far, it will be mostlikely inside a Verkehrsverbund (local public transport network). They have their own tariffs which are not shown by the DB timetable. In this case the RMV tariff applies. They all have a homepage but they are often or at least mainly in German only and to find the fares is often not easy (like counting fare zones you will cross). RMV with its fare calculator in English is rather the exception.

Verkehrsverbünde in Germany
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_deutscher_Tarif-_und_VerkehrsverbCnde
(dark grey = none)

Tickets inside such a network are always zone-to-zone tickets covering all local public transport (regional trains, S-Bahn, U-Bahn, trams, buses) inside these zones. If it comes to tariff details however they employ experts which ensure that their rules are for sure different than the ones of all other such networks in Germany ;-o

Re: Train Fare

by himalia11

I know you asked for the regular fare which abalada already answered accurately, but in case you want to go from Frankfurt to Limburg and back the same day with 2 persons or more, you should consider taking a Hessenticket. That's what we usually use. It costs 29 Euro for up to 5 persons and can be used after 9 am Mo-Fr and all day on the week-end. ICE are not allowed, but if you take the ICE to Limburg you'll end up at the station "Limburg Süd" and need a bus to the town centre, whereas the other trains end at the central station which is in the centre.

Re: Train Fare

by helenrosem

thank you so much, I see now why I couldn't get it on the Bahn website. I'm trying to calculate my travel costs to see if it would be cheaper to get a railpass. Thanx again!

Re: Train Fare

by helenrosem

Hi, have had my beautiful trip to Germany and i just wanted to tell you that we did indeed get the ticket for 29E for four people and that was very economical. Thanx for the great tip!!!!!

Travel Tips for Limburg an der Lahn

waste separation

by chicabonita

Limburg is the first city where I saw such waste pins in the streets. Of course at home everyone in Germany has different pins and has to separate the rubbish. But despites in the stations I never saw such thing before. Wonder why not as it is said that we Germans are world champions in waste separation ...

Jonah and the whale

by himalia11

Do you know the story about Jonah and the whale in the bible? That he was swallowed by a whale and after three days was spit out? That is what is shown here at this house. You have to know it, otherwise you surely wouldn't understand it.... In any case it's interesting what old houses show you!

It's found at the place Plötze, in the old part of Limburg. It's something like north-east, close to the street Böhmergasse.

Smallest point of trading route

by himalia11

The street called "Fahrgasse" has been the old route for commerce that led from Frankfurt to Köln (Cologne). In Limburg was the smallest part of this street which you can see on this photo. In Köln, there had been an information plate with the measures that the cart was allowed to have to pass this part of the street and the tower of the old bridge in Limburg. Nowadays, trucks would also have a problem if they had to drive this way!

Mill-wheels at the Lahn river

by himalia11

At the path that leads along the Lahn river, you'll find two mill wheels: one at the restaurant "Obermuehle" and another smaller one closeby.
This winter, they looked great, with the frozen water on it, I've never seen them like that before!

It's at the left side of river Lahn, at the path below the cathedral.

Limburg/ Lahn

by Elena77

I've stumbled over Limburg pretty much by accident in January. I had to change trains there and missed my connection. So I had to wait for 1 hour for another train taking me to Koblenz and decided to explore the town in the meantime. And I'm very glad that I went on this little sight seeing tour: Limburg does have such a lovely old town and an extraordinarily high "density" of half timbered houses. Tiny alleys, cobblestone pavement, a small castle and an exceptional Cathedral... there's so much to see and do.
I decided to return to Limburg as soon as possible for a closer look and did so last weekend.
