Markt Bibart Transportation
Car-free bicycle route to Scheinfeld
From Markt Bibart there are well-marked hiking and bicycle routes in all directions. I took this car-free bicycle route to Scheinfeld, and continued on from there to Frankfurt and Markt Taschendorf.
The round blue sign in the first photo indicates that both pedestrians and cyclists are allowed to use this path, but that pedestrians have priority.

Numerous long-distance passenger and freight trains pass through Markt Bibart station without stopping.
The InterCityExpress train in the first photo is ICE 628 on its way from Munich to Essen. This is a third generation ICE train (actually two of them coupled together) which can reach a top speed of 280 kilometers per hour on the high-speed tracks between Frankfurt am Main and Cologne.
Markt Bibart train station
The reason I went to Markt Bibart is that this is the closest train station to Frankfurt in the Steiger Forest.
The old station building (second photo) is no longer used by the railroad company, but apparently people live there.
