I also was in Nurnberg but by car (about 180km). "Bayern ticket" is train ticket for 5 persons and it cost 21E (it's the same price if one person travel) and in Munchen you...

The distances are not so great and we didn't drive more than three hours to get from any one place to the next and mostly, the times were much shorter than that. Thanks to D for the great job in driving and to Lupetto...
