(Until the late 1960s Muehlhausen had its own train station. Due to limited use it was closed.)
Nowadays, the nearest train station is Wiesloch-Walldorf, a mere 5-10 min by car. From here you can hop onto the famously punctual German rail network (DB = Deutsche Bahn) connected to all towns in the region & all major cities in the country, with further connections to other European cities.
The ticketing & information office is open Mondays to Fridays 07.15am - 11.45am & 02.00pm - 4.45pm. If the office is closed you can also purchase tickets from the ticketing maching outside the train station.
I usually use this train station to travel to Heidelberg and Karlsruhe. On weekdays, trains leave for Heidelberg approx. every 20 min. You can pick-up a train schedule for the region (Fahrplan) at the ticketing office.
TIP: The most cost-effective ticket for the area is called Ticket 24 Plus.
This ticket is valid for up to 5 adults and vaild for, you guessed it, 24 hours. It is valid for "Zone 3". Check with the ticketing office how far the region spans that is included in the ticket.
The ticket definitely takes you to Heidelberg and also allows you to take the city busses and trams once you are there, all for the price of 8 EUROS. (see photo)
There is a pathway underneath the tracks to get to the other side, and recently 2 elevators were installed to aid travellers with heavy luggage or walking difficulties to cross the new bridge over the tracks.
The train station has its own bus stop, with connections to the surrounding villages, including Muehlhausen.

A strange phenomenon is taking place in my gorgeous little village: In 2001 John (my Scottish fiance) came to Germany with me for the 1st time. In 2003, a Scottish husband-wife team opened a doctor's office on the main street. And shortly afterwards, Kilts and More opened for business, not far from the doctor's office!
What's going on here? A Scottish Invasion? Have the red Highlanders discovered a soft-spot for our rolling vineyards, thick forests and excellent wine and spirits? What's next? Highland Games? A military tattoo? Battle re-enactments?
What to buy: Whatever the reason, this shop seems quite misplaced in Muehlhausen, but my family have assured me that they are doing good business from people in and around our village. Unfortunately during our visit they were closed for summer vacation, but one look through the window had John convinced that this is geniune, high-quality stuff!
They sell Kilts (obviously), women's traditional clothes, Scottish arts and craft and even Bagpipes and Drums! Visit their website to find specific family ("Clan") Tartans and plenty of superb gift ideas as well.
Opening Hours: only on Saturdays from 10:00am - 04:00pm, but you can call or e-mail them during the week to organise your visit to their shop (email@example.com) It seems they do most of their business over the internet.
So, if you're in our village and have any kinds of Scottish interests or connections, pop into Kilts and More :-)
What to pay: (I cannot comment on prices as they shop was closed, but prices are listed in their ONLINE SHOP on their website.) Their website is available in both German and English.
