Bavaria

Getting there & around

Munich is Bavaria’s main transport hub, second only to Frankfurt in flight and rail connections. Rail service in Munich is exemplary, as it is in all major German cities, and this is also true throughout much of Bavaria. Air links are much less extensive.

In deepest Bavaria, a car will allow you more flexibility in your travel plans, otherwise you may have to rely on buses. Trips along the Romantic Road are done by tour bus, although again a car is a better idea.

If you’re travelling in a group, or can assemble one, you can make enormous savings with the Bayern-Ticket (€25). This allows up to five adults unlimited travel on one weekday from 9am to 3am. It’s good for 2nd-class rail travel across Bavaria (regional trains only, no ICs or ICEs) as well as all public transport.
