German Trains

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be traveling in Germany early December and plan to use the rail system, for the first time. We are scheduled to arrive in Munich on a Monday morning at 7:50 and plan to head to Salzburg. I looked at the bahn.de schedule and it appears that the Bayern ticket would be best. I am thinking that we should be able to catch the 10:06 or 10:35 train for 29 euros. We will then leave Salzburg and travel to Nurnberg for three nights; once again with a new Bayern ticket for 49 euros. After Nurnberg, we will return to Munich for two nights before we head back across the water. The ticket from Nuernberg to Munich is 29 euros. We will be staying near the train station and will take it to the airport for a 9:50 flight out.
My question: is this the best and most economical way to travel by train with the described itenerary? I also saw the 3 and 4 day tickets, but they are considerably more. I realize that the purchase ahead for specific times are locked in.
I would appreciate the guidance.
