Trip Report Germany by Rail and Bus

Jump to last reply

Recently returned from two weeks riding the trains and buses in Germany - mostly the Schwarzwald area and some along the Rhine Gorge. Nice solo trip meant mostly for rest, relaxation and time to kick back and read some novels. Lots of down time on flower laden balconies and sidewalk cafes.

Spent the first three days in Kappelrodeck (recommended by a fellow Fodorite) and the Achertal. Had an open day so I made a run to the Oktoberfest in Munich to meet up with some Stammtisch buddies but with an early train to the Fest and a late night train back to the Black Forest it made for a looong day. Next three nights at a farm in the Simonswäldertal. Who ever said you can't enjoy this valley by public transportation was very wrong. Three more nights at a hillside farm in the Harmersbachtal in Oberharmersbach-Riersbach. And a final three nights along the Rhine around Bacharach and Budenheim.

Lots of easy day trips on the free trains and buses in the Schwarzwald - courtesy of the KONUS program. Best deal going... Nothing like two stress free weeks in Germany to get the blood flowing again. For more details - accommodation and restaurant reviews - lessons learned and a few words of wisdom - and of course some pictures - go to my website (www.bensbauernhof.com) or check out this link - http://www.bensbauernhof.com/germanybyrailandbus2011.html
