Solo train travel in Germany

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip to Christmas markets in Germany this year. Posted some questions before: Thank you to those who replied.

I'm posting again because the person I was going on this trip with has canceled and I'm thinking of going on my own. I have read a few posts about solo traveling and understand that as long as I'm aware of my surroundings I should be fine. My first concern is I had booked hotels that were close to the train stations, easier to walk to with luggage. Good idea or bad idea for someone alone? I thought nothing of it when I was thinking there would be two of us. (Best Western Hotel in Nürnberg and Hotel Kipping in Dresden are the ones I'm rethinking.)

Also I have been looking at train schedules at the site. The time between connections is sometimes 3 or 5 minutes, I think they must know that this is enough time to change trains but if anyone knows these train stations Wurzburg, Steinach, Ansbach and knows if they are easy to navigate I would appreciate the information. I'm just trying to know as much as possible because I'm a little nervous about doing this by myself but at the same time I would hate to cancel and wait another year.

I'm thinking of buying the train tickets when I get to the stations specially from the Frankfurt airport to Rothenburg which is my first stop because of the possibility of flight delays. Is that a good idea for the rest of the trip? (Rothenburg-Nuremberg-Prague-Dresden-Berlin)

Thanks in advance!
