Train Reservations or Pass - Germany

Jump to last reply

Hello - I will be traveling by train in Germany/Austria in October. The itinerary is set:

1) Fly to Frankfurt, stay several days with friends near Karlsruhe.

2) Train Karlsruhe to Munich, stay 3 nights

3) Train Munich to Salzburg, stay 3 nights

4) Train Salzburg to Rothenburg, stay 2 nights

5) Train Rothenburg to Frankfurt, overnight and fly home the next day.

Questions -- for four journeys, should I buy point-to-point tickets or a railpass? If point-to-point, when and through whom should I purchase tickets? I already checked RailEurope and some tickets can't be purchased yet. If I have a pass, can I really just jump on any train that's convenient?

Thanks for any and all help!
