We're flying into Frankfurt and out of Vienna but we're using frequent flyer miles. Do you know if we take the train from Rothenburg to Oberammergau how far the station is, also we'd need the train to get to Salsburg. St. Gilgen outside of Salsburg looks really neat but we'd need a car if we stayed there so we'll probably stay in Salsburg, how about you?

suze1, I'm still working on getting to Rothenburg. A little idea for finding train stations is to look at the web-site of a hotel you are interested in and see if they have a map or even directions from the train station to their hotel. Rick Steeves puts train stations on his maps, you just have to go to one of the places he suggests. As I plod along in my planning I'll report back to you what I find out.

Thanks Barb, here's my email in case it's easier for you [email protected]

Do you live in San Francisco, my husband and me love San Francisco.

Wicked6, you say dump the train, I'm just wondering if we fly into Frankfurt and go straight to Bacharach why would you need a car, I thought everything was better seen by boat or train. Also, making our way back to Rothenburg it's 160 miles, wouldn't it be easier by train. As much as I would like to do this trip by car I don't want my husband to be stressed out with a lot of driving, then again maybe it's beautiful country and he wouldn't be stressed out. It's really hard to know how to get around when we've never been there. I know we'll rent a car for sure when we get to Fussen.

I don't think you need a car for a couple days on the Rhine - there is a train line along both sides of the river, and also the K-D cruise.

Bacharach is one of our favorite towns.
We make a point of stopping there every time we go to Germany. We have stayed at the Kranenturm many times. They have retrofitted their windows. It is quieter than it used to be. We have also stayed at Letties. She is a very nice lady. We also always go to our favorite restaurant. Run by a lovely couple.
