Munich to Rothenberg

I was advised that the tube takes 105 minutes from Munich to Rothenberg ( With one transfer) . We are traveling with Eurail Passes. Does that cover this trip and where do I find information on it? Thank You

I was not aware that Rothenburg was on one of the London tube lines. Or did you mean the München U-Bahn? Some mistake here, perhaps? Rothenburg is not on a tube line! There is, however, a daily tourist bus from München to Rothenberg, which leaves at 8.15 am and gets in to Rothenburg at 5.10 pm. With a Eurail Pass you will get a sixty per cent discount on the regular fare. The service is run by Deutsche Touring GmbH; it is used almost exclusively by US and Japanese tourists, and you can make bookings by calling 0049 69 7903 230. München to Rothenburg is also an easy train journey, with a couple of changes. About three hours. Use the slower trains (3.5 hours each way) and a family of four need pay only €26 in total (about $32) for a return day trip from München to Rothenburg. There are, by the way, many other Bavarian towns which are as picture-perfect as Rothenburg but less given over to tourism.

If sharonf already has an Eurail pass it doesn't make sense to restrict to slower trains. Just look for the fastest connections on www.bahn.de from Munich to Rothenburg.

It will take more than 105 min though.

Your passes will cover the trip.

The change will probably be in Steinach. The R-berg train will probably be waiting for you on the next platform over.

There will be at least one other change as there are no direct trains from Munich to Steinach. Probably in Nuremberg, but consulting bahn.de is necessary.

And please, call the place Rothenburg with a "u" when looking for it on bahn.de or anywhere else, otherwise you won't get any helpful answers.

Attention, there are several Rothenburgs in Germany, the one you'll want is named Rothenburg ob der Tauber.
