travelling to and from Fussen by public transport

Hi everyone

Can anyone give us some advice regarding visiting other pretty resorts by public transport. Preferrably within 1 hour journey time.

We will be staying in Fussen with our motorhome, and don't want to use it for visiting other towns, villages etc.

We think Oberammergau, Mittenwald, Garmisch-Partenkirchen Lindau, Dinkelsbuhl, Ingolsdtat, being some of the places we would like to visit. We will be in Germany for at least 2 weeks, so we will probably travel further north in Bavaria, after about a week.

Hope I have not asked too difficult questions, but would very much appreciate your knowledge.

Many thanks

Frankly, Fuessen is not te best place to use as a hub, I'm afraid. It would be better to be either close to Munich (which is the hub, or perhaps to be in Garmisch area, from where several of your destinations are connected by rail.

Look on bahn.de- choose English- and you'll see bus/rail connections

You can get from Fuessen to Garmisch and then to Mittenwald by going on the bus to Reutte, Austria and then train to Garmisch. Scenery on this route is absolutely stunning. This route takes about two hours, and then Mittenwald is just 20 minutes by train from Garmisch.

From Fuessen to Oberammergau is 1 hour 20 minutes by bus. One of the stops along the way is Wieskirche, an absolutely amazing church.

Dinkelsbuhl and Ingolstadt are north of Munich, so seeing them from a further north base in Bavaria would probably work better. Doesn't look like there is any direct way from Fuessen to Lindau - takes about three hours.

Use this link to check travel routes by train or bus. Unless your computer has the umlaut (two dots) that go over the "u" in Fuessen, you have to spell the place Fuessen to get the proper routing.

Railway map Bavaria

bahnland-bayern.de/content-startseite/streck…

You see at the south of Bavaria many terminal railway lines. Like the one to Füssen. These train lines run into Alpine valleys - end end there. To travel in east west direction is slow. Apart from the Ausserfernbahn railway (Kempten - Pfronten - Reutte - Garmisch-Partenkirchen) not possible by train. And also Reutte to Garmisch-Partenkirchen is 1 hour by train. There also few buses serving the east-west routes. And even by car this will be time consuming.

> We think Oberammergau, Mittenwald, Garmisch-Partenkirchen Lindau, Dinkelsbuhl, Ingolsdtat,

None of them can be reached within 1 hour by public transport. Using your motorhome you can also make it only to Oberammergau within 1 hour.

The buses in Füssen serve in first place the immediate area.

OVG day ticket for families (2 adults and any children under 15y) is EUR 10,00.

thank you very much everyone for replying to my queries regarding public transport to different towns, etc.

Because of your replies we have decided to spend 3-4 days at a village/town, and then go on to another one for 3-4 days. Seems much better, since we will have our dog with us and cannot leave her for too long in the motorhome.

Again I appreciate all your help

Kind regards
