www.bahn.de is the website for train travel in Germany. It also "knows" almost all other modi of travel (local bus, tram etc.) You can enter Stuttgart Airport as the starting point.

From Stuttgart airport to Friedrichshafen you will probably have to change twice, once in Stuttgart itself and once in Ulm or Singen. See the website (go to "internat. Guests" for english version).

As most of the travel will be by local train it is not possible to book and hardly necessary to buy the ticket in advance. The ticket machines at the Stuttgart airport stations take credit cards and have an english option.

From Friedrichshafen to Frankfurt it will be easiest to travel via Ulm. Again, enter Frankfurt Airport" as the destination.

DB timetable


From: STR Airport

To: Friedrichshafen

To: FRA Airport

You can give any train or bus stop as destination. If you switch to the "Advanced search" folder even any address.

You can buy tickets directly online and print them on your printer in the office. The credit card used for the booking must however be shown to the conductor together with the online ticket (measure against fraud, i.e. that not just stolen credit card numbers are used to buy a ticket).

Friedrichshafen bus lines


The railroads are grey.

Friedrichshafen Stadtbahnhof = city

Friedrichshafen Hafenbahnhof = harbour

The are some more train stops not shown of the map. At the 2 named bigger stations there are also taxis waiting for customers.
