I've been trying to decipher train schedules and time for tours. Can someone tell me if this is doable?
We would leave Salzburg fairly early on a Tuesday. Had thought to use Bayern ticket, so I know this must be after 9 am on a weekday... it might be better to get point to point tickets to take an earlier train. Our destination will be Hohenschwangau, where we'll stay the night, have a walk at the lake, and take the first English tours the next day. We'd very much like to see Dachau, so we thought we'd go from Salzburg to Dachau, then to the memorial, then back to the train station to collect our luggage and on to Fuessen and bus to Hohenschwangau. (Or possibly stay the night in Fuessen)
After touring the castles, if possible we would like to journey on to Rothenburg ob der Tauber. When I enter the route on bahn.de it says "Your input yielded several possible stops. Please select the desired stop." But it wants me to input the stop rather than giving me several choices. So I'm not sure what to input. I believe we would go from Fussen to Augsburg, then Treuchtlingen to Steinach to Rothenburg. Is this correct? If so, it looks like it would take us about 7 hours. If we took the 13:05 train, we wouldn't arrive in time for the Night Watchman tour, so we probably should just take our time and spend the night somewhere else, then go to Rothenburg the following day. Or is there a better way to Rothenburg ob der Tauber from Fuessen?
In playing with the schedules, it looks like we could easily get to Regensburg from Fuessen that afternoon, then to Rothenburg the next day after having time to explore Regensburg a bit that morning. Or would there be a better overnight stop?
Thanks for your suggestions.
