We are planning on taking the train from Nuremburg to Rothenburg on December 24. Do we need to buy train tickets and reservations now (from the US), or can we wait until Christmas week when we arrive in Munich. There are five of us. The same question applies for leaving Rothenburg for Frankfurt on December 26. If we need to make these arrangements now from the US, how should we proceed?
Our entire itinery is: Fly into Munich Saturday Dec. 20, visit Dachau Dec 21 (day trip), visit Regensburg Dec 22 (day trip), take the train to Nuremburg Dec 23 and spend the night, take the train to Rothenburg Dec 24 and spend two nights, then take the train from Rothenburg to Frankfurt Dec 26 where we spend the night before flight home on Dec 27. Thank you
