Hi my name is Shirley and I will be travelling to Germany the last weekend of May thru the first two weeks of June.
My schedule is as follows:
May 31st (Saturday)- arriving in Frankfurt at 9:30am and taking train directly to Rothenburg od der Tauber
June 2 (Monday)---taking train from Rothenburg od der Tauber to Munich
June 5 (Thursday)---taking train from Munich to Fussen (from Fussen renting a car and driving back to Munich on Sunday morning)
June 8 (Sunday morning at 10:00 or 11:00)---taking train from Munich to Salzburg
I am planning on buying the Bayern tickets for my train travel and here are my questions:
1). Can someone tell me if the Bayern ticket will work for weekend travel in the mornings on May 31st and June 8? I have read on some websites that the weekend ticket travel time starts at midnight to 3:oo next day--so does that mean you need to buy the tickets for May 31st on May 30 and for June 8 on June 7?
2). Can I just buy the ticket from the machine or counter on the day of travel instead of online in advance and is it the same price regardless of whether I buy now or later?
3) I read that the ticket must be used for the day of travel that is stamped on the ticket, but can you travel anytime during that day on weekdays between 9:00am to 3am next morning & weekends from midnight to 3:00am next day? The reason I am asking is because when I go onto the train website, you are asked to choose date and time of train travel and I was hoping to not be locked into a certain time if I bought the tickets in advance.
Thanks in advance for any help that you can give me. :)
