Looking at this leg for a advice. Long story short (on previous posts) my wife and I have opted for 2 nights in Rothenburg as opposed to one night in each Fussen and Rothenburg. We will be traveling with a Swiss Card in Switzerland, but wondering if there are fare specials (Like Bayern ticket, etc) once we cross the German border. I am looking at a Sunday travel day on DB website leaving Lauterbrunnen at 08:33 arriving Rothenburg at 16:49. Looks like the first train change in Germany is Karlsruhe from Basel where we have a 17 minute stop. Next changes before Rothenburg are Ansbach and Steinbach. We plan to buy point-point tickets 90 days in advance for our German leg, so will be buying in the next few weeks.
One other side question on this route...When I choose Lauterbrunnen as the station it gives a variety of choices (Lauterbrunnen Dorf, or Ey, or Helioport, etc). I leave it as just the plain Lauterbrunnen with none of those added on. Also, I have chosen Rothenburg ob der Tauber Bahnhof as my destination. I assume that's the best. Thanks for your help! Feel I'm getting the hang of the DB website, just need to brush up on my German geography better!
