Bus & Train
Subject to official approval, the regular service along the Romantic Road will commence on 28 April and end on 6 October 2019. At the ITB fair in March 2019 we will present the current timetable, from this point on online bookings are possible.
Important information: Owing to the roadworks on the A3 motorway between Frankfurt and Würzburg, drivers may experience considerable delays, particularly in the morning on the way to Rothenburg and we ask for your understanding. If buses are more than 30 minutes late, please ring one of the Bus Hotlines to check the arrival / departure times for your stop with the drivers: +49 (0)171 6532340 or +49(0)171 6512471 Every passenger must have a valid printed ticket ready for inspection. If you book on the internet, please print out your ticket. If you book via an agency or travel organiser, you will receive an agency voucher. If you pay the bus driver in cash, you will receive a ticket / receipt in return. If you do not have written evidence of payment when the tickets are checked, you will be deemed to be travelling without a valid ticket and an additional charge of € 60.00 will be payable.
Our buses are fitted with free W-LAN so you can also download the useful Romantic Road App. This free mobile application provides a detailed introduction to the 29 towns and villages along the Romantic Road and all highlights, including the World Heritage Sites of the Romantic Road, i.e., the Residence in Würzburg, the Limes, the frontier walls of the Roman Empire at Dinkelsbühl and the Pilgrimage Church of Wies, Rothenburg o.d.T. and Neuschwanstein Castle, King Ludwig II of Bavaria’s dream-come-true in stone.
In addition to a variety of useful features and information, e.g., opening times, admission prices, accessibility, integrated map, historical background, etc., you can immediately convey your impressions and experiences of the Romantic Road via social networks. The app is available from the App Store (iPhone) and Google Play Store (Android) in German and English. Naturally, we will also be pleased to give you a free route map.
Additionally, you can borrow an audio guide from the driver free of charge. In German, English, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Spanish or Portuguese, it tells you in detail about the towns, villages and sights along the Romantic Road. The deposit of € 50.00 or your passport will be returned to you when you hand back the device. If you do not have your own headphones with you, you can purchase a set from the driver for € 5.00.
Cooled drinks are also available from the driver during the journey: white wine and red wine from the vineyards along the Romantic Road in 0.25 l bottles and original Romantic Road ‘Zwickel’ Beer from the Fürst Wallerstein brewery (0.33 l), as well as non-alcoholic beverages. Your satisfaction is our goal and we are always receptive to criticism, suggestions for improvements, ideas and praise:
