Can someone let me know if there is a bus service from Hohenswangau to Rotenburg? Websites provide a lot of information on romantic road by coach, but this comes in a package. I am just looking for bus ride, without hotels etc.
Is there a bus service from Rotenburg to Frankfurt? Thanks.
I believe that there is no public transport between these two picturesque towns. i, too have spent some time searching for information and like you could find nothing. Usually bus routes are for local people and we must ask ourselves 'why should locals travel between these two places' and that is why there does not seem to be a bus
There's a new bus line starting up this year by Eurolines which runs the Romantic Road from Fussen to Frankfurt every day from April to October. It's a "hop on/hop off" service. It goes through Rothenburg ob der Tauber and Hohenswangau.
The situation in Germany changed this year. Previously the only buses you could get were local ones. But now national bus services are allowed and you can travel all over - sometimes to places that aren't served by trains.
