Hi everybody !
Who can compare the cost of arriving from center of Leipzig by usual local train (for 2 persons) and taxi?
In the site DB such information is absent - "fares not available". I need to know average values..:-)
Thank you in advance..
Cost depends on how far you want to go. So I'm not able to give you detailed info on that. But using local transport is in any way cheaper than a taxi, even if you are 2 persons.
A taxi would be the reasonable means of transport if you want to go to remote places that are not served well by public transport. Or if you want to go late at night when there are no buses or trams any more.
If you tell us where you will be starting from it will help people to advise you. It is unusual not to see fares on the excellent bahn.de unless you are looking for dates too far in advance or for an international service.
Like Bernd I would be very surprised indeed if a taxi were cheaper than public transport, even for 2 people.
Agree with you..but I have a WIFE..:-) I need to get airport Hale from center of the town.
Leipzig to Leipzig/Halle Airport is EUR 4,00 per person. No matter from which train station or tram or bus stop you start in Leipzig. The RE trains from Leipzig Hbf to the airport need 14 minutes. Note that the IC trains on this route are not covered by this ticket.
By taxi you have to calculate 35 minutes from central Leipzig to the airport. Approx. EUR 40.
Thank you. I've received reply on my question already. So, gess know all..
In case you have a lot of heavy baggage ( I learn that you travel with a wife ;o))) then going by train could be a bit uncomfortable. But there are some airport shuttle companies. They pick you up at your hotel and bring you to the airport. They are more expensive than the train but cheaper than a taxi. I'm sure your hotel reception staff can help you with that.
I think so too. Thanks for reply..
what and how much is a day tour of Dresden?
what about Sunday's?
Donnadoo, it would be better if you asked your question in the Dresden travel forum here:
This is the Leipzig travel forum (Leipzig is more than 100 km from Dresden) and only the people who have already replied to the question about Leipzig are likely to see your question on this thread.
If you mean getting to Dresden by train from Leipzig then simply look at the official German railway website in English:
It will give you train times, details and fares.. for Sundays as well as weekdays.
