BAVARIA Getting Around in Bavaria Story By Pamela D. Harris and photos by Alden Jones and Alison Smith 1 Bike 2 Car


3 Train In Bavaria, there are many ways to get


from one place to the next. Since Germans love their cars, many drive, but because there is little parking in the cities, many Germans that live or work inside cities do not drive regularly. Another favored method of transportation is the bicycle. Bikes are a good way to get across town quickly with fewer traffi c problems. T ey are also a good source of exercise for natives and tourists alike. Tourists can rent bikes to ride around the city or at one of the many parks in town. Public transportation is also a viable option for both Germans and tourists. T e

S-bahn and U-bahn systems provide ways to get across town quickly and have many lines to take from each station. T e tram system provides public transportation to some areas that are not serviced by the S-bahn or U-bahn,


can utilize the train system. T is system allows for travel between cities for day trips or between stops on an itinerary. Rail passes can be bought before a trip to simplify travel.


Passes are bought for a a more complete


system of transportation throughout the city. Tickets can be purchased allowing riders all-day access to any of these means of public transportation. Group tickets cost less than two individual tickets. One ticket covers the S-bahn, U-bahn and the tram system, and costs less than 10 euro for a group of fi ve people. For traveling outside the cities, tourists


number of days and cover all train travel within the same country during that day. So, if traveling between German cities or taking day trips out of the city, rail passes may be a good option if the point-to-point tickets add up to more than the cost of the rail passes. In order to use them, passes must be purchased and received before leaving the United States. T ey are validated at the train station prior to their fi rst use.
