"Easy public transport to Rottenbuch" Rottenbuch Transportation Tip by Trekki
Rottenbuch Transportation: 1 reviews and 2 photos
I was here by car and didn’t have to worry about public transport. Nevertheless, Rottenbuch is conveniently located at federal road B23 which leads north from Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Oberammergau and Ettal, and not far away from federal road B17 from Füssen and Neuschwanstein Castle to the northeast. This means that public transport is quite convenient.
Rottenbuch does not have a train station, but the nearby towns of Weilheim and Schongau do have and are connected to Munich. All these have bus connections to Rottenbuch. Have a look at Pfaffenwinkel’s ”Getting around” page: on the right hand side is the network for download (trains and busses).
Bavaria’s “Bayern Fahrplan” has an excellent interactive websitewhere you look up trips. However, this is covering all Bavaria, so maybe the several bus lines listed on the so-called RVO Weilheim part of Deutsche Bahn website
will give better information. (Regionalverkehr Oberbayern = regional service Oberbabyern). The bus lines are linked to individual new sites with pdf download of the respective schedules.
Here is the schedule of bus line no 9822, which runs between Steingaden and Schongau with stop in Rottenbuch.
The other option is bus line no 9651, which runs between Weilheim and Füssen (near Neuschwanstein Castle).
If you come by car, there is a big car park area just south Rottenbuch. It is free of charge and from there it is a short walk to the former monastery ground.
