My husband and 2 friends are about to embark on a bike trip through Europe. We are riding from Frankfurt to Saarsbrucken. We want to take the train from Saarsbrucken to Wurzburg with our bikes, what is the most economic way to take the train?
We will be there in 2 weeks, wondering how hard it will be to find places to stay along the way at this time of the year?
Not on Front Page
you have train look at the website deutsch bahn ans select bikes
you may also have a look at flixbus
you have a map you can select people and bike
be carreful you have to book well in advance because there only fews bikes space on the rack
in germany I use campground or youth hostel
Most long-distance trains don't have bike-compartments but the regional trains have.
Portal-page in english:
If I were you I'd do some inquiries about best trains and tickets at Frankfurt main station or at Saarbruecken main station were service staff most likely speaks english.
When You are looking for a train in https://www.bahn.de/p/view/index.shtml (or in https://www.bahn.com/en/view/index.shtml and than using "search") You can select at the very bottom "Only show connections that allow carriage of bicycles (buy bicycle ticket if necessary)". It will show You the trains with places for bicycles.
BUT: Maybe at the morning or evening or in holiday weeks there is not enough space in this part of the train. Please calculate in Your travelling. I use the app of www.bahn.de and when the train is too full, I would look for another connection to my destination. I did it in this summer, too
