Travelling by train

Travelling within Bavaria: The cheapest way for travel within Bavaria is usually the Bayern-Ticket. With this ticket, you can travel alone or with a group of up to five people using all regional trains in Bavaria. The price is 25€ for one person and an additional 6€ for every further person (Therefore, for five people, it would be 49€ collectively or 9,80€ per person).

Within this period of time, the ticket is valid for an unlimited number of rides, but if you use it earlier, you will have to pay a fine of 60€.
