Cheapest local train tickets from Nuremberg as a base.

Are there local, point-to-point tickets that are even cheaper than the regional, one-day Länder-Ticket. For example, we will be based in Nuremberg for six nights in May 2014. If on one day we want to go by train from Nuremberg to Wurtzburg (and/or Rothenburg), spend the day and then return in the evening . . . .on the next day we want to go to Regensberg, spend then day and then return in the evening to Nuremberg, etc. If so, should such tickets be purchased in advance? On the web or at the train station?

For day trips to Würzburg or Regensburg the Bayern Ticket (a Länder-Ticket) is the best deal.

To Rothenburg ob der Tauber and to Bamberg you can use the cheaper VGN TagesTicket Plus.

http://www.vgn.de/en/dayticket?Edition=en&p=2

- EUR 17,50 for the entire VGN area

- valid for up to 6 persons albeit only 2 of them can be 18 years or older

- if bought on a Saturday also good for Sunday

- no past 9am restriction on weekdays like with the Bayern Ticket

Thank you for your prompt response.

Is it possible to buy either the Länder-Ticket or the TagesTicketPlus at the Nuremberg train station on the day of intended use shortly before departure? Is doing so more costly than online?

I don't know about the Lander-Ticket, but you can definitely buy the TagesTicket at the train station the day of departure. Prices are the same as online.

Yes you can buy them right before departure and the price is always the same, regardless when you buy these two typ of tickets.
