munich fussen by rail

We plan to fly to Munich and then travel by rail to Fussen.

My enquires on Deutsch Bahn seem to say that there are no weekend trains.Am I missing something and if not, is there other transport apart from hiring a car.

DB timetable

http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/e

From: MUC airport

To: Fuessen

You can only use "Füssen" or "Fuessen" - but not "Fussen". You can also find the homepage of Füssen under

http://www.fuessen.de

There are trains all days. Best is to use a Bavaria-Ticket for this trip. Valid one day on all local trains in Bavaria. On this route there are only local trains.

Bavaria Ticket Single (1 person) EUR 18,00

Bavaria Ticket (2-5 persons) EUR 25,00

Covers also the bus from Füssen to Hohenschwangau - in the case Neuschwanstein Castle is your real destination.

You can query at the DB timetable also for connections

To: Hohenschwangau

We will arrive at Munich Hbf (on the way by train from Bremen - Cologne - Bonn - Mannheim). Please tell me how to get which bus name or bus number, or which train from Munich Hbf, as we will go to Fussen - to visit the Neuschwanstein Castle. I'm appreciate your help, thank you!.

This problem shows up about weekly... You won't find any train connections if you misspell the place "Fussen", the Bahn website will then provide bus connections to a village named Fussenberg near Regensburg, which is not where you want to go.

The town's name is "Füssen" or, if you can't type the Umlaut, has to be spelled "Fuessen".
