1. Re: train booking

Standard fare tickets cost the same whether you buy them in advance or on the spot.

You can save a lot of money by getting a savings fare well in advance but you are then tied to one particular train. Risky if your plane is late.

Search the Germany forum for "Savings fare" and "Rail & Fly" or have a look at the German railways website: http://www.bahn.de/i/view/DEU/en/

a) Lufthansa

use their "AIRail" service, i.e. a flight ticket to Stuttgart Hbf (main train station)

b) other airline

check if your airline offers Rail&Fly tickets

bahn.de/i/…rail_and_fly.shtml

c) saving fare tickets you buy in advance

are not without risk as detbo already explained

d) standard fare tickets

again see answer #1
