Getting around Germany
Germany’s transport network is outstanding and well-maintained.

Buses are virtually in every town and numerous rural areas with larger cities having more than one bus operator and some offering night services. Bus stops throughout Germany are marked by a round green and yellow sign with an H.

The majority of medium to large cities comprise tram systems or streetcars that are fairly frequent and in some areas, run underground. Signage is the same as for buses.

Light rail systems known as Stadtbahn exist in the Ruhr region and several cities. Faster than streetcars, they serve the central city and outskirts. On the front of the train is a U followed by a number.

A few of the larger cities have a fully-fledged U-Bahn (underground subway) where service is frequent, just 5 to15 minutes during off-peak periods.

Operated by GermanRail the S-Bahn is a superb express suburban train system that services the largest metropolitan areas and runs mostly above ground from the city centre to the suburbs. S-Bahn trains are marked with an S sign in the above left corner.

In addition to the above, theres the Zahnradbahn (cog railway), the Seilbahn (cable-car), the H-Bahn/Hochbahn (elevated train) and the R-Bahn, a regional train for longer distance commuter travel reaching outlying areas of major cities.

Germany has over 50,000 taxis, cream in colour with a black and yellow taxi sign on the roof. You can order a taxi by phone or find one at a taxi stand, many of which are located at stations, airports, large hotels and shopping areas.

Many visitors hire rental vehicles as driving is a pleasure in Germany with its well maintained roads and the worlds most well-known highway the Autobahn.
