How to get there
Even though Sonthofen is in the very south of Germany, it is reachable with public transportation. The next long-distance train station is either Ulm or Augsburg. There you need to change to regional trains which go directly to Sonthofen.
From Munich Main Station you can choose between regional trains to Sonthofen (every hour) and the ICE to Augsburg and regional trains from there to Sonthofen.
If there are enough interested participants, we could also arrange a shuttle bus from Ulm (Main Station) directly to the hotel. Please let us now by registration if you are interested and at which time you are presumably arriving to Ulm.
Alternatively we also could arrange a shuttle bus from the station in Sonthofen to the hotel.
In either case, please let us know with your registration if you interested in a shuttle.
