Please note, that at times of heavy traffic along the route e. g. “fathers` day” (Ascension Day), Easter or Whitsun there could be a shortage in the bus transportation system (“Trubachtal-Express”). Groups of more than 6 should definitely advise the transport operator in charge (Reisebüro Josef Klemm GmbH & Co. KG) of their plans/needs, such as number of people, bus stop for starting and scheduled time.
You will find parking spaces all along the route at different hike car parks. Here they are shown on a MAP. From the south (Nuremberg) or north (Bayreuth) you will travel by the federal road “Bundesstraße” B2.
