Berchtesgaden to Garmisch

hi, we need to get from Berchtesgaden to Garmisch in August, and have some questions hoping someone would have the answers to:

1). Could not find a direct train to Garmisch and the ones we found require two stops, one of them giving us only 4 mins in Freilassing. I could not find any information as to which track this train would arrive in Freilassing so is 4 mins going to be a concern for us to catch this connecting?

2). If we were to take a taxi from Berchtesgaden to Freilassing, where would we be able to find the info as to how much it would cost? I found taxizentrale-berchtesgaden.de/tarife/preisbe… and it looks to be about 50 euros which is a lot more than the train. I am not sure if this is even worth it, or if there is any other alternative (sorry, no rental car!) maybe some private transportation that is cheaper?

1. Re: Berchtesgaden to Garmisch

You'll have to change trains twice (Freilassing and München Hbf).

The 4 minutes for a change at Freilassing when traveling from Berchtesgaden to Munich are fully by purpose. Nothing to be concerned about at all.

You can do this trip on a Bayern Ticket.
