Could anyone tell me if it is possible to get from Frankfurt to Coburg by bus. I will arrive in Frankfurt on a thursday evening and will need to leave Coburg on Monday morning to catch my return flight. I have looked at the tains option and would like to compare it with the bus if possible. Dave B

From Frankfurt on the Main take the train or try to fly into Nürnberg, Hof-Plauen or Erfurt and take the train or bus then ;)

Unlike other countries there are very few long-distance buses in Germany. Buses are primarily for local transport only, from a village to a city or within a city where there are no tracks. Train is the most sensible option for your travel, alternatives are renting a car or using www.mitfahrzentrale.de

Coburg itself is a very small airfield, mainly used by private jets and sport planes. I think you'll need a taxi to cover the distance from the train station to the aiport in Coburg.

The size is really impressive, isn't it? ;)

Tell the pilot of the Airforce One that size doesn't matter - after he was told to land in Cochstedt he would most definitely disagree.
