How to get around and find best means of local transportation?

"Hi. I'm just wondering if you have to buy bus ticket at the bus station or on the bus from the driver. And I'm also interested whether you ask for the bus ticket by the area you are about to go or by the number/name of the bus stop you wanna get off. Thank you for your help! Regards. Andrea" (posted 07/15/2016)

You can buy the bus ticket Directly from the driver. You say what bus stop you want to go to, and the bus driver then prints the ticket for the correct zone did you need. If you're not sure which bus stop you need, you can tell the bus driver the area, and he will tell you Which bus stop is did. In the Stuttgart region, you can put in your travel plans on the public transport website http://en.vvs.de/home/ and it will show you the prices for the tickets. On the website you can see if a day ticket (day ticket) or ticket for 4 rides (Mehrfahrtenkarte) would be cheaper than a single ticket. Those kind of tickets need to be punched at the orange / yellow boxes on the bus. So There are vending machines (in English) at trainstations to get tickets. You can put in the zone you need or your destination, and the machine will figure out the right ticket for you.

Hello Andrea. If the bus station, a machine is, so you can also buy a ticket there. In general, you can but directly a ticket get (that does not apply to trains / S-Bahn) also from the bus driver. The price is calculated according to zones through which you want to jump in the VVS area. But it also is enough to mention the bus driver the goal / the stop. He says one then the fare.

Things to See in Plochingen

Close to the railway station is a Hundertwasserhaus, designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser and built in 1992. As this house should "not disturb the traditional skyline of the town", unlike other Hundertwasserhauses, the house is rather conventional outside, but has a significant, typical tower. The interior court however is typical and it is worth going there and have a look.




Haus Gablenberg

Hundertwasserhaus „Wohnen unterm Regenturm“

Rathaus (1900) and Städtischen Galerie

Katholische Kirche St. Konrad
