Arriving in Kempten2018-07-05T09:57:01+00:00

Upon arrival at Kempten Railway Station you might want to take a taxi to your accomodation. There are also buses, but on Sundays not really many.
Buses and taxis depart directly in front of Kempten Railway Station. ZUM is the main bus terminal in the city centre.

If you stay in Hotel Fürstenhof, take one of the buses to ZUM. From there it is 400 metres by foot through the pedestrian zone. Bus No 6 connects ZUM with “Rathaus” (town hall), but unfortunately not very often. Without luggage everything in the city is within walking distance. So upon arrival a taxi might be the best choice.

Tickets for the bus are available directly in the bus. Please ask the driver. They also offer day and week passes. A day ticket for Zone Zero (Zone NULL in German) is 3,50 € and within Zone Zero you can go wherever you want how often you want. All accomodations except HOSTEL ALEX are within Zone Zero.
