A Day Ticket Solo, valid for the entire transportation network from midnight to midnight, costs 5.10€. You can purchase tickets from machines next to major stops.

Walking along Konigstrasse and its extensions into the marketplace and Rathaus square—essentially, across the length of the old town from the Hauptbahnhof the Kaiserburg (the city’s medieval castle)—will take you only about 30 minutes and will lead you through the city’s medieval core and past most of its historic monuments. For a taxi, call tel. 0911/19410. The base fare and first kilometer cost 2.70€ each, while each additional kilometer adds on 1.35€.
