Beuron is a small city in southern Germany. Almost a typical small little town, with not too much on offer. Which is more than great if you want a time-out from daily life. Beuron is an ideal starting point to go hiking. May you want to do a longer-stretched multi-day hike, or just a casual day hike or half-day hike? The idyllic area around Beuron in southern Germany offers you all of this. Besides outdoor activities, the city is known for the Archabbey and the Art School for religious art. But more for the picturesque Limestones which form a stunning valley. It is not without reason that it forms the centre of the Upper Danube Nature Park. The Danube spring is not too far from Beuron either. So, if you want to travel to Beuron, there are two main modes of transportation. By train or my individual car ride.

How to get to Beuron by public transportation/train
This might sound a bit surprising to some, but the small town of Beuron has its own train station. Not a big one and only regional trains stop in Beuron, but it’s there. You can travel directly from Ulm, Donaueschingen, Sigmaringen, and Villingen-Schwenningen without having to change trains in between journeys. The travel time from Ulm is about 1:37 hours and from Sigmaringen a mere 25 minutes.
