The timetable of the BOB can be found here (as you will see the train ride between Munich and Tegernsee takes about 1 hour). After arriving at the final stop "Tegernsee", please take a taxi to Ringberg Castle. If you do not see a taxi waiting at the train station, you could call Taxi Kaufmann: + 49 - (0)8022 - 5555.
