Travel by taxi

The larger towns and cities have lots of taxi ranks and taxis can also be hailed in the street. If the yellow taxi sign on the roof is lit up, the taxi is available for hire. However, in smaller towns and areas with little traffic it is advisable to order a taxi in advance from one of the taxi offices. The telephone numbers are in the telephone directory. If you flag down an unoccupied taxi in the street and only want to travel a short distance, you can agree an inexpensive "short trip fare" (Kurzstrecke) with the driver. With this one exception, taxis are bound by the applicable tariff regulation.
Wherever you are in Germany, you can order a taxi from your mobile on +49 (0)172 22 118 (€0.69 per min. plus roaming charges).
