I am trying to plan a day trip down to a couple of sailing areas south of Nuremberg. There are several small towns surrounding this one lake, with Absberg and Pleinfeld being the largest. I want to take a train and then ride my bike around the lake to explore a bit.
I'm thinking about buying a small sailboat, and need to see if getting to this area on a regular basis is logistically realistic.
Does anyone know if there are regular maps that show DB stops and stations? I suppose I could just keep pluging in place names trying to find the closest, but since there seems to be such duplication of names in Germany, that could backfire.
I'm really hoping there is some sort of online map that shows cities/towns, lakes and such, and DB stops.

from the catchily-entitled Bayerische Landvermessungsamt has what you need; this is the official Bavarian mapping agency and their maps are 10 trillion times better than the hopeless Google
Maps. Log on as a guest and you can flick between aerial view and map view - the difference between this and Google is that there are actually things marked on these maps. Like train stations, for example.

Or you can use the network maps from the Deutsche Bahn website; click here
and select "Streckenkarte für Bayern".
