Train journey may take about 1 1/2 hours.

Popular way to visit for the races as parking and highway conjestion can be a problem.

Some special trains are added just for the fans with a stop relatively close to the finish areas .

The rail system here sometimes sells combi tickets for admission and rail transport and you can check these as it comes closer to the race time.

www.oebb.at

You can also investigate

the einfachraus rail ticket - currently 28 euro for use by 2 traveling together for a full day - restrictions apply as to time travelled -

and trains. - ( regional trains only weekday time restrictions after 9 but none on weekends )

current fare for a regular one way 2nd class ticket is just under 18 euro

As you travel within Tyrol (a region of Austria) there will be even cheaper fares than the ÖBB-fares (which are not valid, beside of the Einfach-Raus-Ticket):

Single ticket Innsbruck-Kitzbühel € 13,80

Day ticket Innsbruck-Kitzbühel € 27,60

Week ticket € 40 (which would be the cheapest!)

These fares are for all means of public transport between Innsbruck Hbf. (main railway station) and Kitzbühel. You can use all means of public transport.

If you want to travel in Innsbruck too (tram, bus) you can add the city zone of Innsbruck (in german: Kernzone Innsbruck) for € 0,90 (single ticket) € 2,50 (dayticket) or € 8,50 (weekticket).

The weekticket is valid for 7 days from the moment you buy it.

If you plan to travel more accross Tyrol you can also get the Tirol-Ticket for € 53 which allows unlimited travel by public transport anywhere in Tyrol for 7 days.

Thanks Robbi good information! Think I'll buy the €40 ticket do you know if this limits you to certain times or is it any train any time? and would i buy it at the ticket office at Innsbruck Hbf or on line?

Thanks once again!

No, a week ticket is valid for the day you buy it and the 6 following days on all means of public transport, all day long.

Mind that this ticket without the "city option" (Kernzone) does not entitle you to change means of public transport inside the city of Innsbruck (only good on the train to/from the main railway station) If you want use public transport in Innsbruck you should add the city option (Kernzone).

You can not buy this ticket online but from ticket windows, ticket machines, regional bus drivers and so on...

If you want more information about public transport in Tirol, have a look at the VVT (public transport association) website: www.vvt.at ---> language options on the right bottom

OK thanks, last question, does the week ticket or weekly Tirol ticket require a passport size photo for it?

Nope, it is just a small sheet of paper. It is also transferable to other people...
