Take the train from Salzburg to Munich Ostbahnhof (east station). This station is right before the train goes on to Munich Hauptbahnhof (main station).
Get off the train and then take the S-8 train to the airport.
Usually, the two trains use the very same platform (opposite sides), so you just walk about 6 feet (2 meters) to change trains.
You'll probably get the best train fare by using the Bayern Ticket. Buy it at the Deutsche Bahn ticket office at the Salzburg train station.
Bayern ticket can be purchased in Salzburg from any of the DB Bahn, ÖBB, or Meridian ticket machines. No need to use a ticket office.
Bayern valid only on regional express trains which as of last December are run by a company called Meridian.
For timetables use
Trains marked as DPN = Meridian trains that the Bayern is valid for.
Please be aware of Bayern ticket terms and conditions of use.
I struggled with this. I wanted to get from Munich airport to Salzburg. option 1 was to take train/metro into Munich train station and then catch train. but if we were late arriving we would have to wait 2+ hours to get next train. after a full day of flying from USA via LHR that wasn't very exciting to me. I found a wonderful service (no thanks to my travel agent) called SMS http://www.flughafentransfer.at/
kiosk in the airport. greeted me as I walked up. the 3 of us taken right to van for easy drive right to hotel in Salzburg. about 60 euros each.
the same in reverse was available
I don't understand this unless you were arriving in the early hours as from early morning the trains run half hourly reducing to hourly later in the evening.
The Meredian trains run hourly all day. Munich - Salzburg.
depends on when you are going if you look on the web sites of the German or Austrian trains You can find tickets from 19€ each and yes you get the train to munich ost then the s8 to the airport which is very easy to do
