Hi! The most convenient and fast way from Munich Airport to Innsbruck is definately by train.
--> Internat. Guests
--> Timetable - Tickets
FROM: MUC (or München Airport Terminal)
The S-Bahn-train starts directly under the airport terminal. You have to change trains at Munich East Station (München Ostbahnhof) which is very convenient as this is a much smaller station than Munich main railway station (München Hauptbahnhof). You can get your tickets at the airport or online, and they will be sent to you.
thanks very much for the quick and informative post!
No problem, you're welcome!
Just for information: 2nd class will be fine, especially for this relatively short journey.
If you are ready to spend some more time on the route - there are two rail lines between Munich and Innsbruck. One of them goes through Kufstein, it takes an fast EC train about 2 hours, but is far less scenic. Another one goes through Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Mittenwald and has only local trains on it. The journey takes about 3 hours, but is probably cheaper. It is definitely much more scenic. If you want to make sure that you use a certain one of those routes, just enter "Kufstein" or "Mittenwald" into the "Via" box on the Deutsche Bahn schedule planner.
thanks for the info. I will check this out.
Just found your info, am interested in scenic train from Munich airport to Innsbruck but finding web site difficult to negotiate - it seems to be telling me I have to make 4 changes on this route?and will not let me see the return schedule for the Sunday. Help
I really don´t understand what you are doing! Bahn.de gives me all the times and prices, except if you are looking at 2010 or some such. Of course you can try www.oebb.at as well.
Also PLEASE read the rest of the thread
Thanks. I wanted the scenic route anyway.
