Traveling from US to Innsbruck and eventually, Prague

Hi,

What is the best route in planning to fly from the U.S. to Innsbruck? how long is the train ride from Vienna to Innsbruck? We plan to visit the Innsbruck area and make our way to Vienna via train and then onto Prague where we will fly out from. Thanks!

Use one of the numerous travel websites in order to find flights to Innsbruck. Alternatively, you can also consider flying into Munich and continuing to Innsbruck from there (what is easy by the way). Info on train travel in Austria as well as Vienna to Prague can be found here: www.oebb.at/en

Munich to Innsbruck is less than 2 hours by train whereas Vienna to Innsbruck is over 4 hours so it makes sense to fly into Munich if you can't get flights to Innsbruck. Then it's a logical flow from Innsbruck to Vienna then on to Prague.

Use a flight search engine like www.kayak.com; do open jaw searches.

As ATL serves pretty much every airline in the world, you will be able to get to Europe in one flight, then from that entry point you should be able to get to Innsbruck. I just did a dummy search and found itineraries with one stop on Lufthansa and KLM, going through Frankfurt and Amsterdam, respectively. This will be more expensive, though, than flying directly into Munich or Zurich and taking the train.

Thanks for the info. I think we'll try flying into Munich and taking the scenic train down to Innsbruck. Do you know if I would need to purchase train tickets in advance?

That makes complete sense and seems like the train may be scenic as well. Would you know if I need to purchase tickets for the train in advance?
