In this article I talk about how to get to the capital of Tyrol – the city of Innsbruck. How much is a ticket and how to get there by bus, train, car from Munich, Salzburg and Vienna. I will also tell you about Innsbruck Airport and how to get to the city by taxi and public transport.

How to get to Innsbruck from Munich

By car

Between Munich and Innsbruck about 150 km. You can overcome this distance by car in about 2 hours.

By train

The train will be a little more expensive. From 25 € (average 35-39 €). On the way from 1:45 to 2:50. View schedule and ticket prices on

Transfer Munich – Innsbruck

If you arrive at Munich Airport, or prefer transport to public transport, it is better to book a transfer (the transfer is ordered through the website, where you specify the destination address, necessary accessories, for example, a child seat or the need for ski equipment, you will also know the price in advance ) Cost per car from 260 €.

How to get from Salzburg to Innsbruck

By car

The distance between Salzburg and Innsbruck is about 190 km, by car you can overcome this distance in 2 hours 10 minutes if you go by autobahn (on local roads it will be a little longer than 3 hours, but you can admire the Austrian scenery). Do not forget that you need a vignette to travel on Autrian roads (it costs about 8 euros for 10 days), but if you rent a car in Austria, then the vignette should already be in the car. I usually book a car in advance through this site – it turns out to be good to save + Russian-speaking support (they respond to letters very quickly).

By bus

With the help of green buses, Flixbas can also be reached along the Salzburg-Innsbruck route, however, only with a change in Munich. These inconveniences are compensated by the ticket price – from 15 €. See tickets and timetables on the official website of or through the aggregator (it does not always show flights with transfers)

By train

More convenient in the sense that there are direct flights. On the way – 1 hour 48 minutes. The average ticket price is 24-30 €. But I see a promotional ticket for 23 €. Such need to buy in advance. omio from this page threw for purchase on the offsite of the Austrian railway –
