Hi folks,

Wondering if anyone knows how to get to Worgl from Munich Airport.

I believe it will take two trains, but what are the name of the stops? Is there a site for booking tickets?

Rebelski,
I had a look for you on raileurope.co.uk and it says only one train, time taken 1 hr 10 minutes from Munich to Worgl, cost for one way ticket £29.

You might have to use raileurope.com rather than .co.uk seeing as you live in Cork to book the tickets.

You could also use German rail website, www.bahn.de . You can book online and print off tickets but sometimes not when it is international, they post them.

The Euro29 ticket, or 39 for international, are first come first served, so do not rely on getting this price unlesse you prebook (with a reservation for a particular train, a problem if flight is late). But Worgl is so close that probably the price is ok if you book on the day at Munich airport railway booking office.

Flying to Innbsbruck would probably be easier, public bus or taxi to station, then train, Austrian railways www.oebb.at

On the railway site just do Muenchen Flughaen Terminal - Woergl Hbf (or Wörgl Hbf if your keyboard has umlaut....), it gives you possible routes. Some routes from Muenchen Hauptbahnhof are direct, others you change, but in all cases it is a 30km ride from the airport to the Hauptbahnhof (10 euros if booked on its own), which is why Innsbruck (Easyjet) or even Salzburg (Ryanair) are good options, with airport close to town, esp. in Ibk.

To avoid having to change at Munich main station I highly recommend spending a little extra and booking http://www.airport-transfer.com/ minibus / shared taxi service Munich or Salzburg airport-Innsbruck, not sure whether they would stop in Worgl, but you could ask, I think they speak good English, and have an office in Munich airport.

PS I can confirm I have ordered tickets online from German railways website, both to print off, and some which had to be posted to UK (which they only allow with about 10 days notice), and it worked well.

The Austrian rail website looks the same as the German, but prices are sometimes different for the same journey, maybe owing to each having a fixed quota of special offer tickets...

Innsbrucker,
That does make Munich airport a bit annoying, if you want to get a train on to your ski resort. It seems that it takes the airport link train 45 minutes to travel the 30 km from the airport to Munich main station - a bit like Gatwick etc. I suppose.

Yea, they planned a super-fast mono-rail or some kind of Japanese style train suspended in a magnetic field. Merkel announced it amidst fanfares. However, having bailed out the banks, as far as I know the German govt. decided that they could no longer spare the odd 2 billion or whatever it was going to cost.

Ally, Inns,

Thanks for that, really appreciate it.

Going to have to go the train route, taxi's for 2 working out at €250 plus!!

Innsbrucker, one question, with Soll as my final destination, is Worgl Hbf the closest station?

Thanks again folks

Taxi is dear, I did find a Turkish taxi firm in Munich who will undercut normal prices, but it was still expensive. It is worth calling those guys I mentioned with their airport taxi-minibus http://www.airport-transfer.com/ to see if they will stop at Worgl, but they do go to Kufstein, surely they are cheaper than that? I have used them, they are known to be reliable. Munich-Innsbruck they charge about Euro40, a bit less if you book a return.

I don't know best station. Looking at the map, Kufstein seems equally near, and it is a bigger town with more direct trains.
