Travel Info/Map

How does one best travel to Austria? Airports include Salzburg, Innsbruck, Klagenfurt, and Linz. Depending on your destination, Munich or Friedrichshafen (in Germany) or Zurich (in Switzerland) are also good options. In Austria, you will rarely find a train station in the resort. The distances from the different train stations and airports to the resorts are shown above the map. Those travelling by car will find a link to a route planner in the lower lefthand corner of the map. Simply enter your origin location and a route will be calculated for you. Please note, that it is wise to be informed about the closure of mountain passes during the winter months! Please also take into consideration that your car is required to be equipped for winter conditions, and that you will need snow chains with you.

  • By train: St. Johann in Tyrol (approx. 10 km), Kufstein (approx. 20 km), Wörgl (approx. 25 km)
  • By plane: Salzburg (approx. 75 km), Innsbruck (approx. 90 km), Munich (approx. 155 km)
