Trains in Europe are a convenient way to travel between cities, with a number of train companies offering domestic and international routes. From early morning to late evening, two trains travel between Innsbruck and Munich every hour. There is a scattering of direct services throughout the day, but the majority of journeys involve 1 or 2 changes. The last train leaves an hour later on Saturdays and Sundays, but otherwise, the weekends follow the same schedule. The service is operated by Deutsche Bahn, with all trains departing from Innsbruck Central Railway Station and terminating at Munich Central Railway Station.
Return trains from Munich to Innsbruck are also available.
Situated on the Sudtiroler Platz next to the Olympic stadium and a 10 minute walk from the historic sights of the pedestrianized city center, the town's Central Station is the departure point for trains from Innsbruck to Munich. Compact and picturesque, the town is easy to negotiate on foot, while the regular “F” shuttle bus will take passengers from the station to Innsbruck Airport in as little as 20 minutes.
The capital of Bavaria is perhaps most famous for its Oktoberfest beer festival and for being the home of Bundesliga topping FC Bayern Munich, but it also boasts a host of other attractions such as the Gothic architecture of its Old Town and the baroque splendours of its Nymphenburg palace. Trains from Innsbruck to Munich arrive at the Central Train Station on Bayerstrasse, an 8 to 12 minute stroll or a brief one stop trip on the S-Bahn from the city centre and the retail destinations of Marientplatz. Available just outside the main exit, the 58 bus connects the station to key locations around the city, while other public transport options include the suburban and underground (S-Bahn and U-Bahn) railway systems and the “Call a Bike” bicycle rental service.
