Every weekday, there are 8 direct trains from Munich to Innsbruck. All of them are operated by Deutsche Bahn, and the first leaves Munich Hauptbahnhof at 4:53 a.m. After that, there are five morning departure times and three more in the afternoon, with the last train leaving at 6:58 p.m. The journey time to Innsbruck varies from 1 hour 53 minutes to 3 hours, so check the schedule before traveling. There are also some relatively fast services with a couple of changes, and these might be worth considering as well.
Return trains from Innsbruck to Munich are also available.
All trains between Munich and Innsbruck leave from Munich's Hauptbahnhof. The Hauptbahnhof has a very central location, and is a transport hub for the city's Metro system, making it very easy to reach. From the city center, take lines S1, S2 or S4 from Karlsplatz or Marienplatz. The journey takes a couple of minutes, and trams and buses are also available if you prefer to travel above ground. The S8 train service also runs from Munich airport straight to the Hauptbahnhof, and takes half an hour. The Metro runs until 1:00 a.m., while the S8 leaves every 20 minutes throughout the day.
Innsbruck is the capital of the Austrian Tirol, a beautiful region of dramatic Alpine valleys, soaring peaks and world-famous ski slopes. The city itself possesses over a thousand years of history, fine food and extraordinary views from the Bergisel Ski Jump. All trains from Munich get into Innsbruck Hauptbahnhof, which is just to the east of the city center. From there, you can walk into the historic center or catch a bus from just outside the arrivals hall. During ski season, shuttle buses also operate from the station, so check to see if your resort offers such a service.
