Choosing in favor of a train ride for a connection from Austria's beautiful Salzburg to the Bavarian city of Munich is a wise choice as the modern trains, running on the Salzburg - Munich route, cover the distance in less than two hours. What is more, the fast modern trains are well equipped and offer comfortable seats, ample luggage space, and plenty of departures to select from.


How long is the train ride from Salzburg to Munich?

Taking a EuroCity express train or a Railjet high-speed train is among the fastest and most convenient ways to travel between Austria’s scenic Salzburg and charming Munich in Germany. Both trains are modern and well-equipped, offer several daily departures to choose from, and boast the shortest travel times (1 hr 40 min and 1 hr 30 min respectively).

What time does the first train from Salzburg to Munich leave?

As mentioned above, choosing in favor of travel on modern high-speed trains over regular trains is a great time-saving solution. The first high-speed Railjet train leaves at 8:17 a.m. while the earliest EuroCity train takes off to the Munchen Hbf Station at 10:17 a.m.

What time does the last train from Salzburg to Munich leave?

The last daily departure of the EuroCity Salzburg to Munich express train is scheduled for 8:29 p.m. and the last Railjet train for the day leaves at 7:26 p.m.

Can I use a Bayern ticket from Salzburg to Munich?

A Bayern ticket allows a group of up to 5 adults to unlimitedly travel by any regional Bavarian train for one day. This ticket also covers several destinations outside the Bavaria region, including Salzburg, Kufstein, Reutte, and Ulm as well as allows to travel by the U-Bahn underground trains, S-Bahn suburban trains, public buses and trams in almost all major Bavarian cities. The downside of purchasing the Bayern ticket is that it doesn’t cover the high-speed and long-distance trains, such as Railjet and EuroCity, and is valid for a restricted time slot, from 9 a.m. to 3 a.m. of the following day on the weekdays and from 12 a.m. till 3 a.m.of the following day on weekends and public holidays. Although it’s possible to get from Salzburg to Munich using Bayern, travelers who value their time and personal comfort favor either Railjet or Eurocity high-speed trains for the journey, boasting fast travel times, the best onboard amenities, and an extensive schedule, not tied to a specific time frame.
