By train from Munich to Salzburg for the guided tour

Are you planning a holiday in Munich and want to visit Salzburg for a day or two? I offer you my transfer service by eight-seat minivan from Munich city and the airport to Salzburg and reverse. However, taking the train is a more economical way to get to Salzburg. Munich city is 150 kilometers from Salzburg and the airport is 180 kilometers away. 


If you decide to use the railway I recommend the Bayern Ticket for traveling by train in Bavaria. It is valid for all public transportation in Bavaria on weekdays from 9 am to 3 am and on weekends and holidays from midnight to midnight. The Bavarian Ticket can be purchased in the airport or train station ticket offices for the price of 27 EUR (Tarif 2023) + 2 EUR of the service fee or without the service fee on the Deutsche Bahn website BAHN.DE and from a ticket machine. 27 EUR is the basic price for the first passenger. If there are several travelers, every next person pays 9 EUR more (Tarif 2023). Children under 14 travel free with accompany of their parents or close relatives. 


From the airport of Munichruns express train S8 to Munich Central Station every 20 minutes. If you go directly to Salzburg, get off at the penultimate station: Munich Ostbahnhof. Then, you change to a direct train to Salzburg with the same Bayern Ticket. Travel time from Munich to Salzburg is 1 hour and 45 minutes. 


If you visit Salzburg for just one day, you should make the best use of your time. For that purpose, I offer you my services as a professional guide. The following tours are suitable for a one-day visit:

1. Salzburg walking tour is the best way to get first impressions of the city in a short time. Duration 2 - 2.5 hours.

2. Salzburg city tour with museums. To explore Salzburg in more detail is recommended to visit Mozart´s birth house and take the funicular up to the Fortress Hansalzburg. Duration 3.5 - 4 hours.

3. Salzburg city tour on foot and by car. Besides the highlights of the Old Town, the tour will also allow you to see the most interesting sights outside the historical center. Duration 3.5 - 4 hours. 

4. City tour of Salzburg + Lake District Salzkammergut. Full-day program. You´ll have to arrive in Salzburg as early as possible.




I will send you details of the tour and a quote as soon as I receive your inquiry.
