Shouldn't be a lot because it's only like an hour away.

its across borders so is a bit more, even tho only 1.5 hours - 28 euros.

Cheapest way to do it is to buy Bavaria-Ticket. 19 EUR if you go alone, 27 EUR if you are 2-5 people. Ask for this ticket at the DB ticket counter in Salzburg train station. Note that you cannot use all available trains, just the regional ones. But the clerk can print you a schedule of the trains you can use, ask for it. Travel time is roughly 2 hours.

Redpaddy, where did you find that info? And to what method of travel does it refer to? I only know about Bavaria-Ticket and Mitfahrzentrale, is there anything else?

Just did it and it was 18 Euros by train. I just took the very first train, so there may be cheaper or more expensive options that are milk runs or more direct.....

Checking the DBAHN website....25 Euros.


Come on, let this one slide....I'm not shilling for German railways!!!!

Cheers TP and actually you guys are giving me real tiem info :)

Milk runs being school runs?

I assume that milk runs are small trains that stop everywhere, which is true for the cheap RE or RB trains on the Munich-Salzburg line.

For the EC trains that go the same route and stop only in Munich and Salzburg you have to pay the EC/IC/ICE surcharge of 7 EUR, adding to your ticket price. Thus EC 25 EUR, RE train 18 EUR.

Bavaria-Ticket is cheapest if you go in a group or for a day trip from Munich to Salzburg, as it allows unlimited train travel in Bavaria on regional trains after 9 am.

It costs 27 EUR if you are 2-5 people, so with Bavaria-Ticket and 5 people travelling together it is only 5.40 EUR for Munich-Salzburg return.

You can stand on the platform in Munich next to the train to Salzburg, looking for a group of people travelling with Bavaria-Ticket to Salzburg. If they are less than 5 they are usually happy to take you along with them, you'll normally have to pay 6-10 EUR for the favour.
