Munich to Salzburg Train Tickets

When you think of travel from Munich to Salzburg by train, think Deutsche Bahn. Every day, the German railway company employs both Eurocity and ÖBB Railjet high-speed trains to shuttle passengers comfortably and smoothly between the two cities, and in less than 2 hours’ time! Both commuters offer Standard and First Class seating, as well as an array of convenient onboard amenities and top-notch services designed to enhance your travel experience.

Beginning in Munich, nestled at the foot of the Bavarian Alps, you’ll revel in the historic city’s unique blend of rural tradition and urban life. When ready, settle into a relaxing seat on the train and then make your way to the restaurant coach for a delicious meal or well-deserved glass of wine. You’ll simply lose yourself in the countryside views from your window! Next stop: Salzburg, where fascinating Baroque-era architecture and surrounding snow-capped mountains are a feast for the eyes.

Purchase your Deutsche Bahn “Paper Ticket and Reservation” here and your seat reservation is included. Because this type of ticket requires shipping, it will be delivered to your home address shortly after your order has been processed. Simply present the physical ticket at the station and you’re ready to travel from Munich to Salzburg by train!
