Useful information for secondees about Innsbruck.
Innsbruck airport has regular connections to Vienna and Frankfurt. So it is possible to fly directly to Innsbruck via any of these two airports. However, it is usually expensive. Alternatively, on can fly to Munich. There are several options how to get to Innsbruck. Either by train, taking S8 from the Munich Airport and changing at the station Munich East (Ostbahnhof) for any train going to Innsbruck. Alternatively, there is a bus service by Meinfernbus from the Munich Airport to Innsbruck (http://meinfernbus.de). The last possibility is to use Bus Shuttle “Four Season Travel” (https://www.tirol-taxi.at). It must be booked in advance, but will get you directly to the destination address.
Innsbruck is well connected with major neighbouring cities such as Munich, Zurich, Vienna, Verona by fast trains.
