Planning a Trip
Two and three trains per hour (many express) arrive in Kitzbühel from Innsbruck (trip time: 60 min.) and Salzburg (trip time: 2 1/2 hr.). For rail information, contact tel. 05/1717 (www.oebb.at).
Although it's serviced by at least nine local bus lines running into and up the surrounding valleys, most visitors arrive in Kitzbühel by train. The most useful of these bus lines runs every 30 to 60 minutes between Kitzbühel and St. Johann in Tyrol (trip time: 25 min.). In addition, about half a dozen buses travel every day from Salzburg's main railway station to Kitzbühel (trip time: 2 1/4 hr.). For regional bus information, call tel. 05356/62715.
