Innsbruck is easy to reach from all directions by all means of transport. We've put together some useful tips for your journey to Innsbruck. Please travel as eco-friendly as possible to contribute to our Green Meeting ambitions!

  •  By train

Relaxing, comfortable and safe – ideal rail connections and attractive rates make Innsbruck a great destination for eco-conscious train travellers. Travelling by rail is one of the best ways to guarantee plenty of time and space to enjoy the stunning scenery of Innsbruck and Tyrol. The main train station in Innsbruck is just a short walk from the city centre. The train station has lockers for your luggage, as well as supermarkets, cafes, bistros, fast-food restaurants, bakeries, newsagents and ATMs.

  • By plane

Innsbruck Airport is located on the western edge of the city and offers comfort and short transfers – it’s only a 15min bus ride into the city centre. Flights to destinations such as Amsterdam, Frankfurt or Vienna (including connections on Star Alliance flights to multiple further European destinations) are operated regularly and up to several times a day. The flight schedule can be found here: https://www.innsbruck-airport.com/en/passengers-visitors/flying/timetable

Munich International Airport can also serve as a convenient hub for you journey, serving almost all important European destinations. From Munich Airport it’s only a 2:30hrs hop to Innsbruck, which can be done by train, coach or individual transfer.

We are planning to get the meeting certified according to the green event basic standard. We will therefore not provide any handouts, printed materials or promotional materials. We would also ask you to choose to travel as environmentally friendly as possible. Innsbruck can be reached very well by train (from Eastern Europe vie Vienna, from Switzerland, from Germany and Italy). Should you have to fly, consider taking a direct flight to Munich and going by train from there instead of connecting in Vienna or Frankfurt to Innsbruck.
