As you are planning, remember that the hotels listed in our itineraries are our primary hotels and are - in rare cases - subject to change. Before you make arrangements, check with us if your tour departure is guaranteed. If your tour departure is out further than 6 months, please also check with us as there might be slight changes to the itinerary.
The below information will help you plan your arrival. For more tips or other routes, you might like Rome2Rio. The fare and timing information listed below is approximate.
We recommend flying into the Munich Airport (MUC). You can also fly into the Frankfurt Airport (FRA).
If you arrive at Munich and continue to Passau
- *Public bus No. 635 from Munich Airport to Freising Bahnhof (20 min/Eur 2.90), or taxi (15 min/EUR 16)
- *Train from Freising to Passau Hbf (2 hours/fares vary), no pre-booking necessary.
- Taxi (see point 2 under Frankfurt arrival below)
*Note: For the above train trip, we suggest purchasing a regional day ticket valid on the bus and regional trains. You can purchase it at one of the vending machines or at the desk from a person, both run cooperatively by the German Railway and the MVV (Munich transit company). This ticket is also a great option for your train trip from Munich to Passau if you plan to stop over in Munich.
If you arrive at Frankfurt and continue to Passau
- **Train from Frankfurt am Main Flughafen to Passau Hbf (4.5 hours/fares vary)
- Taxi or walk from Passau central station to the Day 1 Hotel (5 min/EUR 7)
**Note: Depart from the AIRail Terminal, next to Terminal 1. Frankfurt Airport is a very busy transportation hub and it is advisable to purchase train tickets with a seat reservation in advance. If you buy a flexible ticket in advance and miss your intended train, it still means that you will have to purchase a new seat reservation separately upon arrival. Purchasing your ticket and seat reservations upon arrival does offer the most flexibility. However, if trains are full, you will have to wait.
Look up German train schedules at Bahn.de or Trainline.eu. Questions? See our information on taking trains in Europe here or ask us.
Your trip ends on the final day around 12 noon back at the hotel.

We recommend flying out of the Vienna Airport (VIE).
From the Ending Hotel to the Vienna Airport
We work hard to maintain consistency across all of our tours, but some trips have unique differences. Here are some things to keep in mind about this tour.
We use charming and modern hotels but A/C or fans may not always be available since they haven't been needed traditionally. Read more on the use of air conditioning in Europe here.
Separated twin beds are rare in many places; instead there will be two mattresses together that sit on the same base.
