Germany and its neighbour of Austria are pretty great destinations for any trip – great beer, great skiing, great trains, and with this route from Munich to Mayrhofen, you can experience all three! The German capital of beer is only two and a half hours from one of Austria’s best ski resorts, so why not combine the two for an action-packed trip? Start with a bit of city slicking in Munich. Marienplatz, the central square is a great place to start, with stunning surroundings including the Neues Rathaus, just try to be there at one of the three occasions throughout the day when it’s cuckoo clock dances to life! Hofbräuhaus lets you get into the spirit of things, being a traditional German beerhall that you can enjoy even outside of Oktoberfest. If you want a more sober pastime, the Glyptothek museum is a gorgeous destination both inside and out, with a collection of free-to-explore ancient sculpture. Fit some of Munich’s best attractions in before heading for the train station (time saved because you don’t have to rush to an airport to sit around for 3 hours), then head to Mayrhofen!
You’ll travel by Deutsche Bahn’s Intercity (IC), Intercity-Express (ICE) or EC trains, all of them offering easy, comfy and spacious passage just over the border. You’ll have just enough time to get your snow boots on and get ready to hit the slopes. The area is also known to be musically inclined, so you can expect a great nightlife scene with live music too. Austria’s steepest slope is also located in this area – the Harakiri. So, even if it’s all downhill from here, at least you lived it up by going by train!
