I made the journey from Salzburg to Munich by Intercity train and the experience was thoroughly positive. Departure was on time and the journey was quiet and without any problems. The IC made 5 stops during the journey, which took about 1.5 hours, and then arrived just as punctually at the destination station in Munich. For this route, I am above all very satisfied with the price-performance ratio.

IconThe drivers spoke neither English nor German
I have now travelled with Flixbus from Salzburg to Munich for the third time and I am always pleasantly surprised. The bus had no delays or scratches on the sides of the bus. However, the drivers did not speak English or German, which was a bit of a problem when communicating. The toilets were not so very clean and it was also a bit harsh in the rooms. In summary, the trip was less problematic and I was able to enjoy it.

Dear Sir or Madam, First of all, I would like to inform you that I took a train journey with Deutsche Bahn from Salzburg to Munich. The train arrived in Munich on time. Hygiene was extremely observed in toilets and on the train. There was disinfectant and wet wipes. The staff on the train were very friendly and always had a big smile on their faces. Unfortunately, there was a lot of need to change trains. It was also very noisy on the train and the price was quite expensive. Overall, very good though. Recommendable!

The journey was from Salzburg to Munich on IC 1290, in second class. The train was clean and seemed technically up to date. There was an on-board bistro where coffee and snacks were sold. The service was good and the staff friendly. The journey time was very short overall, which I found positive. Despite a slight delay of just under 10 minutes, I found the journey time to be quite short for the route.

Hello everyone! I recently had a train journey with Deutsche Bahn from Salzburg to Munich. First of all, the price was excellent compared to other providers. The wifi connection was very good. The toilets were very clean and smelled very good. In addition, you could find disinfectant everywhere. The seats were not very comfortable and well maintained. The staff was not friendly. There were also several transfers. Overall, however, a satisfactory trip for the money paid.

I travelled with the IC 1290 second class from Salzburg to Munich. The train departed on time and arrived in Munich on time. The seats were very comfortable and ergonomic. The staff on board offered good service. For example, coffee and chocolate were offered. The train itself could have been cleaner. The bins were full and the floor was sticky in places. Unfortunately, there was no wifi on board.

The journey was from Salzburg to Munich with IC1290. I travelled second class and did not make a reservation. There were still enough seats available so I didn't have to stand, the train facilities were good, I could access the wifi. Run down. On the positive side, the journey was very quick and the train was on time. I can recommend the journey.

For me, this train journey was a 5 out of 5 star because the ticket was very easy and cheap to buy online. The train was also not delayed and I was not obliged to change trains. Another great point would be the good wifi. However, I found the rubbish bins were full, but that wasn't a bad thing.

IconToilet stank
The journey took about 2 hours. We arrived at our destination, Salzburg Hauptbahnhof, with a tiny delay. The toilet was very smelly, but relatively clean. The conductor was friendly to me and the hygiene on the train was excellent. I was able to travel through and didn't have to change trains. Power sockets were available and so was wifi. The train was not properly heated for the first 20 minutes and was relatively cold. But everything was bearable.

Super great train journey: The toilet was completely clean and didn't smell. The train itself was very well cleaned and it didn't stink either. The seats were very comfortable and there were power sockets. The conductor greeted me in a very friendly manner and had a brief chat with me. It was also very quiet in my compartment, which I always find very pleasant because the noise-cancelling headphones don't make that much noise. I was able to travel through very relaxed and didn't have to change trains.
