Getting to Innsbruck-Igls, Austria for your Skiing and Snowboarding Holiday

The village of Igls sits above the city of Innsbruck, six kilometres away. The resort is only a short ride from Innsbruck Airport and two hours from Munich, Germany, the location of the nearest international airport. There are train connections all the way from London but the most convenient option is to fly into Innsbruck and take the free Skibus.

The nearest international airport is Munich's FJ Strauss Airport, which receives flights the world over and has a direct rail link with the city. Five trains a day make the three-hour journey to Innsbruck from where the free, hourly Skibus goes to Igls. Alternatively, Innsbruck Airport has direct flights from London, Amsterdam, Paris and Frankfurt, among others, with a bus transfer from the terminal.

If you are travelling by car from the UK, Calais is over 1,100kms from Igls; although major highways line the route, tolls work out fairly expensive. From Munich Airport, take the Munich bypass and head south on the A-8 and A-93, and then take the A-12 southwest to Innsbruck. From the A-12 at Innsbruck, take the L-33 south to Igls. From Innsbruck Airport, Igls is 10kms along the B-174 and L-33.

If you want to travel by train from London, take the Eurostar which leaves Waterloo Station at 17:09 daily. An overnight train leaves from Paris' gare de l'Est to Munich, from where five Eurocity trains go to Innsbruck daily, taking three hours. If your connections are good, you'll be in Innsbruck at 11:20, local time. From here, take the free Skibus to Igls.
