Driving from Munich Airport to Salzburg and other logistic questions

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

Thanks, all, for your help on my other thread. Now learning more about the areas, I have more detailed logistic questions:

1) How to go from Munich airport to Salzburg? We arrive in Munich from the U.S. on Thurs at 5:30 p.m. Is it easier just to rent a car from the airport to Salzburg for 2 days? If we were to take the regional train, how do we get there from the airport?

2) To drive, how to get an English GPS? Should we get it in in U.S or the car rental place in Germany would have it?

3) To drive in Austria, we do need an International Driver License? What's a convenient place to buy the Austria toll sticker on the drive from Munich to Salsburg?

4) Will traffic out of the airport to Salsburg be bad on Thurs around 7 p.m.?

This will be the first time we're trying to drive in Europe, so any tips you have will be great appreciated! .
