Transport from Paris to Salzburg and return

Hi,

Could you please advise whether the best way to travel (4 adults and 5 children at Christmas time) from Paris to Salzburg would be the train system. If so, which train would be the best option?

We have been advised hiring a car would not be the best option, is this right.

Thanks

Hiring a car - you would need at least two - with that many people would be rather expensive and tiring.

By train you can get the overnight train to Munich www.bahn.de - you could get two couchette compartments. Buy tickets as soon as you can as the cheapest tickets go first.

From Munich then get a regional train to Salzburg using Bayern Tickets.

Alternatively go via Zuerich on the day train - you can get tickets from €25 from Paris to Zuerich on www.tgv-europe.com but don't let yourself be redirected to the very expensive Rail Europe, and then www.oebb.at from Zuerich to Salzburg from €29. Again, the cheapest tickets go first.

For a good overview of times see www.idos.cz (English bottom right)
