As long as you don't have a German bank account the answer is: yes

You can also go to the counter or use a ticket machine. For normal price tickets there is no difference where you buy from. Discounted specials are cheaper if bought online or from ticket machines.

Depending on departure date you can fly for less than a train fare.

check Fly Niki/ Air Berlin


transfer bus from airport to city center is 6 euro.

I don't think that FlyNiki/AirBerlin offer flights incl. all charges for € 29 as the German railways do.

I just checked FlyNiki/Air Berlin and their cheapest flight was € 1, but they add charges, then the price is € 29 and finally they add a "service-charge" (a charge for the pleasure to buy a ticket from them) of € 10. So the cheapest is € 39, but available only if you book months in advance. Then add € 9,20 for the S-Bahn from Munich Hbf. to the airport and € 6 for the Airport bus in Vienna and you get a fare of € 54,20.

And the train (about 4 hours on the fastest trains) takes you from A to B in less time than the plane.
