It doesn't have to be near the main train station. Much depends as to EXACTLY where you are going in Austria and how you intended to travel.

Also EXACTLY what is your "family of teenage children". Numbers matter not just in the Hotel choice but also rail tickets. There are family group discounts. Booking in advance on www.bahn.de you can get large discounts on Intercity services and if 2 adults travelling often kids go free.

In addtion if only going to Salzburg then you can use the Bayern Ticket

BAYERN TICKET

the Bayern Ticket. Costs €22 for 1 person then €4 for each additional person up to a total of 5 people. Gives you UNLIMITED use of ALL Regional public transport in Bavaria. Includes ALL Regional trains (includes all Regional trains from Munich to Salzburg - there is a train every hour and the journey takes 2hrs), ALL Regional buses and ALL city transport in Munich, Augsburg and Nürnberg.

Only the fast ICE, IC, EC and RJ Railjet trains are excluded

Valid from 9am weekdays (midnight weekends) until 3am the following morning

Full T&Cs and click on Bayern

bahn.de/i/…laender-ticket.shtml

Again if only 2 adults then kids go free on the Bayern Ticket

Many trains to "Austria" also call at the Ostbahnhof. The Ostbahnhof is on the S8 from the Airport.

All the S-Bahns run through the centre of the city and it is easy to get a S-Bahn every 2 or 3 minutes to take you to either the Hauptbahnhof or Ostbahnhof.

Suggest you give your EXACT itinerary, EXACT family size/ages and what type/number of Hotel rooms you want then better to advise

Consider the Residence Inn. It's a few minutes' walk from the Ostbahnhof, a major station with a train line directly from the airport and easy connections to Austria. The rooms are suite-style with sofa beds that work well for families. We stayed there this past summer and were very pleased with it.

Assume you mean St Anton am Arlberg.

There is no direct train from Munich to St Anton. You will need to change at Innsbruck or Bregenz depending on the service you choose.

For 22nd December the cheapest service on www.bahn.de is the 07:17 from Munich Hauptbahnhof over Bregenz (4h23mins) at €39. For all 5 of you the total is €156

The faster journey over Innsbruck (3h27) is only available at full pice €215.60 e.g. 09:31 from Hauptbahnhof 09:40 from Ostbahnhof

Depending on which service you choose may determine easiest place to stay

Triples a bit harder to find especially in these more modern properties.

e.g. the Residence Inn suggested above will do a "triple" but 1 bed is a sofa bed but as it is only one night may be a good option

www.marriott.de/reservation/rateListMenu.mi

There is a Motel One "Munich City Ost" on the same street and do kids up to 12 free. Normally only advertise doubles so how the "kids up to 12 in same room " works I don't know

motel-one.com/en/…hotelinfo

Around Rosenheimerplatz which is 1 stop on the S-Bahn from the Ostbahnhof (couple of minutes) is another Motel One "Deutsches Museum", the Hilton, a Novotel and the Holiday Inn.

As I said earlier all the S-Bahns run through the city between Ostbahnhof and Hauptbahnhof, including the S8 from the Airport, which means there is a train roughly every 3mins

The S-Bahns in the city to the Hauptbahnhof or Ostbahnhof are included as part of your rail ticket so if you have prebooked your tickets to St Anton you can just jump on the S-Bahn (e.g. from Rosenheimerplatz) to the Ostbahnhof or Hauptbahnhof.

The S-Bahns only take 9mins to get from Ostbahnhof to Hauptbahnhof

Network Map

mvv-muenchen.de/fileadmin/…netz_2012_en.pdf

MUNICH AIRPORT TO THE CITY

Just buy the "Airport City day Ticket - Partner"

Costs €20 and gives a group of up to 5 people UNLIMITED use of the enitre Munich Public transport system. That is all S-Bahns, U-Bahn, Trams and buses. Valid from time of purchase until 6am the following morning.

This ticket is EXACTLY the same in cost and validity as the "Partner Tageskarte - Gesamtnetz" - Partner Day ticket Entire Network - except it comes pre-validated to help tourists. All other tickets have to be stamped in a blue box at your first point of transport to validate them.

mvv-muenchen.de/en/…index.html

This means after you arrive at your hotel and checked in simply go out again and continue using Munichs public transport system for the rest of the day. Just simply hop on/off whatever you want. There are no barriers or ticket machines to put your ticket through. No further validation (ticket was prevalidated and tickets are only validated once). You don't show your ticket to the bus/tram driver. All done on an honesty basis. There are sometimes random ticket inspections
