Travel between Munich and Kaprun (Nov Friday or Sun)

I have potential flights to Munich landing 4 pm on Friday or 9 pm on this Sunday and want to travel to Kaprun. I know there is a train, but I would appreciate some local advice about how straightforward it is, with bags etc. and whether it is possible to travel late on the Sunday, or will I need to find an overnight stop. (Any hostels anyone would recommend!)

I would be v grateful for any advice. Thanks in anticipation.

Munich - Kaprun

S Bahn from airport to Munich main railway station

Express train Munich - Salzburg

Regional Express Salzburg - Zell am See

Bus to Kaprun

Travel time got to be about 4.5 Hours

If you land at 16:00 you would arrive late evening. Maybe as late as 22:00 if you allow time to get bags and pass through customs.

If you land at 21:00 stay overnight in Munich.

Any reason for Kaprun? Long way to travel from Munich.

Thanks for the reply. My reason for travelling to Kaprun via Munich is that I am in the north west of England, and there are no flights to Salzburg until mid December. I have not discovered a better way to get there. Is there another airport I should look at landing at in either Austria or elsewhere, with flights in November from Manchester, Liverpool or anywhere else in the north of England?

many thanks for your help so far.

thank you so much for your help,

All these days I am looking for best dates -prices and finally decided to travel on 22-29 March 2014.

on 29 March ,we have to be on Munich airport until 09:00 am .

Could you please recommend us another way ( cheap if possible|) to get from Kaprun to Munich on time, because the links above (http://www.bahn.com/i/view/GBR/en/index.shtml & http://www.oebb.at/en/index.jsp ) gives us routes that are not convenient .

thank you again for your help

Either go the evening before using public transport and stay in Munich overnight or book transportation with one of the specialized taxi companies. Google for "taxi Kaprun München Flughafen" and see what companies offer that service.
