So in case you’re traveling to Kitzbuhel with a large group, it’s better to reserve a taxi in advance. You can also do that via some online services.
Transfer from Munich Airport to Kitzbuhel
In case you’re going to the resort with your friends or your big family (and thus need a large vehicle) and want to arrange your trip in advance, consider a private transfer. The Kiwitaxi company can offer you minibuses of different capacities. Transfer prices already include baggage. To make your order, just choose the desired vehicle and specify the info needed. You can pay for a transfer by your credit card in advance or in cash to your driver after the ride.

Thus, at the airport, take the S-Bahn train (Line S1 or S8) to Munich main railway station (€13). Then, take a direct train from there to Kitzbuhel. As this service is not frequent, you can also use the one with a change at Worgl Station. The fare depends on the train type (high-speed ones are more expensive). On average, you will spend €35.6 and 2 hours to reach Kitzbuhel from Munich. The exact information can be found on the German railways’ site.
At night, it’s better to use transfers and taxis: these services don’t run 24/7.
