We will be in Salzburg for a weekend in May. Is this feasible to leave hotel in Salzburg on Sunday AM and train to Munich to catch a 1220 pm flight to home?
Same answer as on "Germany" forum.
Yes. Leave Salzburg at 7:12 am, change to the S8 at Munich Ost, arrive Munich airport at 9:35. Cost is 23 euro using the Bayern ticket. Take the 8:12 to get there at 10:35 if you want to cut it close.
We are almost 100% sure we will do above plan. . . . are the trains for the most part, always punctual. Being that early too on a Sunday AM. . . . . .
Yes, very punctual, but if you take the 7:12 Meridian to Munich Ost, the S-8 runs to the airport every 20 minutes. There is only 6 minutes to change trains at Ost. So if something should cause a delay in the Meridian, and you miss the fast connection, you will still get to the airport at 9:55 at the latest, which is plenty of time
