Getting to Zell am See-Kaprun

Arrival by car

By car, Zell am See-Kaprun is around 1.5 hours away from Salzburg. Munich is only a 2.5 hours' drive away. Main traffic routes and motorways take you from both cities to the Zell am See-Kaprun region. Coming from Salzburg, you can choose: either you take the route via the Tauernautobahn motorway through the Salzachtal Valley or via the so-called "Deutsche Eck" route. The drive via the motorway is a bit longer but more comfortable. The Deutsche Eck route is more impressive. When arriving via the motorway, you must purchase an Austrian Autobahnvignette (motorway badge). The Tauernautobahn motorway will also take you to our region if you arrive from the south. Coming from eastern direction, take the A1 Westautobahn motorway. The German motorway A9 from Munich will take you across the border and in direction Zell am See-Kaprun if you travel from the north. If you arrive from Innsbruck in the west, take the A12 Inntalautobahn motorway first before exiting at Wörgl. From there, you take the main roads through the beautiful mountain landscape of Tyrol before you finally arrive in the wonderful Federal State of Salzburg.
