Arrival and mobility

By train through the Chiemgau-Area

The train ensures environmentally friendly arrival in the Chiemgau-Area and guarantees good mobility within the region. The local trains of the Southeast Bavarian Railway and the Bavarian Regiobahn reliably cover the main traffic arteries of the Chiemgau-Area.

IC and ICE stops are in Prien and Traunstein. Stops for DB and BRB trains are Übersee, Bergen and Traunstein. Other lines of the Südwestbayernbahn go to Waging am See and Ruhpolding. The LEO local train between Bad Endorf and Obing is a highlight for nostalgics.

For optimal planning and mobility with public transport, we recommend using the Wohin-Du-Willst-App.

Arriving by car: Via the A8 Munich-Salzburg motorway, exits Bernau, Übersee, Grabenstätt, Bergen, Siegsdorf Ost, Siegsdorf West Arriving by plane: Salzburg Airport is 40 kilometers from Traunstein, Munich Airport around 100 kilometers. Approximately two hours should be planned for the route from Munich Airport (S8 to Munich-Ost, change there to the BRB or DB). In Salzburg we recommend a rental car.
