Travelling information

By train

Journey by train from Southern Germany is one of the least expensive ways of travelling.

The fastest train connection by Euro-Night (daily) takes the route from Munich via Austria to Rome, from where an Italian train continues on to Messina (Sicily). Stops on the way are Rosenheim, Kufstein, Wörgl, Jenbach and Innsbruck. The journey will take about 21 hours.

Our guests from Austria can take the Euro-Night from Vienna to Rome, via Bruck a.d. Mur, Leoben, Knittelfeld, Friesach, Klagenfurt and Villach.

Our guests from Switzerland are recommended to take the Euro-Night from Zurich to Rome, via Olten, Bern, Thun, Spiez and Brig.
