Getting to Fischbachau by public transport

From Munich Airport to Fischbachau station:

  1. In Munich Airport, go the base floor, following the S-Bahn sign (white S on green circle), until you reach the Central Area (Zentralbereich).
  2. There you find blue (MVV) ticket machines where you can get a S-Bahn ticket to Munich. The price for a Einzelfahrkarte (one-way ticket) is DM 15,20.
    (If you intend to stop in Munich, you may buy a Streifenkarte for DM 16,00. You need 8 strips to go to Munich, leaving you 2 for a ride by S-Bahn or U-Bahn and Tram in Munich.)
  3. The S-Bahn leaves downstairs in the Central Area; stamp your ticket before going down. There are two lines, S8 and S1, take S8.
    (If you take S1, you may also continue as in 4., but it takes longer and you have to wait at Donnersbergerbrücke.)
  4. Leave the S-Bahn at station Donnersbergerbrücke, the 2nd stop after Hauptbahnhof, about 45 minutes from the airport.
    (If you took S1, note that Donnersbergerbrücke is the 2nd stop before Hauptbahnhof).
  5. At Donnersbergerbrücke, take the train direction Bayrischzell, normally leaving at platform 2, just opposite to where you arrive. You have 4 minutes to change from S-Bahn to train. Buy a ticket to Fischbachau in the train; the price is DM 16,20.
    (If you took S1, you have to use the staircase to change to platform 2.)
  6. The train changes its direction in Schliersee, about 1 hour later. The second stop after Schliersee is Fischbachau.

From Munich Hauptbahnhof to Fischbachau station:

  1. Take the train going direction Bayrischzell, normally leaving from platform 34.
  2. Buy a ticket at the ticket machine on platform 34, or in the train (Bayrische Oberlandbahn BOB, not Deutsche Bahn DB). The price to Fischbachau is DM 19,40.
  3. To find platforms 27-36, turn right in the main hall with platforms 11-25, then after platform 25, turn left and walk for 3 minutes.

  4. The train changes its direction in Schliersee, about 1 hour later. The second stop after Schliersee is Fischbachau.

From Munich city center to Fischbachau station:

If you are staying in Munich, you can

  1. go by S-Bahn (all lines) to Donnersbergerbrücke and there change to a train direction Bayrischzell, as in 4.-6. above,

Getting to Fischbachau by private car

The hotel is accessible by car via the highway (,,Autobahn'') A8 Munich-Salzburg. Fischbachau is located about 60 km south-east to Munich.

Coming from Munich or Salzburg, it is best to leave Autobahn A8 at exit Irschenberg, follow Bundesstrasse B 472 to Miesbach, leave Miesbach on E 307 and go south through Hundham, Schliersee, Fischhausen, Neuhaus to Aurach. Leave E 307 in Aurach in direction Fischbachau, and 300m after crossing the railroad, turn right. (See the drawing of Aurach).

Note: Coming from Munich, you can also leave A8 earlier at exit Weyarn, go from there to Miesbach and continue as above. Coming from Salzburg, you can leave Autobahn A8 earlier at exit Bad Aibling in direction Bad Feilnbach; then just before you reach Bad Feilnbach, turn right to Hundham, and in Hundham go south through Eibach, Fischbachau, Stauden. In Stauden, turn left for Hotel Aurachhof, before crossing the railroad.

Weather Conditions

Usually, August is the warmest month, with 20-30 C temperature, but there can also be heavy rain showers.

For the excursion day, you should wear good walking boots; alpine mountain boots are not necessary. Better carry a light rain cape; we may go up to 1600 m. For a topographical map of Fischbachau (including Aurach) see
