I’m Excited

Train from Munich to Feldkirch, then I want to walk cross-country (clear across Liechtenstein!), & then train from Buchs to Zurich

I was thinking of going, at one point, from Munich to Feldkirch, Austria and spending the night at a hostel there. Then bright and early the next morning, hike to Buchs, Switzerland (about 3.5 hours). Take a train from there to Zurich and spend the night in another hostel. Doable?

    Hi Rich,

    I don't know much about the hike, but as far as the rail goes, that's definitely doable.

    A rail connection from Munich to Feldkirch only takes about 4 hours in duration and involves changing trains once along the way in either Lindau or Kufstein. There are more options through Lindau, but the route through Kufstein is an incredibly scenic journey (note: the options through Lindau are also scenic, just not quite to the same degree).

    And then from Buchs to Zurich you would take a direct Railjet train.

    You would purchase tickets by searching a route under 'Find Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com.

    For a trip from Munich to Feldkirch, you would just piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, for the option via Lindau, you would do one search for trains from Munich to Lindau and another search for connecting trains from Lindau to Feldkirch. For the option via Kufstein, you would do one search for trains from Munich to Kufstein and then another search for connecting trains from Kufstein to Feldkirch.

    Trains from Munich to Lindau are ALX (Alex) trains running along the 'Allgäu Railway'. Trains from Lindau to Feldkirch are regional trains.

    Trains from Munich to Kufstein are EC (EuroCity) and Meridian trains operating along the 'Rosenheim-Kufstein Railway'. Trains from Kufstein to Feldkirch are Railjet trains, which will have you traveling along a very renowned scenic stretch of railway known as the 'Arlberg Railway'. This stretch of railway starts as you pass through Innsbruck and ends as you pass through Bludenz (Feldkirch is the next stop after Bludenz).

    Generally, these trains all can be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date.
