How to get to Ellmau
The Wilder Kaiser Region is situated in Tyrol between Kufstein and Kitzbühel in the Söllandl valley. The four Kaiser villages of Ellmau, Going, Scheffau and Söll are easy to get to whichever mode of transport you choose.
Ellmau is fortunate to have the major international airports of Munich, Salzburg and Innsbruck all within an hours drive of the resort. The road connections from the airport are excellent with motorways nearly all the way.
If you are driving on the Austrian motorways, it is compulsory to buy the Vignettes which is equivalent to road tax sticker. These can be bought at motorway service stations and a 10-day-vignette (the shortest version) will cost €8.90 for cars in 2017.
Coming from the West, you need to take the A12 motorway and exit at Wörgl Ost. Follow the signs to St. Johann-in-Tirol first before picking up directions to Ellmau which is just 20kms from the motorway exit.
The closest train station to Ellmau is Kitzbuhel just 17kms away. Trains to Kufstein and St. Johann-in-Tirol are also options but are a little further away. On arrival at the train station, you can catch one of frequent buses or take a taxi.
