    I have a group of 18 adults. We will be arriving at Passau port on a river cruise early morning in November. We will like to either take a private tour or a private transfer to visit Salzburg for about 9 hours including to/from transportation times. Please advise the best way to go Salzburg. If possible, please suggest a reliable local tour supplier or a reliable private transfer company to contact.

    Train from Munich to Passau for First-timers

    by veerzaara Online Now Jun 17, 2012 at 2:02 PM

    I have never ever been on a train before, and my first train ride will be from the Munich main train station to Passau. I already have a voucher to get from the airport to the main train station, but I have absolutely no idea what to do once I am at the train station. How do I purchase a ticket? How do I get it validated? (I am told that I must do this before getting on the train.) Do I locate the train by its number or by the direction it is heading or both? Where do I put my luggage once on the train? ( I have one suitcase, which isn't heavy.) Are seats on the train numbered, or do I sit wherever? I assume that it will be announced when the train arrives in Freising. And then once at Freising, will it be easy to locate and get to the train to Passau? It seems from the printout from DB Bahn, that I will have only 9 minutes to change. Is this enough time? Sorry for all of the probably obvious questions, but as I have been searching online, all replies and answers seem to be directed to those who are very familiar with riding trains and being in a train station and not to those who, like me, don't have a clue! Thank you!

  • Passau train service

    by tonyc3942 Online Now Oct 12, 2011 at 1:42 PM

    We will depart Passau from a river cruise and are looking to take the train there to Linz. I would like to know how far it is from the ship docking point (Fritz-Schaffer Promenade)to the train station. Are taxi's readily available at the docking point to take to the train quickly. Our boat docks around 8:30am and it looks like the train gets into Passau at about 10am. Does it make sense to buy train tickets in USA before we leave next week or buy them at the train station? Once in Linz we will reboard the ship in the evening. Thank you.
