Directions to Kufstein - Hinterthiersee

Always take the “Kufstein Nord ” motorway exit
Turn right towards Kufstein at the first roundabout
Go straight through the next roundabout and cross the Inn Bridge (Innbruecke) parallel to the motorway
Turn right on to Thiersee Road (Thierseestraße) after 1 km
After the underpass, continue on the A-road for 6 km until you reach the town of Vorderthiersee
In Vorderthiersee, go left at the crossroads in front of the Raiffeisen Bank and continue up the road towards Hinterthiersee
at the church in Vorderthiersee to Mitterland
After another 5 km, turn right just before you reach the church in Hinterthiersee and continue up the driveway to the hotel.

Panorama road - from Munich in dry weather conditions

In nice weather or bad traffic (eg. If there is a traffic jam on the motorway) we recommend taking the scenic route through the German Lake District: Exit the motorway at “Weyarn” and cross the border via Miesbach, Schliersee and Bayrischzell in to Landl. Shortly after leaving the village, turn right and drive up the serpentine road for 3 km until you reach Hinterthiersee . Those who can’t stomach the serpentine road also have the option of continuing straight ahead after Landl to Vorderthiersee and then to Hinterthiersee (this is recommended in the winter, when there is snow on the roads).

Autobahn vignette (toll road sticker)

A vignette sticker is compulsory when driving on Austria’s motorways (Autobahnen) and expressways (Schnellstraßen). The shortest version is a 1-day-vignette. The vignette is available online, or at almost all filling stations and service stations near the border. When you arrive from the North, the service station Kiefersfelden is the last possibility to buy a vignette.

Important information for all drivers:

The section from the national border to the motorway exit Kufstein Süd is toll-free. So you can travel to Thiersee without a vignette via the Kufstein Nord exit! Beginning at the motorway exit Kufstein Süd you will have to watch out for vignette checks – without vignette will entail a fine of at least 120.- euro. Therefore make sure to take the motorway exit Kufstein Nord in any case.

Traffic information

Our tip: Check the ÖAMTC traffic service or the German traffic info on the current traffic situation. 

Parking at the hotel

A free underground parking space is included in the price of all rooms and suites - except for the categories Ida, Sonnwend, Zirbe or Pendling 3rd floor. When booking these categories, you can park your car free of charge in the hotel's own outdoor car park.


Arrival by train & bus
(Kufstein station)

A CO2-neutral and relaxed journey so you can enjoy your holidays as soon as you leave your home – that is advantage of travelling by train. You can forget about irritating holiday traffic jams, winter tyres, snow chains and all the route planning. Car-free holidays! Choose your train connection and just board! The travel time map will show you how fast you can get to Kufstein. 

Comeback of the night trains: The night train is popular, comfortable and environmentally friendly. Compared to cars and planes, night trains are more sustainable and some night train connections shine particularly brightly, such as the routes to the Kufstein border station: you get on in Hamburg and wake up in Munich - if you travel by night train, you can sleep during the journey and directly save an overnight hotel stay. Therefore, the night train is an attractive travel method for many. Perhaps the night train option is also an option for you?

With the OEBB (Austrian Federal Railway) online timetable you can plan your journey to the Kufstein Region area in advance. You will arrive at the station in Kufstein and from there take the regular bus connections to our resort town. Kufstein is a border station, at which all high-speed and intercity trains stop. Please note a limited timetable on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.

You are lost? Do not hesitate - we will quickly search for your train connection! Simply send us a message.
