These trains are operated by OBB, Austrian national railways, so its website always gurantees the cheapest price available for this journey.
On OBB the discounted tickets are the 'Sparscheine' tickets and they can be booked online up until the day of departure - but they CAN'T be booked at stations, so booking last minute at the station is always more expensive.
Though you'll usually need to book the 'Sparscheine' tickets at least a couple of days ahead to obtain them at the cheapest possible price.
Trains departing at different times can also be cheaper than others leaving on the same day, so you may need to look through the day's departures to find the cheapest fares
Seat reservations are optional on this journey, but they're recommended if you want to be sure of a seat when travelling 2nd class on these Railjet trains, particularly in the summer months.
Take note if you will be using a 2nd class rail pass.
Although if you book 1st class ticket journey tickets on DB, the German railways website, your seat reservation will be included.
|Ticket Provider||Approximate Cost|
|Happy rail||from €19|
|Save A Train||from €19|
Note that these trains don't call at Munchen Ost station, so you will need to head to Munchen Hbf, the city's main station, in order to board these trains.
This journey as this is a pleasant, rather than spectacular train ride - the views of the mountains will be distant ones.
The prettiest part of the journey by train from Munchen to Linz is the final part of the trip after Salzburg.
