The closest international airport to Sölden is Innsbruck (Austria).

Munich is an option if coming from overseas and you want to save an additional connecting flight within Europe to Innsbruck, but the transfer time from/to Munich is 3-4 hours and the costs are higher than from Innsbruck.

Airport transfer Innsbruck: The most convenient way is to take a taxi; this takes one hour and costs €190 per trip for 1-6 people. The hotel can arrange this for you when you make your reservation.

Public transportation: By train from Innsbruck Main Railway Station to Ötztal Bahnhof, then by bus to Sölden (frequently during daytime). By bus from Innsbruck Main Railway Station directly to Sölden (several times daily). Travel time is approx. two hours.

Airport shuttles: Shuttle transfer time from Munich approx. 3-4 hours; from Innsbruck approx. one hour.

By train

For the train schedule to station Ötztal Bahnhof from Innsbruck or Munich on the Internet see Austrian Railways or German Railways.
From station Ötztal Bahnhof you can travel by public bus (45 minutes) or taxi (25 minutes) to Sölden.

By car

Sölden can be reached from the Austrian motorway A 12 (west, direction Bregenz, if coming from Germany or Italy or Eastern parts of Austria and Europe), take exit no. 123 (Ötztal) and drive south to Sölden.

If coming from Switzerland, pick up A12 at Landeck and drive east, direction Innsbruck, and exit at exit no 123 (Ötztal), and drive south to Sölden.

The road from the motorway to Sölden is well maintained and an easy drive. Be prepared, however, for winter conditions, as snowfall might occur, and special winter tires are obligatory in such conditions.

Please note that the shortest road from Northern Italy (Bolzano - Merano - Passo Del Rombo (Timmelsjoch) - Sölden) is closed during winter until late May, and therefore you have to drive via Brennero - Innsbruck if coming from Italy.
