Kaprun can be easily reached from three directions, as can be seen from the map above. From the west the route leads over Pass Thurn from the direction of Kitzbühel; from the north via Zell am See; and from the east via the motorway leading south from Salzburg.
Salzburg Airport is certainly the most popular airport, but Munich and Innsbruck are also possibilities.
Salzburg airport is just under 100 kilometers away. What is probably the most popular route takes the A10 motorway south from the city towards the Tauern tunnel. The motorway exit is just before Bischofshofen and heads through St Johann im Pongau and Bruck before reaching Kaprun. An alternate route on more minor roads is to cross Germany via Bad Reichenhall to Lofer and then to head south through Saalfelden and Zell am See.
Innsbruck Airport is not usually the main choice for skiers heading to the resort - however the wide choice of flights available to the airport and, of course, availability may dictate transfers to the resort from the Tyrol. If this is the case, the best route is along the motorway to Wörgl, then via Kitzbühel over Pass Thurn and down along the Salzach valley.
Those driving themselves from Munich airport have a fairly straightforward route south towards Rosenheim and over the border past Kufstein. Probably the simplest way in winter conditions is to take the route via Wörgl, Westendorf and Pass Thurn - some of the alternate routes are via Lofer or Fieberbrunn.
Zell am See railway station is located around seven kilometres from Kaprun. Trains run regularly to Zell am See from Salzburg and Innsbruck, with connections from those routes both north and south into other countries. Buses run frequently from the station into Kaprun centre and taxis are also available for the short journey. There is also a small railway station at Fürth on the Mittersill line about two kilometres from Kaprun.
