The ski resorts of the Glemm valley and Leogang are in the middle of a triangle of potential air travel options. Salzburg is the most convenient of the three, with the better connections, but Munich and Innsbruck are both reasonable choices as well.
Salzburg airport boasts the easiest transfer and the shortest distance to the area. The simplest route takes the main road through Germany around Bad Reichenhall and through to Lofer before heading south to Saalfeden (for Leogang) or Maishofen (for Saalbach and Hinterglemm).
Drivers from Innsbruck Airport would take the motorway to Wörgl before heading off to St Johann on the main road through Söll and Ellmau. At St Johann, the direct route to Leogang runs through Fieberbrunn and Hochfilzen. This can also be used by visitors heading for Saalbach and Hinterglemm, who should head through Leogang to Saalfelden and then down to Maishofen and the entrance to the Glemm valley.
In times of heavy snow it may be easier to take the route via St Johann to Lofer and then south to Saalfelden as described in the Salzburg description above. There is also a longer "scenic" option via Kitzbühel, Pass Thurn and Zell am See.
Driving from Munich Airport is a question of following the motorway towards Rosenheim and then south in the direction of Kufstein. One option in good weather is to take the route via Oberaudorf, Reit im Winkl and Waidring, or alternatively use the longer main road via Wörgl, Söll, St Johann and Saalfelden.
There is no railway line heading to Saalbach or Hinterglemm. Visitors wanting to make their way on public transport will find that the easiest method is to make their way to Maishofen or Zell am See and then switch to the public bus services. It is also possible to get buses directly from Salzburg city centre.
Leogang has its own railway station on the line between St Johann and Saalfelden. Regional services run between Salzburg and Wörgl (with frequent rail links to Munich and Innsbruck).
