Innsbruck airport is the logical choice for visitors to Serfaus, Fiss or Ladis. The choice of the many charter flights or some scheduled services and the proximity of the airport make it a hands-down winner
Salzburg airport and Munich airport are both included as Salzburg is a favourite for holiday charter flights and Munich is a popular scheduled destination for long-haul scheduled arrivals.
The proximity of Innsbruck Airport and its choice of ski charter flights make the destination a winter for Serfaus. The introduction of new lower-fare scheduled flights from major destinations like London has made it into a real option for those flying from further afield.
The route from Innsbruck follows the main Inn valley motorway up to the junction at Landeck and then heads south into the upper Inn valley. At Ried im Oberinntal the route leaves the main road to the Italian border and starts to climb into the mountains. Adequate winter equipment and experience of driving on narrow roads in bad conditions are obligatory for any car trip to the resorts.
The most direct way to head from Munich Airport to Serfaus is through the city and south to Garmisch, Ehrwald and the Fernpass. From there the route joins the main Inn valley motorway and the description above at Imst. In bad conditions or heavy traffic, drivers may prefer to stick to the motorway via Kufstein, however.
The normal route from Salzburg Airport heads through Germany on the motorway to Kufstein and then into Austria via the Inn valley motorway. Those looking for a scenic route may prefer the country roads via Lofer, St Johann and Söll, although this should be avoided in heavy traffic or bad snow conditions.
Landeck railway station is located at the entrance to the Upper Inn valley and on the main line between Innsbruck and Zurich. Regular trains run on this line but the short journey from Landeck to Serfaus is by relatively infrequent bus (service finished in the early evening) or by a taxi ordered from the resort or hailed at the railway station.
