Salzburg airport is by far and away the most convenient location for those arriving by air, both from the point of view of choice of flights and road and rail connections from the airport. The smaller regional Austrian airports might offer alternatives for those who are served by their more restricted choice of flights.
Salzburg Airport offers a good variety of charter flights in the winter (mostly on the weekend) as well as the usual scheduled flights. Those renting a car from the airport will find that the route is straight down the motorway to the south with only a short non-motorway stretch at beginning and end. Salzburg is also well-served by rail connections (reached by airport bus) in the direction of Radstadt, the nearest railway station.
Klagenfurt is the second closest airport to Zauchensee and has limited flights from low-cost carriers as well as a slightly more extensive programme from some Germany cities. Road access from the airport is mostly via the Tauern motorway.
Linz has a few low-cost flights from destinations within Europe as well as mainly business services from some German cities. Road or rail access to Zauchensee is easiest through Salzburg.
Graz has a decent programme of scheduled flights, mainly from cities in nearby countries. The easiest road route is via the A9 through to Schladming and on to Radstadt.
Although it is quite a distance away, Munich may still be an option because of the transport connections through to Salzburg and the wide range of flights available.
