"How can I get from Munich airport to Marquartstein, at a reasonable cost?" (posted 07/06/2014)

I am happy to answer the question. Munich Airport by S-Bahn (best S8) to Munich Ostbahnhof. Buy ticket at the station. Then continue by local train or Intercity train to Prien or Uebersee. From there, buses run regularly into the Achental to Marquartstein. Regards, Franz Gscheidmeyer

Then the surrounding Marquartstein mountains and alpine huts, some can also be reached by a funicular railway, the historic Berchtesgaden (about 50km) with its rock giant and of course the city of Salzburg (approx. 50km).

Marquartstein is a nice litle and dormant village in the Southern part of Upper Bavaria approx. 15 km ( 10 miles) off the Motorway between Munich and Salzburg. It has a nice and quaint Market Square amd a great Recreation Park of the children: http://www.maerchenpark.de/. Don´t forget to bring a water proof coat for the children as they will get a "wet" surprise at one of the attractions. Great fun! Marquartstein is surrounded by some beatiful and picturesque villages like Ruhpolding, ReitimWinkl, Aschau, Schleching, Unter- and Oberwössen. A very romantic road into Austria along the river "Tiroler Achen" with many waterfalls in the river. (Bring your camera!) A good place to make Marquartstein as a base for a great holiday for young and old!

I do not mind spending about Marquartstein. The small town crosses a main road to Reit im Winkl and Kössen. The place is located on this street along, there is no center. A beautiful fairy tale park for families who Hochplatten chairlift, hiking and biking trails. In winter, cross-country trails and a toboggan run. Some inns. An old castle, which to my knowledge, but this is not to visit. Many more can be found in Reit im Winkl, or even more in Ruhpolding. Ruhpolding in the heart of the Chiemgau region there is the extra card which offers many recreational facilities daily free of charge. The place is beautiful nestled in the valley and rungherum there are beautiful hiking and biking trails. Here is an excerpt of an extra card - which are released daily: - Vita Alpina Spa Bath - Outdoor swimming pool - Leisure Park - Holzknechtmuseum - Glockenschmiede - Untersbergbahn - Rauschenberg lane 1 x per stay - free parking in town - shuttle in and around Ruhpolding - stadium tour Chiemgau Arena Biathlon Center - Qi Gong and more From here you can reach many interesting places to visit soon.
