Skiers can reach Ötztal by train from all directions. Seven daily direct connections take guests from Zurich to Ötztal-Bahnhof in only 3 hours without having to change trains. Also the Railjet towards Bludenz via Arlberg pass stops in Ötztal-Bahnhof every two hours. In winter, there is even an additional route from Munich to St. Anton am Arlberg, which stops in Ötztal-Bahnhof. The journey from the north can be made overnight with ÖBB Nightjet (from Hamburg or Düsseldorf via Nuremberg and Munich to Innsbruck). So you won't lose a single day.
