Did you check that the planned train is running?
With the current refugee drama the train service between Germany and
Austria seems to be still (partially?) suspended.

Also border controls were re-instituted between the Austrian and German
border so expect huge delays on the border when driving / going by bus.

It might make even sense to take a detour over Czech Republic when
taking the train/car between the two countries. Luckily I had to take a
flight myself due to time constraints; that is unaffected by this.
