Arrival by train

The trains of the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) are a guaranteed way to get to your well-deserved holiday while avoiding traffic jams and the stress of driving. Thanks to our location on the Southern Railway line, you can comfortably travel to all our excursion destinations by train whilst doing something good for the environment as well. The ÖBB Railjet, the most modern Austrian high-speed train, arrives at Mürzzuschlag Station every hour from Graz and Vienna. In addition, there are S-Bahn lines within the region which provide regular train connections. Each municipality has a railway station, which makes it easy to get on and off the train wherever you need to. Tickets and timetable information are available online at!

Tip: Do you want to travel with your bike? No problem – a ticket for your bike costs around two euros for the regional and S-bahn trains. Take a look at the ‘Einfach-Raus-Radticket (‘Just-Get-Started Cycle Ticket’)’.
