Arrival and departure

Can I arrive by train?

Important: If you are arriving or departing by train, you must ensure that you are also allowed to take your bicycle with you. You must buy a special ticket for your bike. On Intercity trains, a reservation for your bike is required. Groups, however, should always register at least 7 days in advance. You can find more information at: www.oebb.at or www.bahn.de

In Mariastein, there is a public car park directly next to the Wallfahrtskirche Mariastein. In Angerberg, you can park your car directly at the accommodation for the duration of the journey. In Hopfgarten, you can leave your car on the free "Wasserfeld" car park or alternatively in the SkiWelt underground garage for Euro 8 per day per car.
