How to get here

How do you get to the Gesäuse National Park?

Anyone who visits a national park should take plenty of time... time to look, marvel, observe and time to let nature take its effect on you. The best way to do this is afoot, by bicycle or by public transport.

We are aware that the most comfortable and fastest means of transportation these days is the own car. Still, we are asking our visitors to check the possibilities of public transport and soft mobility first and to leave their own car as often as possible...
