How to get here

How do you get to the Gesäuse National Park?

Anyone visiting the Gesäuse National Park should take plenty of time... time to look, marvel and observe and time to let nature work its magic on you. The best way to do this is by travelling on foot, by bike or by public transport. With ÖBB you can get to the National Park in a sustainable, relaxed and safe way!


We are of course aware that the most convenient and fastest means of transport of our time is still your own car. However, we ask you to first check the possibilities of public transport and soft mobility and to leave your own car behind as often as possible...

Travel by train!

The Crown Prince Rudolf railway has been running through the Gesäuse for around 150 years. This makes the Gesäuse National Park the only national park in Austria through which a direct railway line runs!

We are very pleased that we have entered into a co-operation with the Austrian Federal Railways to promote each other's services and to continuously improve connections.


Unser Tipp und gleichzeitig unsere Bitte: Reisen Sie mit der ÖBB an!


Book your Einfach-Raus ticket from EUR 36 for 2 people and get off directly in the national park and set off on your hike.

One-way ticket
Gstatterboden railway station



From Vienna, there are two daily services to the Gesäuse at weekends and on public holidays, with an express train on Fridays and a return connection on Sundays. At weekends, there is a more frequent regional service in the region with two direct connections from Attnang-Puchheim.

From Graz you can easily get to Liezen and from there you can take the bus to Admont every hour or so.

For trains that do not run directly through the National Park, the nearest railway stations are Ardning, Kleinreifling, Weißenbach/Enns, Selzthal or Liezen. Public buses also run at regular intervals between the railway stations, taking you safely and quickly to the Gesäuse.
