Getting here by train

Travelling to Osttirol by train couldn’t be more convenient. And to make things even more relaxed, why not reserve a seat and get your luggage delivered by the train company’s door-to-door luggage service. Don’t worry about having to travel light – Osttirol has plenty of options for renting sports equipment.

Lienz has direct long-distance train connections to Vienna. For other destinations it may be advisable to change at Spittal-Millstättersee, Franzensfeste, Villach, Innsbruck or Wörgl and continue from there by regional train or bus.

If you’re travelling from further afield, we recommend using the Nightjet service. It departs in the evening and you travel overnight in a couchette or sleeper carriage. After a quick breakfast you’re ready to start your holiday.

You disembark either at Innsbruck and then take the bus to Lienz or you disembark in Wörgl and go via Kitzbühel to Lienz. The Nightjet service between Hamburg and Innsbruck also carries cars and motorbikes. The entire journey, including the express bus to Lienz, can only be booked through the ÖBB (Austrian Federal Railways).

Osttirol is also easily accessible by day and overnight train services from Italy. The Trenitalia website shows all available options and connections.

Sparschiene Austria tickets offer cheap travel options from anywhere in Austria, while Deutsche Bahn’s cheap ticket finder helps you locate the best prices for tickets from Germany.
