Getting there & around
The major rail routes bypass the heart of Salzkammergut, but regional trains cross the area north to south. You get on this route from Attnang-Puchheim on the Salzburg–Linz line. The track from here connects to Bad Ischl, Hallstatt and Obertraun in one direction, as well as to Gmunden in another. When you’re travelling from a small, unstaffed station (unbesetzter Bahnhof), you buy your ticket on the train; no surcharge applies.
Regular buses connect the region’s towns and villages, though less frequently on weekends. Timetables are displayed at stops, and tickets can be bought from the driver.
To reach Salzkammergut from Salzburg by car or motorcycle, take the A1 or Hwy 158.
