Getting there & away
To explore this region, it’s best if you have your own transport. Trains skirt either side of the woods and the bus service is patchy. The Baden–Alland bus passes through Heiligenkreuz (€1.70, 35 minutes) and Mayerling (€3.40, 45 minutes) on an hourly basis Monday to Friday, but this drops to a trickle on weekends. From Mödling (reached on the Vienna Südbahnhof–Baden train route), there are frequent buses going to Hinterbrühl (€1.70, 11 minutes) which sometimes continue on to Alland via Heiligenkreuz (€3.40, 30 minutes).
The main road through the area is the A21 that loops down from Vienna, passes by Heiligenkreuz, then curves north to join the A1 just east of Altlengbach.
