Car & Motorcycle
Driving south, you’ll need to use the Autoschleuse Tauernbahn (railway car-shuttle service) through the tunnel that starts at Böckstein (one way €17). On the A10 Tauern-Autobahn from the north (Salzburg), take the Gasteinertal exit near Bischofshofen, then the B167.
Trains trundle through Bad Gastein’s station every two hours, connecting the town to points north and south, including Spittal-Millstättersee (€11.60, 35 minutes), Salzburg (€15.90, 1½ hours) and Innsbruck (€58.20, 3½ hours).
When travelling north from Bad Gastein to Bad Hofgastein, sit on the right-hand side of the train for the best views.
