Arrival & mobility in the Nassfeld-Pressegger See habitat
As "Austria's most sustainable region" model region- awarded by the Federal Ministry for Climate Action and the Austrian Climate Fund - we promote car-free holidays. Sustainable forms of travel, such as train or bus, enable you to arrive in our region in comfort and with low emissions. For the "last mile", there is also a sophisticated train station shuttle service that takes you directly to your booked accommodation or excursion destination.
Arriving by train
Just imagine: no annoying traffic jams. Instead, you can lean back and relax from the very start of your journey and at the same time do something for the environment. These are just some of the advantages of travelling by train.
Villach main station is the most important hub for train travels from all directions. From there, ÖBB suburban train line S4 to Hermagor leaves every hour. From Hermagor, take the regional bus to the surrounding villages and to the ski and hiking resort of Nassfeld. During winter, there is also a ski bus that takes you from the station right to Nassfeld ski resort (last stop Tröpolach Millennium-Express).
Useful information for travelling by train
All guests arriving by train and bus at the Hermagor, Greifenburg or Oberdrauburg train stations will be taken to their accommodation, and to selected excursion destinations in the region, by the Carinthian Bahnhofshuttle Kärnten train station shuttle at a favourable rate.
Please note, online pre-registration via www.bahnhofshuttlekaernten.at is required by 8pm the day before. For pre-registration by phone, please call +43 (0)4242 / 42000-24. Lines are open daily between 5am and 12am.
