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).
Good to know: With your ÖBB train ticket, you get a 10 % discount on the full-day ticket for Nassfeld ski resort. Sounds like a “nice surprise”, right?
