The Tauernbahn route also takes you beyond the borders of Austria to destinations in Germany. Eurocity services thus provide direct connections to Bavaria (Munich), North Rhine-Westphalia (Dortmund) and Saarland (Saarbrücken). And vice versa: Eurocity trains run from Germany via Salzburg and Villach to the most southerly state in Austria, and on further to Ljubljana and Zagreb.
In the south of Austria, a veritable sea of clean, warm swimming lakes awaits you in the centre of the Southern Alps. Mountains ranging from mighty three-thousand-metre giants to gentle peaks, and from whose summits you can enjoy magnificent views of the region’s unique diversity.
