Mountain and other special railroads

Travel the country by train: Romantic rail trips from the forests of the Waldviertel to the mountains of the Vienna Alps, from the vineyards of the Weinviertel through the Wachau Donau valley to the Ybbs valley in the Mostviertel.

The magic of old railways still remains today: restored trains, old stretches of track, not to mention the relaxed speed, give travelling by train its own unique quality and dynamism. In Lower Austria, narrow gauge fans can discover some very special routes and lines throughout all regions.
