Tangomarathon: Austrian Alpine Abrazo 2012

To get there by carBy car

That's very easy. Use your GPS Navigationsystem, enter Mallnitz / Austria (ZIP code is 9822) and drive there. But it might be good to know that GPS will route one from Vienna to Mallnitz via A6 and some smaller roads to Tauerntunnel (5,- EUR road tax). An alternativ is following the A2 via Graz, Klagenfurt, Villach, Spital.

There is a car shuttle train service ("Autoverladung") operating between Mallnitz (South of the Alps) and Böckstein (North of the Alps) through the over 8 km long Tauern Railway Tunnel. If you are coming from the North you might want to use it. Because of this car shuttle train service there are signs leading towards Mallnitz from far away. Please do not forget to buy the highway vignette! (fines are horrendous!)

By train

Due to the car shuttle train service Mallnitz-Böckstein being one of the main North-South connections through the Alps every international train will stopp at train station Mallnitz (Mallnitz-Obervellach), despite the fact that Mallnitz basically is a small mountain village. So you should be able to find good train connections from basically all over Europe going more or less directly to/via Mallnitz.

There are special offers (up to 50% off) from Germany to High Tauern National Park with the German Bahn RIT-ticket.

There are direct ICE train connections from Münster - Düsseldorf - Köln - Mainz - München and Frankfurt - Stuttgart - Ulm - München to Mallnitz
