The fast way to your destination – by train, bus, car, boat or plane.

By train and bus:

Rail passengers choose the railway stations Passau, Linz or Amstetten on the Westbahn line. Use the train as a convenient means of getting to your Danube holiday.

Many hosts pick up their guests on request from the train stations.

By car:

If you come by car from the direction of Munich or Regensburg, use the highway A1 (Salzburg - Linz) or the highway A8 (Passau - Linz).

If you are coming from Vienna, take the A1 motorway (Vienna - Linz).
