We used this way of getting round the valley on our recent visit to Niederau. It is an efficient way of getting around with hourly pick-ups. It is not the most comfortable ride ever and can be rather smelly from the Land Rover exhaust so my tip is to sit as far back as possible but then you are near the open back door. The tickets are 2.50 euros per single trip or 4euros return, but you can buy Day or Week tickets. The walk from Niederau to Oberau was very pleasant so we only bought separate tickets when we needed them.

It was only on our 6th trip to the Wildschonau that we took the slow train to the Kundl Gorge. Don't forget to use your visitor card for a discount and a wonderful walk awaits you.

We liked the sound of the crystal clear slightly tinged green water, and the scenery was beautiful. We had to walk to the tennis club at the end of the walk in order to get a drink - the beer was lovely well worth the wait.

The Bummelzug runs regularly through all the villages giving access to the alm at the end of the valley and Thierbach a village perched high above the valley floor. Make sure you read the timetable properly!

This little train did a fantastic job at taking all our wedding guests to the venue and brought them back to the main hotel.Easy to book and a pleasure dealing with them. Thank you! :D
