Tangomarathon: Austrian Alpine Abrazo

To get there by car

Location address:

9822 Mallnitz 155, Tauernbad

By car

When using GPS 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 alternative is following the A2 via Graz, Klagenfurt, Villach, Spital. From Vienna it’s a 4 hours drive.

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. Please check operating hours! Please do not forget to buy the highway vignette! (fines are horrendous!)

For the last mile by car you just follow the signs "ALPINE ABRAZO" we put all over the village, leading you to the "TAUERNSAAL".

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.
