Murtalbahn Steam Train Experience

Snorting, steaming and hissing - a short, shrill whistle clears the air - and the steam train leaves Murau station taking its historical carriages with it. The tour takes you through the Upper Murtal, along the green waters of the River Mur, through picturesque mountain scenery, past forests and meadows. It is an experience that sets every railway enthusiast’s heart-both young and oldracing. In Stadl an der Mur you can watch and photograph the water tender being filled. Culinary delicacies and live Styrian harmonica music await you on board. On Tuesdays and Thursdays there is a stopover in Tamsweg, which allows passengers to see the town‘s sights. Before or after the trip, guided tours of the town of Murau or the Murauer Brewery Museum can be organised. A large number of hiking trails and the famous River Mur Cycle Trail are great for combining with a steam train ride. We will be happy to create individual programmes for trips on special occasions such as birthdays, weddings or anniversaries.


Tues: 16 June - 8 Sept., 18. June - 24 Sept

Sun: 26 July - 30 August
