Motorail train Hamburg – Villach – Hamburg 2022
Experience Carinthia’s great nature or go on to Croatia, Slovenia and Italy


The Urlaubs-Express to Villach near the Slovenian border is the ideal starting point for your Austrian holiday in Carinthia and Styria or for the continuation of your journey to Italy, Slovenia or Croatia.

Villach, only 30 minutes by car west of the Wörthersee, is one of the most important motorway junctions in the country with east-west and north-south connections. If you travel to Villach with the Urlaubs-Express, you can be in the Slovenian coastal town of Koper in just over two hours after unloading. The Croatian seaside resort of Pula is then only another two hours away. But Carinthia itself also has a lot to offer. For hikers and nature lovers, for example, the Hohe Tauern National Park with its mighty Alpine peaks such as the Großglockner or Großvenediger offers impressive experiences and unforgettable moments. Carinthia is also known for its beautiful lakes like Lake Wörthersee, Ossiacher See, Klopeiner See, Millstättersee, Weissensee or Faaker See.
