Imagine this: you board a train at home and wake up the next morning in the middle of the mountains, the alpine world at your feet and your next hike just around the corner. You can catch the Nightjar train from across Germany and the Netherlands to all of the hikes in this Collection – what could be better?

You can reach many hiking regions with the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) Nightjet trains: St. Anton am Arlberg, the Zillertal Valley, the Hohe Salve mountain the Kitzbühel Alps, Stubaital Valley, the Seefeld region, Tirols high plateau, Achensee lake, Kitzbühel, Kufsteinerland, and the Alpbachtal and Wipptal valleys.

The night train stops in Hamburg, Düsseldorf and close to Amsterdam, among other places. This means you can reach your next favourite holiday destination in a climate-friendly way without any traffic jams and in the comfort of a sleeping carriage. A little bonus: you unlock the komoot world package for free when you book the Nightjet.

To help you make the most of your trip to Austria, we’ve selected the best hiking Tours for you in this Collection. Catch the night train to Austria, hop on a shuttle to your accommodation and you’re ready to go. The start and end points of the hikes are easy to reach either on foot, by bus or by mountain railroad from your accommodation. This means that you don't have to rely on a car when you arrive. In addition, Austria’s tourist regions are linked to the public transport network, so you can always easily find onward travel.

High peaks, delicious food in cosy huts and hundreds of kilometres of impressive hiking trails await you in this Collection. We included a route for every type of hiker: whether you enjoy short day Tours with hut stops or a challenging panoramic Tour. An overnight train ride into Austria’s alpine world takes you out of your everyday life and catapults you into the middle of a unique landscape, where exciting experiences go hand in hand with the tranquil nature.
