Opt for a sustainable journey to the Lesehotel by choosing the train

From Vienna or Salzburg main station, board a train heading towards Innsbruck, Salzburg, or Munich and alight at the Attnang-Puchheim stop. From there, catch the S-Bahn (suburban train)  towards Salzkammergut, which departs approximately every hour, and disembark at the Bad Goisern Bahnhof stop.
