Hi, is there a bus service from Vienna to Mariazell? I understand that there is train service that needs to change once to get to marizell. I wonder if there is a bus service so it could possibly cheaper and less hassle ?

Totally agree, YOU SHOULD NOT MISS THAT RAILWAY LINE. You change trains in St. Pölten, same railway station for the main line from Vienna as for the narrow gauge train to Mariazell.

Hi,
yes, there is a bus-service from Vienna to Mariazell. First bus departing at 07:a.m. fromVienna-Meidling Station, ride taking around 3 hours.
Have a look at the schedule at

As already mentioned, I would also recommend to take the train, as the ride is rather romantic and the scenery smashing!

When the bus takes 3 hours you wont win anything, BUT LOOSE the great scenery of Mariazellerbahn between St.Pölten and Mariazell: a narrow gauge train with lovely tunnels and some of the best landscapes around Vienna !

Travel Tips for Mariazell

The Hubertussee, a gift for the people

by Fam.Rauca

The sea lies in Walstern, not far from Mariazell, at the border of Low Austria and Styria.
Dozens brooks lead into the always crystal-clear lake, that was positioned in 1906, as storage lake.
The sea and its influx, the Walster are flying fishery waters of world reputation.
A whole network of footpaths lies around the lake.
The water of the lake glistens like an amethyst from the forest sea between Türnitz, Annaberg, St.Aegyd, and Mariazell.
The dark-green pine on the mellow hill around the Hubertussee mirrors itself in the crystal clear water of the lake.
The big-industrialist Arthur Krupp possesses in these surroundings a precinct of 5200 hectares.
There, he had a wooden hunt palace.
In the year 1906, his wife, Margarete Krupp, let's built a wall of twelve meters height, that dams the whites Walster and gave the Hubertussee to her husband, to the 25th wedding anniversary.

Would you want to work here?

by phil_uk_net

My mission in Mariazellerland was to investigate a job. The product the company plans to manufacture looks quite exciting and could generate a lot of success. Despite all this I could not actually see myself living in such a quiet place. I am used to fairly busy places and got bored here extremely quickly. Ironically the company have received job applications from people purely because they want to work in this location. It just goes to show that we are all different and what suits some doesn't suit others.

Hauptplatz - a somewhat distorted view

I don't normally go in for 'creative' photography. Here is the exception. This shot of Mariazell Hauptplatz is the reflection from one of those street mirrors that assists motorists when vision is obscured.

Fasching

by phil_uk_net

I happened to be in Mariazell for Fasching. This takes place on the Monday and Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. I don't profess to know much about the origins or exactly what goes on but it is practised in Austria and Germany by the Catholic population and appears to be a general letting down of hair before Lent.
On Rose Monday everyone dresses up and acts a bit crazy. I attended a masked party and was a bit concerned. I felt very much like the Edward Woodward character in "The Wicker Man" and suspected that I might have been lured in to the community to be sacrificed in some weird ritual. I survived.

Much alcohol is consumed and there is not much activity on Tuesday due to everyone being hung over.

Lebkuchen (gingerbreads). A tradition of Mariazell

by Fam.Rauca

The gingerbreads are a sweet tradition in Mariazell.
"The entire bee " is a sightseeing program, where you have the possibility to see the tradition, and the old craft of Mariazell.
This town is famous for its gingerbreads and the wonderful creations from this sweet dough.
More info and pictures find you in the web page.
