Whether you arrive from Austria or Germany, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Slovenia or Hungary: Thanks to the extensive railway network, Styria is easy to reach by train from all directions. 

The Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) even offer discounts of up to 60 per cent for students travelling with the “ÖBB-Schulcard (school card)”. Accompanying adults go free. What’s more, online tickets and seats can be booked online free of charge with the card.

For more detailed information on the school card, as well as on transport support services for disabled people and optional grants, visit the ÖBB website.
