to Tyrol's nature park and glacier region

Whether by car, rail, bus, or air, here you will find all the travel information you need to get to the Kaunertal.

There are a few important things to keep in mind:

  1. The motorways in Austria have tolls. If you drive without paying for a vignette, you will face high penalties. The vignettes are available at kiosks and petrol stations. They are valid for 10 days, 2 months, or for a full year.
  2. Vignettes are also compulsory for the Landecker Tunnel (you could drive the Piller Höhe/Gachenblick Pass instead).
  3. In winter, adequate equipment and snow chains depending on the weather are also required. Attention: winter tyres are compulsory in Austria from 1 November to 15 April!
  4. Austria also requires you to carry safety vests for every passenger who would have to leave the vehicle in case of a breakdown or accident.
