The TschuTschu Bahn

Every Tuesday and Thursday in the summer months, the Mariapfarrer road-going steam train offers a break from it all with either an extended ride or shorter round-trip into the mountains. A Gasthaus en-route offers refreshments with a play area to entertain the smaller travellers.
