Unlimited winter adventures
with the winter hiking taxi back to the starting point
Are you longing for snow-covered mountain slopes? Is it only the arrival that makes you hesitate? Then travel environmentally friendly and comfortably by train or bus to the wintry holiday region of Pyhrn-Priel. The winter hiking taxi takes you from the train station to the starting point of the most beautiful winter tours and then back to the train station. Our overnight guests can of course start at your accommodation.
Carefree on the road in winter
The winter hiking taxi takes you individually to the starting point of your winter adventure and back again. The winter hiking taxi simplifies your tour planning, especially when crossing or hiking distances, since you don’t have to return to the starting point.
For example, you could extend the Teichlboden-Halssattel snowshoe tour and descend to Roßleithen via the Dümlerhütte instead of returning to the Wurzeralm.
We have put together some of the most popular winter tours for you below.
Spital am Pyhrn train station – Pyhrnpass area
Spital am Pyhrn train station – Bosruckhütte
Windischgarsten train station – Hengstpass area
Roßleithen train station – Roßleithen town center
Roßleithen-Vorderstoder train station
Roßleithen-Rettenbachtal railway station
Hinterstoder Train Station – Hinterstoder Ort – Hutterer Boden*
*The winter hiking taxi from Hinterstoder to the Hutterer Boden or back may only be used when the cable car is not in operation. The toll fees are charged extra.
How it works
Simply register with the nearest taxi partner (see bottom of page) the day before by 5 p.m. and order the winter hiking taxi for the desired route. For the return journey, it is usually sufficient if you report back to the taxi company 1 hour before you are scheduled to be picked up.
How much does the winter hiking taxi cost?
The fare consists of a basic amount for the departure zone of €6 plus the number of zones traveled to your destination of €2 each. Children up to the age of 14 travel for free when accompanied by an adult.
Who can use the winter hiking taxi?
The inexpensive winter hiking taxi is available to every guest who can show a valid ticket for the ÖBB, the Upper Austrian Transport Association (OÖVV) or a leisure ticket for the journey to the Pyhrn-Priel holiday region and wears visible winter sports equipment.
The winter hiking taxi can only be used for the trip to the tour and back to the train station or accommodation if the use of public transport - including the ski bus - is not reasonable. Information on the nearest bus stop and the associated departure times can be found at ooevv.at
If possible, please use the cable car for your ascent to the Hutterer floors. Extra rates apply for the toboggan taxi.
The discounted fare CANNOT be used for shopping trips or trips to events. In these cases, the usual taxi rates will be charged by the taxi company.
