How to get there?
Take the Westbahn, one of Austria’s main railway lines which connects e.g. Salzburg, Linz and Vienna to Amstetten and change trains for Waidhofen an der Ybbs or Kleinreifling. Get off in Hauptbahnhof Waidhofen an der Ybbs (Hauptbahnhof = main train station) and take the City-Bahn (= Ybbstalbahn) in direction Gstadt bei Waidhofen. Get off at the second station (Lokalbahnhof). Cross the street and you are there. The train ride from Amstetten to Hauptbahnhof Waidhofen an der Ybbs will take about half an hour, from there to Lokalbahnhof five minutes.
