Autoschleuse Böckstein - Mallnitz

The Tauern motorail connects the Mölltal in Carinthia with the Gastein valley in Salzburg through the Tauern tunnel and is an alternative to the Tauern motorway. The Tauern Tunnel is 8370m long, the journey time by car lock is about 12 minutes. The transport of cars with freight trains through the Tauern tunnel has been carried out since 1920. From 1960 to 2001, the inmates were able to stay in the car to speed up the handling time, which has since been prohibited for safety reasons.

Process at the loading point:
Riders (and animals) leave the car, the driver drives it on the loading train and turns it off with the handbrake on and the first gear engaged. The driver and passengers take a seat in the two-story panorama car, and at the other end of the Tauernschleuse, leaving the loading point in reverse order.

Motorcycles are lashed and secured by the train conductor, for this reason we recommend arriving at the loading point about 20 minutes before departure. Motorcycle groups from 6 vehicles must pre-register according to ÖBB.

For bicycles from 1 May to 30 September, an additional wheel car at the car overpass train. Loading period of the bike is 15 minutes to 5 minutes before departure of the train!
