An overview of current service disruptions


  • The Tauern route between Schwarzach St. Veit and Spittal Millstättersee was closed from 18:00 on 04/12 18:00 Uhr to 05:40 on 08/12.
  • The route between Bad Gastein and Bad Hofgastein is closed due to a landslide. It is set to remain closed until slope reinforcement work has been completed by 23:59 on 22/12. Freight trains are being diverted over a large area, which means delays are to be reckoned with.
  • The Drava Valley (Drautal) route between Lienz and San Candido/Innichen has been closed from 18:00 on 04/12 and is expected to re-open at 23:59 on 17/12.


  • According to ÖBB Infrastructure, the extremely heavy snowfall means that route closures are to be reckoned with (Tauern, Brenner incl. Brennersee Terminal, Lienz-Sillian routes). The central and regional Incident Departments at ÖBB Infra have been in session since 02/12 – precautionary measures have been agreed upon, such as organising snow removal, on call rotas etc.
