Railway connection - Lokalbahn S1+S11

The “Lokalbahnhof” station is located on the lower level of Salzburg Main Station. Trains on the Salzburger Lokalbahn line run from Salzburg Main Station to the northern Flachgau region. The S1 runs between the Lokalbahnhof, Bürmoos and Lamprechtshausen. The S11 will bring you to Ostermiething.


One of the towns along the line is Oberndorf, famous as the place where “Silent Night” was first performed. And in Bergheim, a beautiful footpath leads you to the famous pilgrimage church of Maria Plain.
