By Train -- Bad Gleichenberg lies at the end of a minor rail line stretching eastward from Graz. Passengers board an eastbound train in Graz and head toward the Hungarian border town of Szentgotthárd, changing trains at Feldbach (trip time: 50-60 min.). From Feldbach, about five trains a day continue to the Bad Gleichenberg. Fortunately, because rail connections from Feldbach to Bad Gleichenberg aren't always convenient, passengers can also board one of the eight Bad Gleichenberg-bound buses that depart from Feldbach's railway station every day. The trip from Feldbach to Bad Gleichenberg by bus or train takes an additional 30 to 35 minutes. For rail information, contact tel. 05/1717 (www.oebb.at).
