How to get there
Schloss Wetzlas is in the beautiful Waldviertel countryside about 1h30 North West of Vienna. There is no direct access to the castle by public transport but we dream of setting up a self-organised shuttle service that will pick people up at the nearest train station.
- By car: as mentioned, a comfortable 1h15 drive from Vienna (1h30 from the airport) through the Austrian countryside. There will be plenty of free parking on-site.
- By public transport: see below.
- By rideshare: see Ridesharing
Wetzlas 1, 3594 Wetzlas, Niederösterreich, Austria
On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday there is a bus connection from Wien Praterstern (Regionalbus 175), depature 16:20 with a change in Horn Hauptplatz that arrives in Franzen at 17:59. Ticket price is around 20€. From there it's a 2.6km walk. If you ask in advance (in slack) we might pick you up there.
On Sunday we plan a bus shuttle to the trainstation in Sigmundsherberg. Depature from the castle is 12:00, and you will arrive in Wien Franz-Josefs-Bahnhof at 14:30. When you team up, ask for the “Einfach-Raus-Ticket” which is 46€ for 5 persons!

You need to improvise the last mile from Horn or Krumau to Wetzlas:
- Some of us dream to organize a shuttle bus
- You can negotiate a price with a local taxi company. Please start searching for Taxi companies around Horn/Zwettl/Krumau, call them for availabilities and rates, and share your knowledge here. We need websites, phone numbers, and rates!
