Southern Railway Museum Mürzzuschlag



The Railway Adventure World in Mürzzuschlag

Two locomotive halls house a varied exhibition of the Vienna-Trieste southern railway and a vehicle collection with the largest collection of rail trolleys and motor rail wagons in Austria. Particular highlights: the imperial and royal café carriage and the 180.01 steam locomotive. ‘All aboard!’ the ECE kids’ adventure route for children aged 5 to 10.

The 150 year anniversary of the Ghega-Semmering railway, which is probably the best known part of the old ‘Südbahn’ southern route from Vienna to Trieste, was the occasion for the creation of the SÜDBAHN Museum historico-cultural railway adventure world, right by Mürzzuschlag station. With the construction of the rail line to Graz in 1844, Mürzzuschlag is one of the oldest railway sites in Austria. Shaped by a rich railway history, Mürzzuschlag is situated on a central stretch of the Südbahn, the Semmeringbahn, which has ranked among the most important cultural treasures in the world as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998. In 2007 the engine shed was converted into an additional exhibition space!
The SÜDBAHN Museum is a place that will pique your interest in the railway and culture!
