Lower Austrian train station sell off goes ahead

Lower Austrian train station sell off goes ahead

An increasing number of train stations are being put up for sale in Lower Austria making attractive locations for businesses.

The latest to change hands is the station at Dürnstein in Krems district.

Instead of selling tickets in future the station will now be the location for the Wachauer Saffron manufacturers. The company is one of six partners that have purchased the property. The local council is building a car park on the site .

Something similar is planned with most of the 220 properties that the Niederösterreichische Verkehrsorganisationsgesellschaft (NÖVOG) obtained two years ago from the state railway company ÖBB.

The reason for the sell-off is that the stations are no longer necessary for the service to operate. All that is needed is an ability to have a place to stop and load and unload passengers.

As a result for example the communities of Rabenstein and Hofstetten-Grünau have purchased their stations are planning to turn them into tourism information centres, shops and cafes.
