"Eisenerz: Hauly - the biggest tourbus in Austria" Top 5 Page for this destination Austria Transportation Tip by globetrott

Austria Transportation: 114 reviews and 133 photos

This is a great fun for all of the family, but unfortunately it is also a bit off the beaten path : Eisenerz, a small village close to Mariazell and you will find there a mountain totally made of iron and for the guided tours through the erzberg they use this very special tourbus:
Hauly - the biggest tourbus in Austria
When you click on my picture you will see the giant dimensions of that HAULPACK 85C built by WABCO / USA
This truck has 55 tons and may carry another 77 tons,the engine has 860 hp / PS. The ride on that truck is part of the tour through the mines inside the mountain, where you will go with a small train and then 45 minutes by Hauly on the terraces, including a stop in order to take pics on the very top of the Erzberg.
The total tour costs 22 Euros and was really interesting - see my Eisenerz-page !!
