By bus

From 1 Mayrhofen station, take bus  4104  direction Hintertux and get off at Lanersbach or Vorderlanersbach. Travel time from Mayrhofen is ca. 20 minutes.

By car

Traveling to Tux by car is not recommended because of the limited parking amenities in town. Rather leave your car in Mayrhofen and take the bus from there. Snow chains are mandatory when entering the Tuxer Valley in winter, so you'll need them to reach Tux. Expect to be fined heavily if you ignore the signs, get stuck in snow or ice on the L6, and block traffic in the entire valley.

Get around

In the winter season, from 19.12.2020 – 18.04.2021, there is a ski bus (the Green Line) between Mayrhofen and Hintertux which stops in Lanersbach and Vorderlanersbach, and is the easiest way to get around.
