Getting to Dzokden Kalapa

The nearest airport is in Graz, Austria. To travel to Kalapa by train, start at the main train station in Graz. Take the S6 or S61 S-Bahn towards Wies-Eibiswald for about an hour to the Bad Schwanberg station. (timetable information)

To travel from the Bad Schwanberg train station to the retreat center, a relatively inexpensive taxi service supported by the government is available that will take you directly to the Retreat Center, which is referred to as “Buddhistisches Zentrum” by this taxi service. For more information, please visit the following website: Regio Mobil. The taxi must be ordered at least one hour in advance, but visitors are recommended to do so much earlier or on the day before you intend to arrive. On weekdays, this taxi service operates between 6.00 a.m. and 8.00 p.m. On weekends, it does not operate in the evening. As the journey is quite long (about 20 minutes), the service should be scheduled at least half an hour before the closing hours. For trips on Sundays or public holidays, please schedule the taxi service by 5 p.m. on the day before you intend to arrive.
