For tourists the main station in Villach has two primary functions, it is the gateway to the lakes and mountains of Carinthia / Karnten when arriving in the region by train, and it is also an international railway hub.
The railway between Wien and Venezia is the north to south route through Villach and trains between Salzburg and Ljubljana in travel east to west.
So it tends to be a location in which those taking trains between Austria, north east Italy and Slovenia make connections, particularly as the two day time trains on the Austria - Lake Bled - Ljubljana route now both commence their journeys in Villach,
Villach is a gateway to the (currently unavailable) Balkan railway route when travelling by train to Greece and Turkey.

Though some 'connections' in Villach in and out of the trains between Austria and Slovenia can involve spending hours in Villach between trains, but this can be a benefit.
This main railway station in Villach has left luggage lockers and the charming old town area, with its riverside location, is a 10 minute walk straight ahead from the station on the street aptly named BahnhofstraBe.

Whether you will be changing trains in Villach or travelling to and from the town, Villach Hbf is convenient to use.
Bahnsteig (platform/track) 1 is beside the main station building, which is linked to bahnsteigs (platforms/tracks) 2 to 8 by a passage way under the tracks.
