Types of Trains
All ÖBB trains are state-of-the-art, with comfortable seating and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Certain trains just add that little extra something to your trip!
The Railjet offers more comfortable wagons, free Wifi on board, and much faster connections. At interval speeds of 140 mph (230 km/h), you can now reach Salzburg’s Main Train Station from the Vienna International Airport in as little as 2 hours and 49 minutes. Even service from Vienna airport to St. Anton am Arlberg - all the way in western Austria - is available, as the ÖBB Railjet whisks you to the ski destination of your dreams in less than 6 hours.
With the Nightjet, you can comfortably travel while you sleep in cosy sleeper cars, couchette coaches and day coaches. The next morning, you will arrive fully refreshed at your destination - directly in the city centre. Nightjet routes will take you all throughout Austria, including Salzburg, Vienna, Innsbruck, Bregenz, and Arlberg, among others. Sleeper cars and couchette coaches range from 1 to 6 beds, accommodating groups of different sizes and letting you choose your level of privacy.
The Austrian Railways’ Economy Class is all but basic. Modern, comfortable seats in perfectly air conditioned trains feature power outlets and tables. WiFi is available on many trains and a small on-board bistro is just a short walk away.
For an upgrade, choose First Class, which gets you adjustable seats, more legroom and space on each side, extra wide tables, and power outlets at each seat. You can also order food and drinks straight to your seat!
Ultimate comfort waits in Business Class, which is even more luxurious than First! Maximum distance between seats, leather covers, leg rests, reading lights, and plenty of table space make this not just an ideal place to completely relax.
Air to Rail
Austria’s cities and Alpine regions are now more accessible than ever. Instead of having to rent a car after a long transatlantic flight, or dealing with complicated shuttle services, you can now board your train right at the Vienna International Airport and be on your way. From the Vienna airport Railjets depart twice hourly for Salzburg, the city of Mozart and "The Sound of Music." There are hourly connections to Innsbruck, Tirol’s capital city in the heart of the Austrian Alps. And at least every two hours, you can zip from Vienna’s airport to St. Anton and Bregenz in Austria’s westernmost province.
Advance Seat Reservation
An online booking on the Austrian Railways’ website allows you to reserve your seat for a small fee! Most trains allow for advance seat reservation, which makes traveling with others a breeze and guarantees you a spot by the window. Night trains include an automatic seat or bed reservation with your ticket. This service only costs 3 Euros on domestic trains!
Split Your Journey
Want to hop off the train along the way and explore? No problem, as long as you stay on the same route and complete your journey within 2 days. That means you can buy a ticket from Vienna to Salzburg and discover under-the-radar cities like Linz or Wels along the way! Or make a pit-stop in stunning Innsbruck en route to Austria’s western mountains.
Online Ticketing Through the ÖBB App
Your whole booking experience can now be handled through the ÖBB App, which functions as a seamless digital travel companion. Book your ticket through the app, make a seat reservation, and get your final ticket right on your phone or tablet. The app also delivers real-time travel updates tailored to your itinerary, so you can be prepared for any changes!
