Travelling through Austria by rail is easier than ever. Sit back on a modern ÖBB train and marvel at the mountain peaks and forest landscapes.
What better way to travel than through stunning Alpine scenery, lush valleys, historic towns and picturesque villages than on ÖBB’s comfortable trains? All parts of Austria can be accessed with the state-of-the-art ÖBB trains. From Vienna International Airport, ÖBB Railjets have twice-hourly service to Salzburg and once every hour to Innsbruck during the day. Rail is the perfect way to travel for outdoor enthusiasts. For example, take a regional train in Salzburg to Zell am See where you can hop on the scenic Eurocity Transalpin to Kitzbühel or Innsbruck, enjoying the view from the first-class panoramic car.
ÖBB trains offer air conditioning, generous luggage racks, sockets for charging electronic devices and Wi-Fi services, as well as on-board restaurants (depending on the train category). If travelling in First or Business Class, snacks, drinks and food will be served directly at your seat (fee payable). There are lounges at various railway stations exclusively for First Class passengers too where you can pass time relaxing and drinking coffee. The ÖBB Railjet service offers a Business Class in addition to a First and Economy Class, and a cinema for children.
On ÖBB trains, children under 6 travel for free. Children between 6 and 14 travel half-price ticket. There are further offers for families travelling on ÖBB trains.
