    ÖBB railjet

    Travel from Vienna airport to Prague with the ÖBB railjet

    The ÖBB railjet now connects all of Austria, as well as its neighbouring countries with interval trains running at top speeds of 230 km/h. On the state-of-the-art high-speed trains which make up ÖBB’s fleet, you will travel faster than ever before, be it from Vienna via Salzburg, Innsbruck and Bregenz to Zurich or via Graz and Klagenfurt to Villach. Other ÖBB railjets zip along the route Budapest – Vienna – Munich in record time, on some days also taking you onwards to Stuttgart, Mannheim or Frankfurt/Main.

    Since December 2014, the railjet has also been running from Graz via Vienna and Brno to Prague at two-hour intervals. Another new development since December 2014: the ÖBB railjets to Graz, Villach, Prague and Budapest now also stop at the new Vienna Central Train Station.

    From December 2015 onwards, all railjets running towards Munich and Zurich will stop at Vienna Central Train Station, as well. In addition to this, there will also be a railjet running from Salzburg onward to the Vienna airport, so that you can hop off a train and onto an airplane.

    It makes you feel like sitting in a nice little restaurant savouring your coffee.

    ÖBB’s railjet restaurant has 14 seats and is the perfect place to enjoy a culinary treat with pleasant company during your trip. Because the restaurant has something to offer for any craving: from small snack to a complete lunch.
