You can travel directly from Graz to Salzburg or in the opposite direction five times a day by Eurocity or Intercity. With two further highly convenient connecting services, trains run between Graz and Salzburg every two hours. Two Eurocitys provide a direct service daily via Salzburg between Graz and Frankfurt am Main or Saarbrücken.
You can also travel from Graz to Innsbruck by Intercity during the day. Moreover, the Eurocity 163/164 (Transalpin), which terminates in Zurich, will take you from Graz via Innsbruck directly to Switzerland. This train gives you the opportunity to travel in its (first class) panoramic coach through the Alps via Schladming, Zell am See and Kitzbühel to Zurich and enjoy the magnificent mountain scenery from the comfort of the train.
You can also sleep through the stretch from Graz via Bischofshofen and Innsbruck to Zurich: travelling by the ÖBB night train, you’ll arrive refreshed at your destination the next morning. And on journeys between Graz and Feldkirch you can also take your car or motorbike with you.
There are direct trains between Graz and Linz twice a day by Intercity, and additional connecting services (REX trains between Selzthal and Linz) mean there is a service every two hours.
