Whether you prefer a pleasant ride around a lake or want to conquer the highest peaks on your mountain bike: countless bike trails throughout Austria await you. On ÖBB trains, you have several options of taking your bicycle along.
You can take your bicycle along on most local and long-distance trains. Within Austria, you will need a special bicycle ticket which costs 10 % of a full price ticket for the route (a minimum fee of 2 Euro applies). In addition to this, you can also purchase weekly or monthly tickets for your bicycle. For international routes, we offer you the Biking International Ticket at a price of 12 Euro.
Taking your bicycle along on regional trains
For local transport (regional train, regional express and S-Bahn), we will be glad to take your bicycle along, if enough free spaces are available. On these trains, it is not possible to reserve a space for your bicycle.
Taking your bicycle along on long-distance trains
On long-distance trains (Railjet, Intercity, Eurocity as well as Euronight trains), you need to reserve a space for your bicycle. Reservations at the ÖBB ticket shop cost 3 Euro. At the ÖBB customer service at +43 (0)5 1717 and at the ÖBB ticket counters, you pay 3.50 Euro for this. Please note: bikes with 29 inch wheels or bigger, tandems, recumbent bikes and bicycle trailers can only be transported in special luggage compartments. Online reservations for these are not possible.
Hints for your departure
- Please find out ahead of time prior to the arrival of the train where the wagon with your reserved bicycle space will come to a stop. For this, signs providing a clear overview of the wagon locations are available on the platform.
- In order to facilitate loading and hanging your bicycle, please remove luggage (panniers, etc.) from your bicycle on time before the arrival of the train.
