Updates - Current border situation - International train traffic

Current restrictions

In view of the current situation, passenger services are presently experiencing significant reductions. For example, international train services to many countries have been suspended. You can obtain further information about this from our route information service. The timetable changes have been integrated into the ÖBB timetable and are available in SCOTTY and from ÖBB Customer Services on 05-1717.

Please make sure to find out about your preferred connection in advance.

Overview of the changes


Many professions depend on functioning public transport. ÖBB and its employees are therefore still in action and ensure that you get to your destination reliably and safely every day.

On 5 July 2021, the ÖBB have returned to their normal timetable after the emergency award on the western route has expired and increased their train service.

We ask the passengers to find out about the desired connection in the timetable information SCOTTY as well as at the ÖBB customer service on 05-1717 before starting their journey.

Before you start your journey, please contact the authorities of the respective countries to find out about any entry requirements or hygiene measures (compulsory masks). The current entry requirements for Austria can be found on the website of BMK.

Nightjet and EuroNight services


Until further notice, single seats can be booked on ÖBB Nightjets in the seating carriage, couchette carriage with 4-person compartments, or in the sleeper carriage. For maximum privacy, the compartments in the three comfort categories can also be booked as a separate (private) compartment. This enables you to travel in a compartment with just your family or friends, without having to share it with other passengers who are not in your group.

You can find full details about private compartments on the website or by calling ÖBB customer service on 05-1717.
