Connecting Austria and Europe

Railjet trains running at regular intervals connect Austria with its neighbouring countries. Two Railjets run between Vienna and Salzburg every hour. The fastest connection is the Railjet Xpress (RJX), which on the route between Vienna and Salzburg only stops in St. Pölten and Linz, before continuing to Innsbruck and Feldkirch every hour. Munich or Zurich can be reached every two hours.
The Railjet (RJ) also offers perfect connections, with additional stops in Tullnerfeld, Amstetten, St. Valentin, Wels, Attnang-Puchheim, Vöcklabruck and Neumarkt-Köstendorf. Railjet trains bound for Innsbruck and Feldkirch via Salzburg leave Vienna at hourly intervals.

Every hour, an ÖBB Railjet takes you from Vienna to Graz. Every two hours, a Railjet runs directly from Prague or Vienna Airport to Graz via Vienna.

You can also take the ÖBB Railjet to travel from Vienna to Villach via Klagenfurt. Twice a day, the Railjet continues beyond Carinthia all the way to Venice.

ÖBB Railjets travel to Vienna International Airport via Vienna Meidling and Vienna Central Station twice an hour. With Bregenz, Innsbruck, Salzburg, Linz and St. Pölten, the Railjet offers direct connections to Vienna International Airport from a total of five Austrian state capitals along the western route. There are 5 direct daily Railjet connections per direction for passengers travelling to Vienna International Airport from Graz.

Another 3 Railjet trains run on the Tauern route between Klagenfurt and Salzburg every day. This means that there is a direct Railjet connection from Klagenfurt to Munich and direct connections from the Tauern route (e.g. Gastein Valley) to Vienna via the western route.

Since 2018 Sovakia is also integrated into the Railjet network with a train pair running between Bratislava, Vienna, Salzburg and Zürich.
