ÖBB Railjet

The ÖBB Railjet connects Austria and Europe.

With a maximum speed of up to 230 km/h, the Railjet (RJ) takes you through all of Austria to Germany, Italy, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia or Switzerland. The brand new generation of Railjets is in use on the Brenner line between Munich - Innsbruck - Bozen and Veron, and will offer our passengers even more comfort.

Brand new trains & Upgrade programme

There are a total of 27 Railjets new Generation and 14 new Railjet DoSto ordered for use on long distance lines.

From 2024, all existing Railjets will gradually undergo an upgrade program in terms of interior design and technology: In the modernised trains, you can enjoy comfortable seats, a modern design in the cabin, additional buggy storage spaces and baggage rack space, as well as an improved passenger information system. The facilities for taking bicycles on board is also being optimised. 

Additionally, 14 new double decker Railjets have been ordered, which are to be introduced on the western line from 2026.
