The city bears the hallmarks of more than a thousand years of history: Magyars and kings live on in monuments and street names, the Turks passed on a wonderful spa culture, and the Habsburgs have left their architectural fingerprints behind. Explore the many historical highlights, or combine your city trip with some wellness time in one of the famous thermal baths.
There is a Railjet or Eurocity service every hour between Vienna and the Danube metropolis. Meanwhile, from Salzburg and Linz, you can take a Railjet to the Hungarian capital every two hours, without having to change trains. We also offer convenient connections from western Austria, on the Railjet during the day and the Nightjet at night. From Styria, you can take one of our comfortable Eurocity trains directly from Graz to Budapest via Györ.
Speaking of Györ, its baroque, colourful houses are the stuff of dreams, and you can watch as the Raab and the Little Danube flow into the Danube proper. The ÖBB Sparschiene can also take you on a shopping trip to Sopron or to Debrecen, Hungary’s second-largest city, where you can enjoy many thermal baths and the Hortobágy National Park.
You need to reserve a seat if you are transferring to an Intercity in Hungary. You can also book these online in the ÖBB Ticketshop.
