While you're there

Vienna is Austria’s capital and largest city located on the east part of the country. Undoubtedly one of the most charming European capitals, Vienna is one of the world’s leading cities with the best quality of life in the world. The imperial capital is elegant and cosy with beautiful parks and statues of great musicians.

Starting in the morning, visit the baroque-stylef Schönbrunn Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage site, where Mozart played as a five years old kid for the Empress Maria Theresia. The extraordinary imperial park houses the world’s oldest zoo!
Most buildings of interest are in the old town, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The most outstanding among them are the Stephansdom Gothic cathedral - where Mozart got married, the Imperial Palace Hofburg, the Kapuzinerkirche church where the Imperial Habsburg family is buried, the pedestrian Kärtnerstrasse and Der Graben. Have a look at the magnificent Opera, the Parliament, the City Hall and the sumptuous Burgtheather.
Dedicate the second day to discover the modern Vienna, to visit one of its numerous museums and meeting other facets of the city.
Attend a morning equitation exercise in the Spanish Riding School and a concert of the Vienna Boys Choir. Throughout the year, except during the summer, you can attend an opera or ballet at the State Opera or listen to a concert in the magical Grosser Saal hall at the Musikverein.

In the evening, enjoy a casual dinner with popular music in one traditional tavern in the neighbourhood of Grinzing (take tram 38). Have a glass of the Gruner Vertliner or Gemischter Satz wine accompanied by a Viennese speciality such as Tapfelspitz (boiled beef) or Wiener Schnitzel topped by a Kartoffelsalat (potato salad).

Some of the most popular streets for shopping are: Kärntner Straße, the most famous shopping street in Vienna. This street has the most expensive and exclusive shops in Vienna; Mariahilfer Straße, the longest shopping street in Vienna with small boutiques and big department stores, many snack-bars, cafés, old Viennese coffeehouses and restaurants.

  • "family holiday"    
    excellent service very comfortable and punctual great way to travel  
  • "The way to go"    
    Great train. Bit slow but that just gives more time to catch some great scenery. Free wi fi is excellent.  
  • "Train from Salzburg to Vienna"    
    The only complaint that I have concerns another passenger who refused to vacate my reserved seat until other German speaking passengers intervened. The conductor was not patrolling the coaches and I was unable to complain to him.  
  • "Better than the plane"    
    Train was comfortable, and very punctual! Much better than catching a plane as you don't have to check in or having to arrive at the terminal at a specific time so long you're on board before the departure time! The only recommendation would be to include a map for tourist as to which terminal in certain cities.  
  • "Great train trip"    
    Really enjoyed the overnight train. A great way to travel!  
  • "Praha Wien return"    
    Excellent service and relaxing trip between 2 beautiful capital cities.  
  • "Staff to the rescue"    
    We travelled from Vienna to Florence changing trains at Venice. I left the ticket for the Venice to Florence on the table in the train from Vienna. We discovered our mistake when we got off the train and told the station staff. We had photocopies of our tickets to help confirm our story. The staff at Venice made phone calls and told us to get onto the train for Florence. Everything was ok we were told. We did so. The ticket staff on the train to Florence found us and gave us our original tickets. They had found the tickets I had left behind and passed them on from our first train to the next. GREAT STAFF. THANK YOU.  
  • "Day travel, wonderful views"    
    We chose to travel during the day for the views. This was a good decision as it covered the distance in quick time and also enabled us to enjoy the scenery.  
  • "more detail needed"    
    No trains were offered to Keleti (the main station) when selecting trains. Also, there was no business class option available (only second and first), so seating was confusing when I got on business class, thinking it was first class, and was made to pay more on the spot. More detail and options are needed on the website.  
  • "Half-day intercity train legs "    
    Daylight trip - small surcharge for pre-booking stages (in conjunction with pre-booked B  
  • "Austria/Paris"    
    Difficult to get a reservation on Vienna/Zurich leg and only when we arrived in Vienna understood why. Work on tracks and we had to get off train and travel an hour by coach to another station to pick up the train again. If that had been told us when we were trying to book seats we maybe would have chosen another route. On asking the guard/porter to help us off with our luggage his reply was "Do it yourself" in perfect English. Difficult when the trains so high off the platforms. Another problem was places to stow our luggage once we got onto the train. Not always room. Other than these points the actual travel was good.  
  • "Efficient"    
    A comfortable trip. Everything was as it should be. The only thing missing was the ability to get a glass of water. Yes, it could be purchased as a bottle from the vendor, should be automatically available on board.. Could have been better informed as to where on the one Kilometer long platform it would stop. Title says it all.  
  • "Railjet to Wien"    
    The trip was very comfortable  
  • "Convenient Trip"    
    OK trip. Quick no hassles. Luggage is always a problem on IC and ICE trains in Europe. Never enough room for everyone's luggage.  
  • "Easy and relaxing"    
    The train trip itself was outstandingly quiet and comfortable and the service was excellent. As with almost all trains, the only negative issues are manhandling the suitcases onto and off the train.
