Overview

Breathtaking views on the Alps and Art in each place, Austria will offer you a symphony of colors by mixing nature, culture, music and baroque architecture.

Austria is located in the heart of Europe and is bordered by Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Holidays in Austria are synonymous with unforgettable experiences in unique locations. It is a small country full of cultural surprises, with a stunning nature and where you will enjoy the great hospitality of locals. The origins of present-day Austria dates back to the Habsburg Dynasty. Nine dreamed-of places are declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Austria’s railway network is operated by the Austrian Federal Railways also known as Österreichische Bundesbahnen in German (ÖBB). The railway network in Austria is made up of over 6000 km of tracks. The national railway company of Austria runs and operates the Railjet, a high speed train which can travel at a speed of up to 230 km/h. There are of course other trains which are operated in Austria. In main cities like Vienna, there is the S-Bahn and U-Bahn, and a tramway network. In Graz, Salzburg, Innsbruck there is the S-Bahn.

Cityscape

Mozart’s melodies are still resounding in each city of Austria. If you are a music lover, take a train to Salzburg, Linz or even both and enjoy the scenery. While you are there, don’t miss the museums and the numerous art galleries. Go for a walk in Vienna, the inevitable Capital, and discover its markets, museums, shops and its busy nightlife. In Austria music is in the air! The choice of classical music is infinite and there is nothing more exciting than following the footsteps of Mozart, Austria’s prodigal son and Johann Strauss, the waltz king, both great composers of international renown. Who has not dreamed of attending the legendary New Year’s Concert in the Musikverein with the Vienna Philharmonic in the impressive Golden Hall?

Landscape

If you need a change of scenery, go on board to a train and admire the magnificent Alps. If you’re interested in history, Austria would be the perfect trip: historical towns and archeological sites such as Carnuntum that will thrill you! The Austrian Alps are unique for those wishing to go hiking or just enjoying the extraordinary panoramic views by taking a mountain cable car. The Krimml Waterfalls, the highest in Europe, and the ice caves of Werfen, the largest in the world, both in the region of Salzburgerland, reflect the wonders of nature.

Take Home

If you want to bring back home a typical product to your family and friends, you should buy some hand-painted porcelain or Mozart’s candle. You can also get some Swarovski Crystal, directly made in the Alpine factory.

Eat & Drink

You should make a diet before (or after) going to Austria, if you really want to enjoy the gastronomy. Tafelspitz (Beef Stew), goulash (soup), or Wiener Schnitzel (veal preparation). Those are the delicious specialities but not adapted if you’ve expected to lose weight. Taste the different drinks and coffees while you’re savoring the Sacher-Torte, the famous chocolate cake.

New Perspective

Take the Zillertalbahn Train, an old 19th century steam train, and admire the Tyrolean landscapes, it will give to your holidays in Austria a romantic and charming touch of originality.

    Comfortable, but mixed review |
    "It was not clear online that wifi is only provided once we crossed the border into Germany. Wifi also did not work on my connecting ICE train between Frankfurt and Munich, which was a disappointment as I needed to contact those meeting me upon my arrival. There were no lockers for my suitcase, despite it being advertised online so I had to keep it next to me as was too big to go overhead. Otherwise, a nice, yet expensive for value, experience. "

    Across the Alps |
    "Our trip from Vienna to Innsbruck by rail was excellent. Very few passengers in our coach meant plenty of empty seats and windows to view out of. The countryside was beautiful. One minute you are looking at open farmland, the next mountain tops covered in snow. The four and half hours disappeared quickly, from boarding the train in Vienna and the next you are alighting in Innsbruck. I would recommend this train trip to any traveler fortunate enough to be holidaying in Austria. Both Vienna and Innsbruck are two cities you need to put in your must visit. "

    Hamburg to Nurnberg |
    "The train was comfortable and was on time. We found the Wi-Fi useful too. There was not enough room for our luggage and these had to be kept in the entrance foyer of the carriage so I found myself having to get up at every stop to make sure they were not in the way of entering and exiting passengers. other passengers had theirs in corridors, so additional luggage space would be beneficial. Also we found that there was a conflict of seat numbers as there was someone in one of our seats when we boarded and during the course of the trip another passenger had the same seat number as us and the train guard was called to sort it out. These things made the trip a little awkward but apart from this the trip was pleasurable. "
