By train

ÖBB (Austrian Federal Railways)

The tickets issued by Sparschiene Österreich and Sparschiene Europa are a particularly affordable way to travel. As these tickets are released in blocks, they should be booked as early as possible (up to six months before departure).

Night train ÖBB Nightjet

Traveling overnight gains valuable holiday time. Whether in a standard seat, couchette or sleeper carriage, passengers will arrive at their destination rested and refreshed. Either individual seats or entire compartments can be booked (e.g. a private compartment in the couchette car for a special price, particularly suitable for families).

Discounted Sparschiene tickets can also be booked on all night trains.

Car and motorcycle transport on the ÖBB Nightjet
Motor vehicles can also be transported on the following night train routes:

  • Feldkirch - Vienna
  • Hamburg - Vienna
  • Livorno - Vienna

Note: A passenger ticket must be purchased for each passenger in the vehicle in addition to the ticket for the vehicle itself.
