Travel inspiration in Vienna and Salzburg
Vienna, the capital of Austria
Vienna is the capital city of Austria and home to approximately 1,6 million inhabitants. Vienna is the seat of many multinationals and is becoming more and more important as a centre for trade between Western and Eastern Europe. Vienna is also a city of green parks, calm, dreamy alleys, art and music. This city is rightly deemed a city worth living in, being a cosmopolitan city of culture and gastronomy.
Salzburg, the birthplace of Mozart
Salzburg is the fourth largest of Austria. It is located on the banks of Salzach river, near the German borders and north of the Alps. The city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Salzburg is famed for its old world glamour, made all the more striking by the majestic backdrop of snow-capped Alps.
Over 4,000 events are held each year including the Easter, Whitsun and Summer Festivals, Dialogs at the Mozarteum, the Sommerszene, Jazz Festival, Culture Days and Advent Singing. A multitude of museums, galleries, sculptures and exhibitions promise an unlimited cultural experience.
Reviews & ratings Vienna - Salzburg
"Train to Venice"Priscilla e.
We thoroughly enjoyed this train ride, from first boarding in Vienna with the goodie bags set out for us through arrival in Venice in the morning. The ride was comfortable and the porter was friendly and helpful. We look forward to taking this train again.

"Enjoyable trip"Raymon C D s. 17/04/2014
I used Austria Night Train from Wien Westbahnhof to Venezia S Lucia with my wife and daughter. We took the T3 Sleeper. The cabin in seating position is a little bit small and cramp - not leaving extra space inside the cabin. We had 4 cabin size luggage and we were feeling lucky that we have the cabin size luggage because otherwise it will take up so much space. Once the seat changed to bed mode, then it is more comfortable. We can lie down and take a sleep. I was surprised with the amenities, we got water, slippers, tooth brush and sparkling wine. However, they were quite bulky and take up so much space. Overall, the bed is comfortable so we can sleep throughout the night. In the morning we got some breakfast but they were all very minimal. The staff was very friendly and make the trip become more enjoyable. So, I would recommend this mode of transportation: 1) you save your airfare cost and 2) you save on your one night hotel because you can sleep in the train :)
"71 year old couple"Geoffrey d. 11/11/2013
The 9.34am from Zurich on a Friday was crowded but comfortable. Travelling at up to 199MPH, and punctual, it enabled us to travel from Zurich to Manchester in one day. Pretty good. We had come from Budapest to Vienna and Vienna to Zurich via the Arlberg pass earlier in the week with a full day in both Vienna and Zurich. Good hotels near the main stations. A great journey home by rail! Only East Coast let us down!
"Munich to Salzburg"Marda s. 29/10/2013
I pre-booked this trip from Singapore. I was able to collect the ticket from their Singapore office immediately after booking. Arriving in Munich, finding my seat number was easy and it was reserved for me. The train left and arrived on time and the entire trip was smooth. The staff who check the tickets were also polite.
"From Maribor to Vienna "Marda s. 12/10/2013
Clean, comfortable, punctual journey. Good timings. A bit on the costly side. 4 stars
