Experience Budapest to Vienna by train with ÖBB, the Austrian company that takes rail travel to new levels with effortless speed, supreme comfort and exceptional onboard services. Though some EuroCity express trains are used to make the connection, their state-of-the-art Railjet high-speed trains are the primary line for transporting passengers between the two capital cities. Reaching a top speed of 230 km/h, the Railjet can make the journey in just over 2 and a half hours non-stop.
From Budapest, Hungary, you’ll travel to the imperial city of Vienna, Austria. Discover the Baroque-era buildings, majestic palaces and cobblestone streets that inspired Vienna’s rich artistic and musical history (Beethoven, Mozart and Maria von Trapp being among the city’s most notable former residents!). Also popular, are the many quaint coffee shops and fine-dining restaurants that just radiate with Viennese charm. During your stay, be sure to visit the Natural History Museum, Austrian National Library and St. Stephen’s Cathedral.
Your ÖBB “Paper Ticket and Reservation” can be purchased here and includes your seat reservation. Shortly after placing your order, we will ship you the actual ticket by mail. Simply present this ticket at the station and you’ll be ready to travel from Budapest to Vienna by train!
