Domestic train tickets
Domestic train tickets are based on a fare per kilometre, a few examples: Salzburg-Graz: €73,80, Salzburg-Vienna, €58,40 and Vienna-Graz €41,40. All long distance trains offer both second and first class, regional trains second class only.
Sometimes a so called "Sparschiene"-fare is bookable, on popular routes. For example Innsbruck-Vienna from € 19.- per person or even less.
A seat reservation is not compulsory, but can be useful on busy travel times like weekends or holidays. Seat reservation is possible on Railjet/ICE/EC and IC-trains for €4,50 per person. Sales for domestic tickets start 6 months before travel date.
For international journeys from Germany there are “Super Sparpreis-Europa”-fares available. These fares start at €19 for short journeys like Munich-Salzburg and €39 for longer journeys like Cologne-Vienna. Prices are subject to availability, early booking is recommended.
Booking starts 6 months before travel date for night trains and 3 months before travel date for day trains. International fares are also available on all routes from Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
If you’re planning to make several (longer) journeys within Austria the Interrail One Country Pass might be a useful purchase. Prices start at € 146 for second class and € 195 in first class for 3 flexible days in a month, there are also passes available for 4, 5, 6 or 8 days in a month. Seat reservation is not compulsory, but can be useful on long distances or busy days. Booking can be made on top of this page by selecting "Passes".
If you're from abroad (not a resident of Europe), please look for Eurail instead of Interrail.
