Sometimes a so called "Sparschiene"-fare is bookable, on popular routes. For example Innsbruck-Vienna from € 19.- per person or even less.

International tickets

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

Rail passes

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".
