On the Westbahn to Salzburg

Private railway company WESTbahn provides train passengers with service from Wien Westbahnhof (“Vienna West”) to Salzburg Main Station – at especially affordable prices.

WESTbahn – fast and affordable

A ride on the WESTbahn from Vienna via Linz to Salzburg, with stops in Wien Hütteldorf, St. Pölten, Amstetten, Linz, Wels and Attnang-Puchheim, costs just 26.50 euro one-way. Aside from the inexpensive fare, the short travel time (2 h 28 min) really appeals to rail travelers: Before you know it, you will be able to immerse yourself in the pulsating lifestyle of our City of Mozart.

WESTbahn – rail travel with every convenience

In order to make the ride as pleasant as possible, WESTbahn focuses on high service quality and personal assistance from the train attendants.  Free WiFi in all trains helps the time to fly by. And if you need a short refreshment break along the way, treat yourself to hot or cold beverages as well as tasty snacks from the four WESTcafés on board. Genuine leather seats as well as extra legroom throughout the train guarantee added comfort.

WESTbahn – the expanded offer

Aside from its permanent offers, WESTbahn appeals to passengers with its seasonal discounts as well as especially affordable tickets for students and seniors. Furthermore, WESTbahn travelers are also able to connect at the rail hub in Salzburg to MERIDIAN, alex, as well as trains operated by DB Regio to Upper Bavaria, the Allgäu and Lake Constance – thanks to low-rate combo tickets. Combo transfers provided by WESTbahn and FlixBus also mean it’s easier than ever for city travelers and one-day tourists to reach their destination.
