Railjet in brief
The modern, perhaps even futuristic Railjet trains are the new high-speed service from the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB). They operate at speeds of up to 200km/h (124mph), with a planned increase to 230km/h (143mph).

The Railjet carriages are the ultimate in comfort and luxury. With top modern equipment and generous compartment space, the Railjet guarantees its passengers a unique travel experience.

The train snakes through pretty Bavarian countryside as you approach the Alps. It winds by rivers and past farmland and wind turbines, offering truly breathtaking scenery throughout Austria.
