Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 May 2018

Got cheated on railway platform by a stranger by suggesting to exchange money out of courtesy to his family I exchanged and later realized all notes are fake so be aware from such people on Prague Railway Station, refuse to even talk with them, more you talk more you are into it, beware

We chose this train from Vienna to Salzburg instead of the OBB Rail jet.
Pricing was very low and quality was very high.
We bought the Westbahn Plus tickets with seat reservation which cost 90 Euros for two fares.
The leather seats and First Class fit out was incredibly clean and comfortable. We didn't expect to have a table and 4 seats to ourselves.
We had great views from the big windows on the top deck. The countryside is amazing - the sunny Spring day was a bonus.
We had total peace of mind that our luggage would be completely safe, thanks to the steel cable locking system on the luggage rack which was below us and out if sight.
The train has a top speed of 200kmph and covered the distance in under 2.5 hours but is so smooth and quiet it doesn't cause any alarm whatsoever.
The disappointing factor was the lack of assistance from the OBB staff at the station, who claimed to not know what platform this opposition train would leave from.

Westbahn offers frequent trains which are comfy, have WiFi, and are reasonably priced. I got tickets from Vienna to Linz for 8 euros each way. Hard to beat those prices!

Westbahn is clean, fast and has convenient schedules.

We used Westbahn from Vienna to Linz.
Linz —> Salzburg and Salzburg —> Linz.
We really liked how you can pay on the train. Makes traveling very flexible.

We then used the ÖBB Railjet from Linz to the Vienna airport. As a foreigner I think Westbahn was the easiest and least stressful.

We took WESTbahn train from Salzberg to Vienna. The train was very on time, new, fast & comfortable, definitely the best train I have took so far. The wifi wasn’t working on the train. There is a cafeteria on the train with limited choices.

I was surprising there wasn’t any blocked gantry into the train platform. There is no staff on the platform and no WESTbahn service counter as well, so technically anyone could get on board. But there are staffs checking ticket with a mobile scanner once the train leaves and they checked multiple times.

It was challenging to find the right platform at Salzberg station, as there are multiple train operators and we had to ask around to find the correct platform. Still it was a very good train trip. Strongly recommended!
