My Easter trip is coming to the end, I will make one more stop before travelling back home, and it will be in Munich. Today, I'm taking Railjet Express trains from Vienna to Munich, with a short stop in Salzburg.
A car night train at Vienna station
First RJX train is to Salzburg
Railjet is the Austrian high speed train operating at maximum speed of 230km/h. The train is a push pull composition with a Taurus locomotive.
RJX international service to Munich seems to be very popular, it is highly recommended to reserve a seat when travelling with Interrail.
Westbahn is one of the major railways in Austria. It has been upgraded for Railjet maximum operating speed services.
