Reviews & ratings Vienna - Budapest
"excellent way to travel"Robert f.
we took the train from Budapest to Vienna recently and had no problems, easy to find correct train and seats were comfortable. The staff on board was helpful and pleasant.

The 9.34am from Zurich on a Friday was crowded but comfortable. Travelling at up to 199MPH, and punctual, it enabled us to travel from Zurich to Manchester in one day. Pretty good. We had come from Budapest to Vienna and Vienna to Zurich via the Arlberg pass earlier in the week with a full day in both Vienna and Zurich. Good hotels near the main stations. A great journey home by rail! Only East Coast let us down!
