Rail News: Direct Vienna to Venice Trains Once Again...

Jump to last reply

For eons there were direct Vienna to Venice day trains taking about 7.5 hours all told

But the past few years have seen the axing of these trains and the re-routing of most Vienna to Venice daytime travel via Innsburck or Sazlburg and involving 2-3 changes all told and taking nearly 10 hours!. (

Though there is currently but a single day time train leaving Veinna Meidling (sp?) station around 6:30am that takes about 7.5 hours direct to Venice Santa Lucia, currently all other links seem to go on the roundabout routing via a change in Salzburg or Innsbruck or elsewhere and even transferring to buses at Villach, the Austrian border station.

Hopefully more direct daytime trains will be added and at a later hour. I've ridden the Vienna to BVenice daytime routing and it was quite scenic, especially in Austria..

And overnight trains also roll directly between Vienna and Venice..

Bugt soon
