When planning your Eastern European getaway, rail travel is absolutely the way to go when it comes to traveling between countries. The past few times I’ve visited Europe, I’ve always traveled by train since it is fast, scenic, and usually, quite affordable. But no train has made my jaw drop more than the OBB Railjet, serving many parts of Eastern Europe, but in particular, its famous route between Vienna and Budapest. Your journey lasts about three hours and you are treated to some of the best vistas around.
While riding the Railjet, you will be treated to a stylish and luxurious train trip without having to break the bank. The carriages are equipped with television screens, free Wi-Fi, and delicious snacks to make sure you feel at home on your way to your destination. Gizmos and gadgets are great and all, but the real treat here is the view. With huge windows, every seat is fantastic for taking in some of the most beautiful scenery around.
The Railjet’s Cafe Car has treats for even the pickiest of foodies. The Caprese Panini with fresh mozzarella cheese, imported tomatoes, and creamy basil pesto was a treat to our tastebuds. If you’re in the mood for dessert, the train is stocked with Belgian chocolate and other local favorites to satisfy your sweet tooth to the fullest.
Overall, the Railjet between Vienna and Budapest is an experience that you simply cannot afford to miss. With delicious on board food, picturesque vistas, and comfortable seating, it’s a great way to just sit back and enjoy the ride.
