Salzburg-Zurich on overnight train

by muhdhazwan

I intend to travel on an overnight train from Salzburg to Zurich on 16th Aug. I've checked the obb website and just want to confirm if it is stated as departing 00:44h, does it mean it will depart on the 15th/16th or 16th/17th morning?

And is it better to reserve a ticket or buy the ticket at the station itself? Plus what is there to do while waiting for the train? Is there a place to sleep/rest at the station? I hope someone can help me. Thanks.

If you go to

http://www.oebb.at/en/index.jsp

and enter 16th August and 00:00, then click 'search connection' you will see that the date is displayed by the train time/details.

If you enter that date and time the 00:44 will depart just after midnight on 16th.

I would suggest that booking tickets in advance for overnight trains is best, expecially if you want a couchette or sleeper.

It is definitely better to purchase tickets in advance (online) since there are discounted SparSchiene tickets available for OEBB-SBB connections (from 29 euro seats, 39 euro couchette etc.)

Sorry, I am still unclear about the timing. So if I check on the 16th aug and time is 00:00, the 00:44 train will be departing on 17th aug at 00:44h right?

Re: Salzburg-Zurich on overnight train

by leics

No.

If you look at the date next to the 00:44 train it says it is 16th (assuming you searched for 16th).

If you want a train which leaves on 17th you must search for 17th.

The date is right next to the train times and details.

It is not a matter of what time you check the website, it is a matter of searching for the date on which you wish to travel.

so if you want to travel on 16th, put in 16th.

If you want to travel on 17th, put in 17th.

The train departs at 44 minutes past midnight on the day you want to travel or to put it another way 16 minutes prior to 1AM

Ok now I understand. Thanks a lot.

Travel Tips for Salzburg

Wander into the Land of Mozart

by adambeau

Without a doubt, go see the Residenzplatz.... or, Hohensalzburg, or St. Peter's Cemetary... no, the Salzburg Cathedral is a must... no, don't forget the Glockenspiel... no, you must dine at Sacher Cafe and try those sacher tortes... umm..... Mozartplatz is a must see, and his Geburtshaus. (ok...you decide.) In addition to the most pleasurable people residing in Baroque Salzburg, the landscape that cradles this remarkable city makes my heart beat a little faster with every treasured memory.

Under Some Crawling Plants....

by coceng

I am just sharing with you guys some photos that include myself that people took...
First, the photo in the Garden Schloss Mirabell...underneath these crawling plants....
What do you call that?..A Tunnel with Crawling Plants... ?
It's like an artwork, isn't it ?

Oldest Restaurant and Pharmacy

by WrigleyTodd

Salzburg is home to the oldest restaurant in Europe... Peterstiftkeller, which originated circa 803 and still serves food and drink today. Although, I hear the service isn't that great. Also, from what I understand, Europe's oldest pharmacy is also in town. Not sure if it is the oldest, or just old, but it has some appeal like that. So, if you like historic pharmacies... check it out. Probably not for everyone.

Coffee House Habits

by hunterV

One of the truly Austrian habits is to spend some time weekly at the coffeehouse.
"It's Austria!", they say.
It's really relaxing to sit and drink nice coffee with a piece of cake!
Isn't it marvelous!

Plan your wardrobe to include layers.

by Georgiantraveler

Remember if you are going to travel via train(and doing so is quite comfortable and affordable), to bring two or three small bags that can be carried and loaded quickly. German / Austrian rail run on the most efficient and unforgiving schedule. It is always easier to toss a small bag to a helping hand to get on board before the train departs, and Most trunks in European autos are not quite as large US, so smaller bags can be manipulated as needed. The weather throughtout all of Europe can change on a dime, especially in the Summer. I've seen from 42 - 98 (F) degrees in June. Make sure you bring light to medium clothing to layer, so that you are not strapped with a heavy coat that you must carry even if it never gets cold. A medium windbreaker should be sufficient on even cooler days when paired with an undershirt, dress shirt and sweater. Powdered Gatorade packets and Peppermint Lifesavers are a highly mobile, simple remedy to many gastric problems you may have in traveling. Gatorade is wonderful for those times you cannot hold anything else down, but you have to keep going (The show must go on, especially on a tour package).
