Villach to Salzburg

Transferring from the bus to the train is straight forward as the station is across the road from where we are dropped off.

First class is up the front and there are separate compartments shared by up to six people. We had half expected one to ourselves but a mother and her young son join us for most of the time.

The trip is very smooth, traversing across open plains at the foot of snow-covered mountains.

There are several stops as we pass through small towns and cities alike. It is all very picturesque and postcard-like, especially when we climb through the alps blanketed in white magic.

Aboard the train there is the opportunity to purchase drinks, sandwiches and snacks. The menu is neither comprehensive nor inexpensive but it is adequate.

The journey takes just 2 1/2 hours.
