Vienna is just a train ride away

The EGU is pleased to support the initiative of Swiss colleagues to reduce the carbon footprint of your travel to the EGU General Assembly 2019. Why not consider going to Vienna by train?

Take the train from Zurich to Vienna and SBB offers you a CHF25 discount. There are two ways to reach your destination. You could either take the ÖBB Nightjet and arrive well rested in the morning or the ÖBB Railjet which takes you to Vienna smoothly during the day while you are preparing yourself for the assembly.


Prices for the ÖBB Railjet connections start from CHF144 for a return ticket (2nd class, supersaver ticket, no exchange/refund, subject to availability). Prices for the ÖBB Nightjet connections start from CHF136 for a return ticket in a 4-bed couchette (Bargain price, no exchange/refund, subject to availability).
