Seasonal Route will see two services a week from Bratislava – Wien – Graz – Split.
Austrian Rail operator ÖBB has once again expanded its popular NightJet Service, this time with a new Seasonal route to the south. Beginning in mid-June and running until mid-September, the new NightJet, NJ1253/1252 will see two trains a week make the trip from Bratislava via Vienna, Graz, and on to the Croatian city of Split.
The journey by car is often over 8 hours, making the NightJet a pleasant alternative to travel. For motorists there’ll even be a chance to bring your car along, allowing you to roll off the train the next morning refreshed and ready for your day.
The new route is being run in co-operation with ZSSK Slovak Railways and marks a continuation of the partnership found on the hourly REX Vienna – Bratislava route.
Ticket sales begin soon, and the first journey departs on the 18th of June 2021. Departures will be every Tuesday night and Friday night. Prices begin at just €29.90 for a standard seat, rising to €69.90 for a sleeping birth. Departure time from Bratislava is 15.51, Vienna at 18.01, Graz at 21.01, and arrival in Split 09.50 the next morning.
If you’re interested in a longer holiday, ÖBB Rail Holidays will be offering packages from €331 return trip with seat reservations and 7 nights accommodation, per person.
We hope to catch the service over the summer and to experience the ÖBB NightJet Experience. And of course, we’ll write it up here.
