From December 11, 2022, the private railway company Westbahn will operate three times a day between Wien-Westbahnhof and Innsbruck Hauptbahnhof. There will also be stopovers in Kufstein and Wörgl.

The private challenger has also been traveling to Munich since April of this year. The Stadler-Kiss-3 sets of the Westbahn run between Salzburg and Munich-East without stopping. The extension of the main route to Innsbruck is the second major expansion step to be taken this year. The Austrian Federal Railways had previously withdrawn an objection to the allocation of the necessary train paths, thereby paving the way.

From December 11, 2022, the company will be offering three direct connections per day from Vienna to Innsbruck and back. In addition to the stops between Vienna and Salzburg, there are also stops in Kufstein and Wörgl on the way to the Tyrolean capital. From the timetable change in December, you can get from the Danube to the Inn with the Westbahn departures from Vienna Westbahnhof at 7.08 a.m. (Innsbruck at 11.29 a.m.), 11.08 a.m. (at 15.29 p.m.) and 17.08 p.m. (at 21.29 p.m.). In the opposite direction, the trains start in Innsbruck at 6.31 a.m. (Wien Westbahnhof at 10.52 a.m.), 12.31 p.m. (at 16.52 p.m.) and 16.31 p.m. (at 20.52 p.m.). The trains run from Salzburg without stopping via the German Corner to Kufstein.

"In recent years there have been frequent inquiries from the federal states west of Salzburg as to when the west will finally go there. We are very pleased that we can now start the new direct connection to Tyrol - and at a very attractive price for travelers: With the Westsuperpreis you can travel from Vienna to Tyrol or vice versa from just 18,99 euros," says Thomas Posch , Managing Director of Westbahn. “Of course we also want to accept all valid network tickets in the Innsbruck – Kufstein section. To this end, we are holding constructive talks with the Verkehrsverbund Tirol and assume that there will be a solution by the time the timetable changes.”
