IconVery nice staff
IconComfort

IconDelay
IconStrong shaking during the ride
IconWCs
The journey from Vienna back to Munich was one of the last stops on my return journey from Budapest. I can't complain about the comfort. Very nice and helpful staff played a big part. Only unfortunately the shaking during the journey made it a bit uncomfortable. Unfortunately, the toilets are not the cleanest and delays cannot be avoided. Nevertheless, the train ride is worth it for such a price.
Pro
IconClean WCs
IconComfortable seats
IconSockets
IconGood wifi
Contra
IconAnnouncements too loud
When I took the Westbahn, I immediately noticed the good wifi. I have travelled with the Westbahn very often, but this time I have to say that this was the best journey of all so far. The toilets are clean as always and the staff are also nice. It's very easy to make a reservation. Every seat has a power socket and they all work. The Westbahn is also always on time. The announcements are a bit loud, but it's still good value for money.
Pro
Iconfast without changing
Contra
IconNo rest in the rest area
This was a comfortable, entertaining train ride. Thanks to wifi and a power socket on the train, I was able to stream films without any problems. It was a direct connection from Vienna to Munich without hectic transfers. Unfortunately, there was no peace and quiet in the so-called rest area. I noticed the cleanliness, also in the toilets, positively. Good price-performance ratio.
Pro
IconNice staff
IconComfort
IconGood value
Contra
IconDelays
IconWIFI
IconNo sockets
IconPoor hygiene
A few days ago, we were on a day trip in Vienna and decided to take the train on the way back. It was super easy and spontaneous to book the tickets and in itself it is a very cheap thing to do. The staff was very nice and fortunately there was no lack of comfort this time. Only disappointingly, I have to mention the delays of the trains again. In addition, of course, there was once again a lack of hygiene and unclean toilets. Unfortunately, the wifi wasn't the best either, and since we had often used our mobile phones after such a long day and wanted to charge them, there were no sockets at our seats (unfortunately, this was very annoying).
Pro
IconOn time
IconClean
IconFew stops
Contra
IconHeight difference between platform and wagon
The train was on time as almost always, the carriage including the toilet was clean. The staff was friendly as always. In 1st class, as usual, there was a socket between the seats and it worked. The wifi also worked perfectly. The train was on time to Freilassing. The railway cannot be held responsible for the delay due to border controls. The train only stops 4 times between Vienna and Munich and I would recommend it to anyone travelling this route. The only negative point would be the difference in height between the carriage and the platform in both Vienna and Munich. Difficult with heavy luggage or physical limitations.
Pro

IconClean toilet
IconUSB sockets
IconComfortable seats
Contra
IconDeparted 2 min too late
The train journey by ICE from Vienna to Munich was very pleasant. The seats were comfortable and allowed for restful sleep. The USB sockets at the seat were extremely practical and the clean toilets pleased me even more. The only minor criticism is that the train left 2 minutes late, but that was not really a problem for me. I can really recommend this train trip to everyone, especially for business trips.
Pro
IconQuiet train ride
IconGood information dissemination
Contra
IconRather expensive
IconToo few resting cars
Comfort: the train is fast but very quiet, you don't feel disturbed. Of course, you can't choose the people sitting next to you, sometimes it was a bit noisy, but the train can't do much about that. Catering: there was a bistro car where you could get something to eat. Service: I always felt well informed about the status of the journey (information about the next stops, etc.).
Pro
IconFast drive
IconRailjet Express is better than ICE
Contra
IconNothing negative
The journey from Vienna to Munich is very pleasant on the RJ Express. The journey only takes 4 hours. In addition, the RJ trains of the Austrian Federal Railway are very clean, the seats are comfortable and the prices are acceptable even in first class. The wifi is better than on the German railway. Unfortunately, however, the economy fare in conjunction with first class does not give you access to the DB Lounge.
Pro
IconVery nice travel experience
IconPleasant and fast
Contra
IconEverything went without a hitch
The train connection was very punctual. The timetable was adhered to exactly, which made for a smooth journey. The ticket price was reasonable for the services offered. The option to book in advance gave me a more favourable fare. The cleanliness of the train was mostly good. The seats and general area were tidy. The free wifi on the train worked perfectly, the connection was stable and the speed made it easy to use internet services. The toilets were acceptable, but there was room for improvement. Some restocking such as toilet paper or hand soap would be desirable. Overall, I liked the train connection very much. Hence my recommendation.

Overall, the train was 100% convincing. The staff on board were pleasant and professional. It was a lot of fun travelling on this beautiful route. Apart from that, there was also a lot of delicious food on offer. The train left Vienna on time and arrived in Munich on the dot. There was no need to change trains.
Pro

Contra
IconPunctuality
IconTrain cancellation
IconUnplanned changeover
My journey from Vienna to Munich was affected by the Deutsche Bahn strike and only went as far as Salzburg. There I had to change unscheduled to the BOB regional train to continue my journey to Munich. It was pleasantly quiet in my 2nd class carriage due to the small number of passengers. I had a table and a power socket at my seat. The wifi was interrupted from time to time, which made it difficult to work with my laptop. A restaurant car and WC were available, but I did not make use of them.
Pro
IconPunctuality
IconCleanliness
The train connection was mostly on time, which was very positive. The fare was reasonable, but there were some inconveniences. The cleanliness was acceptable, but improvements can be made. The wifi worked well for the most part, but there were moments of poor connection. The toilets were clean and well equipped. Seating comfort was average, lacking adjustable seats. Overall a reliable train service, but small improvements could greatly enhance the experience.
