Train from Prague to Salzburg via Linz - Booking Prague to Linz segment concern as it is only available within 30 days in high season!

In taking the train from Prague to Salzburg, by far the quickest route is to connect in Linz. However, the Prague to Linz route is only bookable 30 days ahead whereas the Linz to Salzburg can be booked much further in advance. Should I be concerned about not being able to get seats 30 days in advance during high season? What happens if I book the second segment between Linz and Salzburg now and cannot get seats once the first opens up? Thanks in advance. Sincerely, Stressed

    Hi Benjamin,

    Great question. For these trains, I wouldn't worry about that. You should not have any issue getting that Linz-Salzburg train 30 days out. No reason to be stressed.

    You would purchase tickets by searching a route under 'Book Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, For the options via Linz, you would just piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search from Prague to Linz and then another search for connecting trains from Linz to Salzburg.

    On the segment from Linz to Salzburg, you would either take a Railjet train or a Westbahn train. The Railjets will be labeled accordingly when you pull up the results of your search. The ones not labeled on this route are the Westbahns.

    For the most comfortable travel, 1st class would be recommended.
