How to Get From Graz (Austria) to Brno (Czechia) by Train
Yet again, it was time to move on. We spent 3 days in Graz and thought that was enough. There is plenty to see in Graz, but the town has a bit of an austere feel.
We had just come from Maribor, which is a beautiful town where almost every street is lined with trees. Graz mostly has streets devoid of any greenery. The place would look a whole lot better with more trees.
Graz Central Train Station
The train station in Graz is large and modern and located around 2 km from the city center. An Uber taxi to/from the station costs around 10 EUR.
This is where we bought our train tickets to Brno. The train tickets were 75.20 EUR each. That’s shockingly expensive compared to the train and bus tickets we’ve bought during our 5 months of traveling around Europe.
Tickets for our train from Zagreb to Split (410 km) cost 15.93 EUR each.
Tickets for our train from Mostar to Sarajevo (125 km) cost 7.05 EUR each.
Tickets for our train from Rijeka to Ljubljana (115 km) cost 9 EUR each.
Tickets for our train from Ljubljana to Maribor (130 km) cost 9.60 EUR each.
Tickets for our train from Maribor to Graz (70 km) cost 8 EUR each.
THose 5 train journeys covering a distance of 850 km cost us a total of 49.58 EUR each.
It’s 326 km from Graz to Brno, yet the tickets cost 75.20 EUR each. Go figure.
I feel like we’ve been ripped off.
Our train was new and modern. At least we got a great train for our money.
The train had luggage racks, which have been a bit of a rarity on our train journeys so far. The train also had a restaurant car, a quiet carriage, and a family carriage. The quiet carriage wasn’t very quiet though because there were long announcement before and after every stop. It got very annoying in the end.
The seating was very comfortable with plenty of legroom.
A food and drinks trolley came around a few times. They served Starbucks coffee but it didn’t taste anything like Starbucks coffee. It was pretty awful.
The train had pretty fast wifi and worked well for the whole journey.
Brno Train Station
The train was a few minutes’ late arriving.
