Rail Prague to Vienna with some "extras" information please

My wife and I will be in Prague in late September/October and we were wondering about taking the train to Vienna.

We are both in our Mid 50's, will have 2 pieces of luggage, and a mobility scooter as my wife can't walk very far.

Will we have difficulty using the train?

And how much would we expect to pay for the tickets?

Thank You in Advance

Hi,

There are Supercity trains Pendolino between Prague and Vienna. The journey takes 4 hours.

there are some photos of the train:http://www.pendolino.cz/mist/

you can buy train tickets through

I think your wife should not have any problems with taking this train, this is the most comfortable and fastest train running in the Czech Republic as well as to Vienna.

Hope this helps.

Enjoy your stay!

It is €19 on the 'Pendolino' described above - this fare is only available on-line (as per above link), and when purchasing you need to specify 'disabled person with wheelchair'

Someone should be available to help you at the station. Just be aware that it might be difficult actually getting to the platform as you need to go down a flight of stairs and then up another set of stairs and as far as I know there is not a lift, so get there in plenty of time and seek out a member of the station staff to get you across the tracks safely.
