A new ÖBB night train runs daily from Vienna Central Station to Genoa and even further to La Spezia.
ÖBB sent the first night train from Vienna to Genoa on Sunday evening. The Nightjet now runs daily and departs from the central station in Vienna at 19:18. Scheduled arrival in Genova Piazza Principe is at 09:38; it also continues to La Spezia. Return is at 19:50 from Genoa, with scheduled arrival at 08:52 in Vienna. The Nightjet, which currently connects Munich and Milan, will also be extended to Genoa and La Spezia.
First Nightjet from Vienna to Genoa set on its journey
The premiere train from Vienna Central Station was given a ceremonial send-off on Sunday evening by Transport Minister Leonore Gewessler (Greens), Italian Ambassador Stefano Beltrame and ÖBB CEO Andreas Matthä. “With the new night train, we are connecting cities like Vienna, Munich, Milan and Genoa overnight in a climate-friendly way – making rail travel even more attractive compared to air travel,” Gewessler said. He added that those who choose rail travel are about 50 times more climate-friendly. “The new, state-of-the-art Nightjets will offer even more comfort and privacy in the future,” Gewessler said. The direct cross-border connection shows “that we take climate protection seriously.”

Matthä proclaimed 2023 a “real Italy year.” “With the extension of the Nightjet to Genoa and La Spezia, we are taking the next step toward making the night train network in Europe even larger. With Liguria and the Cinque Terre region, we offer our customers new attractive Nightjet destinations that they can reach comfortably and are climate-friendly overnight.”
