It is not just Berlin on offer, more services to Bratislava are also on offer. From 06.08.2012 services to Bratislava will operate 13 times a day, an increase of two routes per day.

A new route is also Salzburg to Prague, which runs twice daily and costs 29 Euro for adults, and kids aged 6-14 pay 2 Euros, and under 6 kids travel free.

Combi tickets can also be bought. For example form Salzburg to Linz with WESTbahn then Linz to Prague with WESTbus and return.
