Train in Romania

A journey by train is an authentic experience to get to know a country better. In Romania, the train ride guarantees contact with the country's population, along with a portion of adventure.
In large parts of the country (depending on the selected route) the infrastructure has not yet been modernised, so longer travel times and outdated wagons are to be expected.
From Germany you can reach the Romanian capital Bucharest with one change in Vienna or Budapest.
From Budapest there are direct trains to Brasov, Sibiu, Timisoara and Cluj. Budapest can be reached by direct trains from most European big cities. Due to the length of the route, there is usually a night trip needed.
Bicycles which cannot be dismantled may only be transported in trains with spaces specially provided for the transport of bicycles. A single bicycle per person is permitted.
Interregio trains (IR) which allow passenger transport by bicycle can be found at the ticket offices of CFR Călători or in the online timetable. Current information can be found on cfrcalatori.ro.
