Celebrate New Year's Eve on board the Majestic Imperator Train deluxe in an unforgettable way. The Majestic Imperator, legendary Austrian Imperial train, on which traveled the Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife Sissi, is again on the move to give the traveler a unique onboard experience. A highly professional staff awaits the guest at the Vienna train station. The photographs of the emperors on the walls, the antique ornaments, the precious fabrics, persian carpets, the silver cutlery, glassware and the music in the background will all relive the atmosphere of the past




In 1991, a century after the original train was built, Gottfried Rieck, an engineer with the Austrian Federal Railways, along with his wife Sibylle, set out to realize their dream of rebuilding one carriage of this legendary train. Gottfried had worked for the railways for over thirty-five years, having begun his career shoveling coal on a steam locomotive. After many months, their dream became reality with the rebirth of the Salon I carriage, adapting the still existing original plans to meet strict modern safety requirements.

Engineers have combined the rigid safety lines for modern trains with the exorbitant magnificence and glory of their ancient originals. The passion of the Rieck family to rebuild historical trains and bring them back on track again inspired further enthusiasts of nostalgic trains: Stefan Gutmann and his family entered into a partnership with the Rieck family and took over the majority of the company shares in 2012
