Vienna to Zurich; place to stop in between

I’m looking to get the train from Vienna to Zürich in July, via Leoben. It’s about an 11 hour train journey, so I would love to stop somewhere for the night along the way. It doesn’t necessarily need to be exactly half way, just somewhere picturesque that I’ll be able to find reasonably cheap accomodation. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated

You might take a look at Kitzbuhel or Zell am See .

The fast trains go via Salzburg and Innsbruck and not Leoben.

Do yourself a favour and get the fast train which does the journey in under 8 hours and so can be easily done in a day. Not only do you avoid getting to and checking in and out of a hotel for one night, you also have the possibility to get the cheapest train fare.

ONLY buy from www.oebb.at/en - that is the operator's site and it sells the cheapest tickets - from €29, and you can even buy to your final destination in Switzerland, not just to Zürich, unless you have urgent business there.

Yes, Kitzbühel and Zell am See would come to my mind either, maybe Innsbruck if you would be interested in staying in a larger place.
