It can be particularly worthwhile comparing prices on the national ticket agents for this journey - when the cheapest tickets have sold out on the DB (German railways website), they can still be available on the OBB (Austrian railways website) and vice versa.
Reservations are highly recommended for this journey, If you book a First Class ticket on DB your seat(s) will be assigned, but OBB will charge a reservation fee for First class tickets because they are typically optional when travelling by this train.
You will therefore have to pay to add a reservation when booking second class tickets, no matter which ticket agent you use.
But this is a journey when travelling 1st class can pay off, you'll have greater opportunities to switch sides across the coach on the train - to ensure that you're always seeing the best of the views!
