The “Vindobona” is a famous long-distance Eurocity train between Berlin, Prague and Austria. The train’s name come from the Roman name of Vienna. It was first introduced in 1957 using diesel multiple units running from Friedrichstraße station in East Berlin via Dresden Hauptbahnhof, Prague hlavní nádraží and České Velenice/Gmünd to Wien Franz-Josefs-Bahnhof.
Since mid 2020 there is again a daily direct Railjet trainset between Graz, Vienna, Brno, Prague, Dresden and Berlin operating. The name “Vindobona” is now used for all Railjet trains between Prague and Graz via Vienna operated by České dráhy and Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB).
The dining car situation is quite ok. It’s not superior as with a fully-fledged carriage, but there is one with full service.
