Trains in Austria/Germany

Is it best to book trains in advance
9 years ago, July 7th 2009 No: 1 Msg: #78758  
I've managed to find timetables and stuff for getting trains from Munich to Austria and around Austria although not always clear what exactly it's telling me.

I'm thinking it may be just as well getting the tickets and trains when it suits me rather than being booked on a certain train. I don't have too much time that I want to hang about waiting for trains if they're full.

Anyone any idea if it's easy to just turn up and get on or am I better booking in advance? Reply to this

Hello Graham 😊

If you book in advance on the internet you will get better prices.

Anyone any idea if it's easy to just turn up and get on or am I better booking in advance?


I have always been able to show up and just buy a ticket. Sometimes, in high tourist season you might have to stand because the trains get full, but mostly you will be able to get on.

I booked for Warsaw/Prague/Vienna but in reality there were plenty of seats and trains. Reply to this

Frequency means u can generally get where u want to when u want to...for instance on the 0823 from Prague to Vienna in September 2008 there was plenty of room. Train from Vieena to Freistadt was similar...booked tho as I had a bike. Reply to this

Basically buying train tickets is now like an "auction". There are cheaper tickets available at the beginning and the later you book the less cheap tickets are available and then you have to take the expensive ones. Similar to planes. Reply to this
