Train fares and tariffs / Sightseeing in Germany
« on: February 17, 2013, 10:42:04 am »
Hi tUt,
I last contacted you in 2010 re trains in Central Europe where you gave me excellent advice and help. 
This time we will be on a cruise out of Amsterdam calling in at ports in the Baltic Sea.  The first port is Warnemunde, Germany and we are a group of 4 who would like to take a train to Schwerin (to see the castle) and stop off at Rostock on our return journey before returning to Warnemunde where the ship will be leaving port at around 11.30pm. 
I have looked at the site and find it a little confusing!  I would appreciate your help with a few items.

How do I book a Mecklenberg-Vorpommurn ticket?  This seems to be the best idea though I realiise it can't be used on IC trains.
Does this pass cover all 4 of us for our outward and return journey?

I believe we have to change trains at Rostock  - can we get on and off any time and return at any time?  Why I ask is that it the website asks for a departure and return time.

Can it be booked online and can I print the ticket?

Is there any advantage in booking early?  (we are not travelling until May 2013)

What price should we pay?

If, for some reason, we are delayed and I have to change the day - is that possible?

Thanking you in advance,
Kind regards,

Hi tUt,

Many thanks for your previous help - I thought it best to start a new topic as I have now finalised by various destinations and have just a couple more questions :)
After visiting Dubrovnik we decided to rent a car and travel around Croatia/Slovenia ending up in Zagreb.  We will get the #205 train from Zagreb to Budapest leaving at 10.00am (you advised to buy a return to get 60% discount, is that right?)
From Budapest we will get the EC170 leaving at 9.28am to Prague.  If I purchase our tickets in advance from the EShop website, do we get them for 19 euro?  Or do you have to purchase them at the station to get the discounted tickets as it states that only the first 6 passengers can get the discounted fare?
From Prague we will get a bus to visit Cesky Krumlov for 1 night and then we want to travel to Vienna and thought it would be easier to get a train from CK but on the Eshop website they say that Cesky Krumlov is not recognised and it is not possible!  Do we have to return to Prague to get the train to Vienna? 
I would appreciate your help.
Thanks, Joode

Hi TuT,

Thanks for previous info but am still trying to refine travel plans. I just can't seem to get timetables from Croatian rail website and finding it rather frustrating!  So, once again I ask your help!  I think my main problem is I don't know the actual names of the stations or via what towns.

I would like to know what are the times trains run from Zagreb to Split and how long they take.  I know they have a fast tilt train - is it much more expensive than other types such as fast train and express trains.

The other question is getting a train from Zagreb to Budapest that doesn't take a very long time.  The ones I have found seem to go via Vienna and some via Villach for a up to a total of some 16 hours!  I sure there is one that takes around 6 hours but can't seem to find the times it leaves Zagreb or how much it costs for a 1 way trip.


Train fares and tariffs / Vienna to Zagreb & Ljubljana to Vienna
« on: December 21, 2009, 09:27:13 am »
Hi, I'm still trying to sort out my actual route and note that I should be able to book the Vienna-Zagreb train (day) trip online at the OEBB site but how far in advance can I do that?  Also what is the best fare to ask for?  We intend joining a small tour in Zagreb going to Dubrovnik, spend some time there, and then eventually make our way (by bus and/or ferry?) along the coast and onto Ljubljana in Slovenia which brings me to the next question.  Can a train fare be booked online for the Ljubljana to Vienna leg or is it better to buy it at the station?  What sort of fare should I ask for and approx. how much would it be?  Thanks.

Hi, I think your site is great and hope you can help me out. ::)

I intend flying into Vienna and would like to visit these cities, staying a couple of days in each and allowing a day in between each one for the train travel.  Could you please advise the best route from Vienna and returning to Vienna as I am not fussed which direction I go but would prefer not to backtrack.  Prices would also be a help but I can post on the other board referring to prices if you prefer - let me know.  Many thanks,  :)
