Just wondering if any knows roughly how much it costs to travel from vienna to berlin by train - day train not the sleeper train. I have tried the OBB website but keep getting strange error messages in German. If anyone knows how much it is likely to cost me it would be a great help.
try to use the following web site www.bahn.de
That's the one for the German train company and it normally works quite well. They should be able to tell you. Good luck Katharina
it completely depends on what trains you catch, how old you are and what time but generally they cost between Euro 95 for a EC - Euro City train which seems reasonable and up to Euro 155 for Inter City Expresses, ECs and regional trains combined. You normally have to change trains once or twice and it takes around 10 hours. I would suggest catching an EC simply because they go straight through without changing trains and are the fastest. www.db.de is the website of the German railway company in case you need more info, don't know if it comes in English though.
Have you looked into flying there instead? Try airberlin.com - it only takes an hour and flights start at Euro 61!
Hope this helps,
