Bahn.de rail travel in Germany

Jump to last reply

We'll be in Berlin for a week at the end of August, and fancy taking a day out to visit Leipzig, check out Nikolaikirche and sample some recently-revived Gose beer. I've been checking train timetables on Bahn.de, but confess to being confused by some of the fare options. "Standard" ticket prices are expensive - EU47 p/p each way - EU188 euros return for the 2 of us.

But Bahn.de also lists what they call "saver" fares, different for different departure times, but all a lot cheaper than the "standard" fare. Searching their website, I think I've established that these saver fares are fixed to specific departure times (which I assume means that the "standard" fare means I can rock up to any departure time and use it). So, for example, I might get the 8:52am departure from Berlin to Leipzig for EU35 p/p, the 9:52am for EU27 p/p, and so on.

What I can't find on the website, however, is whether these "saver" prices are still available if I rock up to Berlin Hbf on the day, or do they apply only if pre-booked. If the latter, is there a time limit? That is, should I pre-book online now, or can I book at Berlin Hbf a day or two before?
