Question re Train from Berlin to Prague, Stopping in Dresden

Jump to last reply

This fall, we will be traveling from Berlin to Prague, with a short overnight one-night stay in Dresden. Using Fodorite advice, I have found the place on the bahn.de website that allows me to add Dresden as a stopover. To give us the maximum flexibility, we are willing to purchase standard (normal) tickets, which allows us to take any train.

But I'm not sure how that works.

The description of "normalpreis" fares in the popup is: "Fully flexible (no specific train). Exchanges and refunds free of charge. Fee charged from 1st day of validity." What does "fee charged from 1st day of validity" mean? Iif we take a different train, do we go to a ticket window and exchange the tickets, or because it says "no specific train," does that mean that we can just get on whatever train we choose for that day (that doesn't seem logical)?

Does this all mean that if I buy a ticket that leaves at 12:47 on Monday, for example, we can actually take any train on Monday? And if I put the stopover time at 40 hours, then can we take any train from Dresden up until that 40 hours?

Thanks for your help - I was so proud of myself when I located the "stopover" option!
