Train pass. Worth it?

Jump to last reply

Hello all!

My travel agent tells me that we would better off to buy a train pass for our next trip.
We want to take the train from Munich-Salzburg, Salzburg-Vienna, Vienna-Praha, Praha-Dresden, and Dresden-Berlin.

The pass is almost 470 $, and she tells me that we might have to shell out additional fees once we are there for seat booking.

I took a look at prices online with DB Bahn, and the prices do look a lot steeper than for our last trip in Italy.

Are tickets cheaper once we are there if we buy them as we go along? Or is the pass really a good deal?

Merci! :)
