Train transfer times in Germany and other DB Bahn questions

Jump to last reply

In early July we plan to travle on a Wednesday from Prague to Rothenburg ob der Tauber. And on that Friday we will head for Paris.
My DH is concerned about making the train connections...With a 15 and 12 yr old in tow and with need to get lunch to go. We will need to transfer at least twice, i believe, on both days.
Looking on the reservation web page i see that it gives the option of making the quickest connections. When clicking that option i see that some of the transfer times are 4 minutes. I also note for other transfers we will walk for 10 minutes (from bus drop off to IC Train station).

My questions are:
-do the various levels of Db Bahn trains, and the bus from Prague, tend to be on time?
-are the walking times for a fast-walking commuter? Or for a 12 yr old with a rolling duffle?
- if we buy tickets now for a quick connection to an IC or RB, etc, and we miss a connection, can we just take the next one? Or is it best to fit in more buffer time?
- On that Friday on the way to Paris we could take The RFB around 9 am, then walk 6 min, then the RE, trasfer 7 min, then the IC,with a 1 hour layover in Stuttgart awaiting the TGV departure. Is this too close for the TGV connection? Should we reserve for the next Tgv about 4 hrs later?, (will reserve 90 days ahead). The later train would get us into Paris around 8:30 pm.
Any other advice or cautions?
Any favorite quick (or leisurely) bites at or near Stuttgart Train Station?
