you can check timetable on DBahn website - looks like 15 hour journey

I think you would need to buy the ticket in Budapest, there is no on line availability as yet....as to how much, perhaps you could ask on Budapest forum

It'll cost you about €80, and you buy in Budapest as it is not available on-line, but if you are lucky there might be some spar-night tickets left - a place in a 6-berth cabin costs from €39 to Krakow, which you use until Katowice, then change in Katowice and buy a ticket to Poznan - you should have time to do that if you get the overnight 'Metropol'. It does mean that you will be in Katowice in the early hours which isn't very nice, but they have knocked down the old station and are building a brand spanking new one, but I don't know where they are up to with that.

The advantage of buying a full price ticket is that you can stop off where you like on the route and just use the same ticket to continue your journey the next day or the following week or whatever - they are usually valid for a month, sometimes more.

It is all in here mav-start.hu/utazas/… which you might want to run through Google translate if you feel that your Hungarian isn't up to it.

For times see www.idos.cz - the DB website is OK, but isn't as user-friendly and sometimes misses off trains.
