Train to Prague

Is it necessary to buy tickets in advance to go from Bamberg to Prague? We will be in Bamberg Aug 28-30 so would it be ok to just buy them on the 28 or 29th?

Thanks!

DB timetable

http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en

From: Bamberg

To: Prague

and select as means of transport "without IC/EC/ICE".

1. Buy in Bamberg on your travel day a Bavaria-Bohemia Ticket (Bayern-Böhmen Ticket). EUR 32,00 for 2-5 persons traveling together. This ticket covers the route till Plzen/Pilsen.

2. Buy on the train from the Czech conductor (he comes in Furth im Wald on board) normal ticket from Plzen/Pilsen to Prague.

Single ticket CZK 145 (~ EUR 6,00) per person.

There is a small service fee for buying the tickets on board. But there is also a group discount from 2 persons on.

Best is to get some Czech Koruny (CZK) already in Bamberg to pay for the ticket.

When I go to that site, it says it is 167 euros for the 2 travelers, both age 27. How did you see only 32 euros? Am I doing something wrong?

Also, what is IC/EC/ICE?

Thanks so much!

Ah, I was not selecting the 'without IC/EC/ICE'. But when I did, it gave me no price...

Thanks again...sorry, I am new to the train system.

Bavaria-Bohemia Ticket won't be shown as a price option by the DB timetable. And the information about this ticket is only available in German
