Train from prague to vienna

Hi,

I am waiting for prague to vienna trains to become available for my dates (i believe they open 2 months in advance only)

my question is that how exactly does one purchase ticket ?

my understanding is that one purchases ticket online at https://www.cd.cz/ and then just boards the train without requiring any validation / stamping at station, is that correct ?

please let me know as i just want to avoid any surprises ..

Regards

https://www.cd.cz/eshop/

buy via eshop, print the ticket on A4 paper....no validation at the station, just find a seat on the train and wait for the conductor.

A4 paper is normal print, i.e. no shrinking / expanding of image. More info here: www.ehow.com/about_6631036_a4-paper_.html

Hi all!

I'm searching eshop site for one way ticket from Praha to Wien on May 1st and the only option I'm getting - 6:16pm train that arriving to Vienna near midnight.

No other (earlier) trains would be displayed. Is it really the only option or my search is incorrect?

Please help! I'd like to find more reasonable schedule (with possibility of arriving into Vienna around 4-5 pm).

Thanks in advance!

I see 9:39a.m. arrive 2:24pm and 1:39a.m. arrive 6:24pm

.......

offhand, specificy/change your departure time...it defaults to real/actual time that you get onto the web page....

so, it would seem you were on the web page after 2pm and before 6pm EST...hence, the reason it did not pick up the earlier times and only the one after 6pm

You mean 1:39 pm - getting confused with those 12-hour clocks I see!

mimi99 - Get used to seeing times expressed in 24-hour format, i.e. depart 13:39, arrive 18:24. Also dates are all the 'right way round' :)

I tried it now. It seems that the tickets for 1. class are sold. For second class it goes without problem. 1 May is bad day to international traveling, most of Europe states have public holiday.
