During my visit to Prague I am planning a day trip to Dresden, so can someone please help me with the following?
From where do trains start their journey to Dresden -station, platform-and where do I have to go to buy tickets? Is a day before the trip sufficient time to find tickets? If I also buy the return ticket, can someone explain the way I should validate them? I mean are there machines at the train platforms or do I have to find an inspector for the validation?? and what about the validation rules in Germany for the return trip...is it the same method or something else?? Also do I need to be at the train station like 1/2 hour before the trip, in order to find the right platform, seats etr...
Any advice ot useful info would be really appreciated, as I am not really familiar with train travel.
Thanks in advance for your time,
