-Train journey: No delay on the outward journey -Departure: Dresden / Change: Prague / Destination: Vienna -Other: Train not overcrowded, but well attended. Unfortunately, 1st class is not always open. Seat reservation important. The journey time is > 7h, which is however very relaxing compared to the car. All in all, a good option for a long weekend trip.
