Hello Veronica,

Thanks for your question.

Book and travel as follows:

- Berlin to NurembergICE or Intercity trains.

- Nuremberg to Munich – ICE train.

- Munich to Salzburg – Other train or Railjet train.

- Salzburg to Berlin via Munich – Other train or ICE train.

I would suggest you to purchase German rail pass. This pass would cover all your travel sectors and give you unlimited travel on all regional and national trains.

Keep in mind that seat reservations would be mandatory for all High-Speed, Night, Scenic and Border Crossing trains. But, you will avail pass holder/discounted fares for these journeys with the pass.

To purchase pass click “Here”.

Yes as per current schedule trains are running on 31st December and 1st January.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on “Seat Reservations” & feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

Hope this helps!!!
