Hi! I will be taking the sleeper train from Berlin to Vienna and arriving early Sunday morning. I don't want to buy my ticket ahead of time because I have been told there are often delays with the overnight trains. Is it ok to purchase a ticket the day of? I plan on taking Slovak Lines since it leaves from the train station which will be easier for me.

Hi Gurv,

it is possible, but you are exposing yourself to a risk it will be sold out.

Hi Gurv,

considerable risk is only on days of public holidays and so on, when a lot of people tend to travel, and even then it should be fine.

Hi Sola,

the first train in the morning arrives at 5:59 to Petrzalka (20min taxi to the airport). I would recommend coming 1 day sooner and stay for a night in some ho(s)tel.

Hi,

Are there any border issues from Vienna to Bratislava taking the bus? I'm wondering if there are delays due to the migration.
