If you compare it with some Railway stations in Western Europe, you will wonder where you are. Dirty, no public toilet, the information is very bad. It is a real shame.

It's a classic European train depot. Cavernous with some interesting side halls. If you need a cab outside, negotiate well and save money

Built in an eclectic style at the end of the 19th century. Mix of old grandeur and practical solutions for transport. With a bit of imagination, one can see the empress Elizabeth, Sissi, stepping out from the train and walking towards you through the steam.

Hello I will be travelling for a couple of days to Vienna from Budapest. Is it better to buy the tickets at the station before departure? Or is it better to buy your tickets online before , Or at the station a day before departure. Which is the cheapest and best option?

Will I have to stand up on the train to Fussen? Do you have seats reserved for the tour group on the train?

Kitty, I believ you posted this question in the wrong place. I think that is something you should ask directly of your tour company. However, if they answer yes, I would find a new company. It is a beautiful train ride.
