The conditions are available only in Polish. According to those conditions, breaks in the journey are not permitted.

Thank you for your help.

Incidentally, I don't know whether you can read German, but the Deutsche Bahn website seems to suggest this ticket is also available from them at a cost of 39€.

Yes, there is the DB offer. I couldn't find a link from DB's English-language site. So through that link you can order online from DB.

When I was using this train the last time there was this trick:

- it was better to buy ticket to Zgorzelec

- cross the border (still in the train)

- and buy new ticket from Görlitz to Dresden

somehow it was a lot cheaper option.

I don't know if it still is the case and if there were any risks involved. I mean I'm not sure what is your status at the train in those couple of minutes on the border. I guess it is not a problem because ticket inspectors change and you are just fresh new client for a German one. Anyway this kind of solves you a problem with Görlitz stop (though once again, I'm not sure if it is still cheaper that way).

j w: That might be a trick, but you would be traveling without a ticket on the Zgorzelec-Görlitz segment. This segment has a standard tariff price of 6.20 Euro. I don't think it's wise to advise people to ride without a ticket, even if you can get away with it. That trick might not work every time!

Dear Jeffrey

I am travelling Wroclaw to Dresden soon. I want to return to Wroclaw on Monday morning for a flight out. There is a train listed on the Polrail site leaving Dresden at 07.31 but this train is not listed on Dbahn's site. Do they run separate trains?

I would like to be able to get the train on Friday from Wroclaw Nowy Dwor. It looks nearer, quicker and cheaper by Taxi. The 12.26 from Glowny to Dresden appears to stop there. Is this correct?

Will the returning 07.31 from Dresden to Wroclaw also stop at Nowy Dwor?

Many thanks

The trains on this line are a joint DB/Przewozy Regionalne operation.

There were some schedule changes due to engineering work that got the schedules out of synch between the sites, but this has been corrected.

The 0809 from Dresden does stop at Wroclaw Nowy Dwor, arriving at 1142.

The direct to trains from Wroclaw to Dresden also stop at this station.

Nowy Dwór station is indeed closer to the airport but you may have a problem with catching a taxi there (you probably will have to phone one of taxi companies).

Do you know how long it takes in a taxi from Wroclaw Glowny? What's the fare?
