Travelling from Ljubljana to Budapest

Hi everyone, we are planning to travel from Ljubljana to Budapest by train in early December. I searched online but am getting confused. I understand that there is only one direct train between the two cities but i am not able to buy the tickets online, only at the stations, am i correct? Has anyone been on this journey recently? Your advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Unfortunately you can not buy train tickets in advance. But, the trains are never full - just arrive at the train station at least 20 minutes before the departure.

My understanding is that Deutche Bahn covers all of Europe, with regards to timetabels.

I find the info at:

to be very helpful, recommend you check there.

We take the Citadella Train from Ljubljana to Budapest next week (late October) and it departs at 9:08am and arrives Budapest Deli Station at 5:29pm. We bought our 2nd class tickets a week ahead in Ljubljana for 19 Euro each.
