Munich to Berlin overnight. Is 11 minutes enough time to change trains at the station in Mannheim?

Hello, I will be traveling from munich to berlin next month and in order to save money I need to take an overnight train. The train I am looking at has a 11 minute connection in Mannheim. Is that sufficient enough time?Also, as I was searching your website I noticed that there's an overnight train from munich to berlin for $31 with 1 change at Hannover and another comparable train with 1 change at Frankfurt but that one is $116. Is there a reason for the huge change in prices? Thanks!

  • Hi Rebecca,

    A connection time of 11 minutes is sufficient time to change trains at the station in Mannheim. A common minimum connection time is 7 to 10 minutes at the typical station in Europe, including the Mannheim station. With that said, since it is an overnight train that you'd be connecting to, I would still recommend allowing yourself more time by booking an earlier train from Munich to Mannheim. To do this, you would just have to a separate search for each segment of the connection. Therefore, you would do one search for trains from Munich to Mannheim and then another search to access the night train from Mannheim to Berlin.

    Trains from Munich to Mannheim are high-speed ICE (InterCity Express) trains.

    The night train from Mannheim to Berlin is the Sirius City Night Line train.
