The hubby and I are travelling through Europe in May and I'm trying to nail down our itinerary now. Monday, May 17th we'll be in Venice. That night we'd like to take an overnight train (we'll have eurail flexipasses) to Graz, Austria since it's a long leg. We're going to Graz because we have relatives there. Looking at the Deutsche Bahn website, I do not see any direct routes without stops. Am I looking correctly? Of course a route with no stops would be best for our sleep...
Otherwise, I see this option:
Venezia Mestre Su, 17.01.10 dep 21:18 EN 236 EuroNight
Schwarzach-St. Veit Mo, 18.01.10 arr 03:18 3
Schwarzach-St. Veit Mo, 18.01.10 dep 03:24 3 EN 465 EuroNight
Graz Hbf Mo, 18.01.10 arr 07:00
Only a 6 minute connection time? This makes me extremely nervous, but we don't seem to have many options...does anyone know of this connecting station? I see that we would arrive and depart on the same platform. But still...Also wouldn't this count as 2 days, not 1, on our eurail pass? The other option I see is:
Venezia Mestre Mo, 18.01.10 dep 01:30 EN 234 EuroNight
Bruck/Mur Mo, 18.01.10 arr 06:39
Bruck/Mur Mo, 18.01.10 dep 06:50 REX 1905 RegionalExpress
Graz Hbf Mo, 18.01.10 arr 07:30
This option might be better since we have a longer chunk at once to sleep, but it does leave at 1:30am... And another very close connection window! Thoughts?
