/ Berlin to Poznan where to buy rail or train tickets and how much do they cost?
Hi - I live in Gorzow - which is directly between Berlin and Poznan, so I have travelled this route many times - I would suggest you go by train, but you might have to make 2 changes, unless you get the direct-express train (Warsaw express), which isn't so regular, so it depends what time you are traveling...
This website should help you - polrail.com/sections/travel/timetable.html and its in english!
The buses don't go from Berlin to Poznan (that i know of) but you could get a train to the polish border and then get a bus to Poznan, but to me, it seems like a lot of messing around!
I do not know how much the train costs directly but i know how much it costs for me when i travel:
Berlin - Kostrzyn (polish border town) - 12euro
Kostrzyn - Gorzow - 9zł
Gorzow - Poznań - 30zł
oh, and you have to buy the tickets from the ticket office - if you get the direct train from Berlin to Poznan you can buy the tickets in Berlin Lichtenburg station where the train departs from - they speak English there.
But, if you don't get the direct train you may have to buy tickets in the Polish station too - and there they usually only speak Polish (and maybe some German or Russian!)
so, you see, its not so cheap... or sometimes even easy... Any more questions, post again, i'd be happy to help :)
