"Reasonable" transfer time between trains
Platforms at Frankfurt train station
I am taking several train trips in August in Germany/Czech Republic:
Frankfurt-Berlin, Berlin-Prague, Prague-Munich.
What is a reasonable transfer time when changing trains? I will be using a discounted ticket, so if I miss my train, I cannot get a refund. The DB BAHN website offers some routings with transfer times as low as 4 minutes.
Is 4 minutes too little? 10 minutes? 30 minutes? What is reasonable in Canada may not be reasonable in Germany!
Can I assume that platforms 7 and 8 are close together, or not always?
Can I assume trains run on time, or should I allow for delays of 10 minutes? or 30 minutes late? or 90 minutes late?
Are you inspired to visit Germany?
