Track work on trains from Munich to Prague??

Track work on trains from Munich to Prague??

I’m planning on buying a ticket from Prague to munich for July 29th (Sunday). While those ALEX trains aren’t showing up on the cd.cz website for purchase yet, I’m seeing that a lot of the current trains have restrictions along the route. I am wondering if anyone knows how I can verify that there won’t be restrictions along the route for the day I book (of course, if it says it once the tix show up, I will not purchase). Just looking for official website that says when the track work is taking place. I might just take the Flix bus, so if anyone has experience with that, that would be helpful too. Thanks!

Per D Bahn the direct train Prague to Munich does not run from 28. Jul until 10. Sep 2018

Best to take the DB bus and buy tickets from their website.

My choice would be the DB bus, I expect more reliable and run on time, just like the Swiss trains:)

Agree with the DB bus. Better experience than FLIXbus, more reliable.

I just made my reservation yesterday for the DB bus.. My one concern now is that only my name is on the ticket, even though they say on ticket that they check passports for the name. I did reserve five seats for my family, wondering if it’s going to be a problem and that only my name appears on the ticket. Any thoughts?

No problem as long as you all travel together....that's the normal mode of operation.

Mind you, this bus leaves from the street level of the train station...not the main bus station Florenc.

At the train station, take the escalators up at Burger King or Sephora and walk out the main door.

FYI There is a full supermarket at the train station for water, snacks etc.
