DB Bahn TicketsHey Guys,
First time Europe traveller and poster here.
I tried looking for info on this, and since I can't get in contact with Bahn directly I thought I'd ask the next most reputable source, this forum.
I am trying to buy tickets for May 6th, 2013 on the CityNightLIne from Munich (11:30PM) to Venice (8:34AM) direct. I was looking on the DB Bahn website at these tickets LINK and there is a message stating they cannot be booked at this time (little caution sign beside the time). There are tickets available on the 5th for purchase as well as days before the 6th and it appears there are no tickets available for the 6th onward.
I was under the impression that these tickets could be purchased well in advance (90-120days?), is there something I'm missing? When can I expect to be able to purchase these tickets?
Any help would be much appreciated.

3At the risk of being told I'm a know-all its worth remembering that the cheapest tickets are available right on the 90 day limit!
They then get more expensive.......
The advantage of using D-Bahn from Oz is that the click-over to the latest fares happens at lunchtime in Oz, rather than at midnight in Germany!

4"Train is not bookable until further notice."
The schedule/run of this train is not yet confirmed by the Italian side past 5th May.
a) the Italians are indeed that bad organized that they really cannot confirm the asked for train run yet
b) the Italians do some railway political foul play (there are indices for this)
But in either case - no one will answer this right now. You just can recheck from time to time. From past experience they will confirm the train run sooner or later.
