That's what I thought. Germany I do a lot via CDG/AMS. Some countries confuse me! Euro/EC/Schengen totally confuses me!

Anyway, I didn't think so, because, I remember taking the train from Berlin to Prague 2 times. The first time, years ago, the immigration officers boarded the train in both countries in both directions - stamped passports - the whole shebang. More recently, but still a few years ago, you could see that the guard houses at the border crossing were abandoned, and the train zipped past.
