Sparpreis and 3 minutes to get the connection?

Good evening,

I would like to book a Sparpreis Europa ticket from Dresden to Graz on January, 21, leaving from Dresden at 07:08. I saw that in Vienna and particularly in Breclav there is a quite little time to get the connection (3minutes in Breclav). Additionally. I have noticed that for Breclav the platforms where trains arrive and leave from are never given. Having only 3 minutes to get the connection, if the train from Prague is slightly delayed it is likely that I will miss the one in Breclav. Do the trains usually wait if there are delays? Are the platforms communicated on board to the passengers (English or German)? If I miss one of the connections because of delays can I use the following train even if my ticket is a Sparpreis one and could in principle not be used on trains different than the one for which the ticket was booked?
Thank you in advance
Luca

Hello Hornemanni (Luca),
well, I can't promise the trains will be waiting for a delayed one. This depends on the general situation in the railway-system in that area. If the delay is too big, the following train might not wait and you'd have to take the next one.
I suppose the platforms are announced on the trains by the staff, this is the rule. In ECs, the staff is not always DB-personnel. Maybe the platforms for the EC 277 from Praha to Breclav are in our system in a few days, please have a look from time to time. If you miss one of the trains in your connection and it's our fault, you may take another train to your destination. /da
