The connecting time between trains at Nurnberg should be around 30 - 40 mins, so making the transfer into the trains on to Berlin shouldn't be a problem.

If you do happen to miss the connection due to the late arrival of a train from Wien, then tickets/reservations can be transferred free of charge to a later departure on to Berlin - and there is at least 1 x ICE train per hour between Nurnberg and Berlin.

The alternative journey options:

You can now take direct trains from Wien/Vienna to Berlin - we're still including THIS journey option, with a change of train in Nurnberg, because it is usually cheaper than taking the direct ICE train.

And if you need to arrive in the German capital before 15:30, you can travel on these indirect trains

But, not only has the daytime direct connection by train from Vienna/Wien to Berlin been restored, the two cities have also now been reconnected by an overnight train.
