Brandenburg Gate

berlin prague trip

Quadriga. Hey, There's a Word to Know When Learning About this Historic Gate

The Brandenburg Gate was built as a symbol of peace, perverted into a symbol of power by the Nazis, and became a symbol of division during the Cold War. Now, however, it is a symbol of reunification. Completed in 1791, it was topped by the quadriga, a chariot drawn by four horses driven by the goddess of peace. Napoleon seized the quadriga as a spoil of war, but after his defeat, it was returned to the city and met by cheering crowds along the way, transforming the goddess of peace into a goddess of victory, holding a  Germanic cross.

Make your way to the top of the dome enjoying amazing views and looking down at debating members of the German Parliament below.

Officially, the Reichstag is actually the Bundestag, which means the federal parliament. The Reichstag was reduced to a ruined shell by arson in 1933 and by World War II fighting, but it was rebuilt with a striking egg-shaped glass dome. Visitors are given a free audio guide that discusses the building’s history and architecture, while also orientating you to the sites of Berlin. It is an excellent introduction to the city. Note that it is usually necessary to book well in advance!


Berlin to Prague

berlin prague trip

Visit Germany's Oldest and Best Known Zoo.

Founded in 1844, the Zoologischer Garten Berlin was the first zoo in Germany and features some wonderful animal-inspired architecture as well. The original animals were donated by King Frederick William IV of Prussia, and it now has a collection of around 20,500 animals representing 1,500 different species. The zoo’s aquarium opened in 1913 and now contains one of the largest collections of aquatic life in Europe. 

berlin prague trip

Shop in the iconic department store of capitalist West Berlin

Opened in 1907, the Kaufhaus des Westens, or KaDeWe, quickly became a temple of luxury in a rapidly modernising city. It took off again following the German post-war economic miracle and gained new impetus again following German reunification. During Communism, due to it's proximity to East Germany, it became a symbol of the material wealth of the West in comparison to that of countries stuck behind the Iron Curtain.

berlin prague trip

Memorial Church

Remind yourself of war's destructiveness by visiting the ruins of this church destroyed during WWII.

After its destruction in WWII, the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church was partially rebuilt in modernist style, and partially left in ruins as a powerful reminder of the war. Built-in the 1890s, Kaiser Wilhelm II hoped to inspire the secular proletariat to return to traditional religious values. The neo-Gothic design became ever more colorful as Wilhelm insisted on more bling. The small exhibition inside shows the wartime destruction and a “before and after” model of the city center.

Story of Berlin Museum

Take an interactive crash course in Berlin history. (Re-opening Autumn 2021)

This museum uses reconstructed street scapes, homes, and other interactive exibits to give you good feeling for the atmosphere of Berlin during it's long and often times turbulent history, including during the Nazi and Communist era. You can also tour an underground nuclear shelter.


Charles Bridge

Cross the river dividing Prague's most historic neighborhoods, and experience one of Europe's most iconic landmarks.

Bridge construction began in 1357 under King Charles IV (hence the name), and it was the only bridge across the Vltava River until 1841. 30 baroque statues of saints line the bridge, and it is filled with street artists and entertainers. Not to be missed.

berlin prague trip

Maltese Square & Lennon Wall

See a historic wall that has been covered in John Lennon-inspired graffiti since Communist days.

The wall has been covered in graffiti since the 1960s, and during Communism anti-regime sentiment was common. John Lennon's assassination inspired grafitti reflecting his song, Imagine, which earned the wall its current moniker. It is now a favorite gathering place for tourists, and musicians sometimes congregate there as well. Just around the corner is the Maltese Square, which is one of Prague's more quaint and relaxed public spaces, despite being just off the main tourist route.

berlin prague trip

Prague Castle

Prague Castle is one of the main attractions in Prague and is also the largest castle complex in the world.

The Prague Castle is the largest castle complex in the world with structures dating back to the 9th century. The St Vitus Cathedral and Basilica of St George can be found within the castle walls. The Prague Castle also includes several gardens, palaces, and a monastery. This castle was the seat of power for the Kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman Emperors, and presidents of former Czechoslovakia. Prague Castle is a UNESCO world heritage site and is one of the most visited places in the country. 


Church of Our Lady before Týn

Count the spires on the Church of Our Lady Týn before discovering the hidden courtyard behind it.

The 14th-century, Gothic church is a stunning structure with asymmetrical towers (note that the one on the right is slightly larger than the one on the left). It is the dominant feature of Old Town square and serves as an extensive gallery of Gothic, Renaissance and Early Baroque works. The church is the final resting place for the great astronomer Tycho Brahe.

berlin prague trip


Discover a large historical complex of buildings and courtyards "hidden in plain sight" within the Old Town.

Founded as an abbey in the 11th century and later transformed into a Jesuit university, it is the second largest complex of buildings in Prague after the castle and contains four separate churches. Guided tours begin at 10am, and include an awe-inspiring Baroque library hall and the Astronomical Tower, from which you have a beautiful view of the Old Town.

berlin prague trip

Old Town Square

Make sure to visit one of Europe's most important, historic, and stunning city squares.

The square is filled with rich history and surrounded by many beautiful old buildings, such as the gothic church of Our Lady before Týn and the baroque church of St. Nicholas. At the center of the square is a large statue of Jan Hus, a church reformer burnt at the stake in 1415, and a lovely and recently-restored column topped by the Virgin Mary. Today the square is filled with street performers, food stalls, and horse-drawn carriages. 

berlin prague trip

Old Town Hall and Astronomical Clock

See Prague's most photographed moment when the late medieval timepiece constructed on the side of the Old Town Hall Tower comes to life at the top of the hour.

Apostles proceed from the tower’s 1410 astronomical clock hourly, flanked by figures representing vanity, greed, death, and pleasure. You can also take an elevator to the top of the Old Town Hall tower for a great view of the Old Town Square and rooftops. Tours of the town hall and its gothic cellars are also offered. 


Chapel of the Holy Rood

Tour a closely-guarded and jewel-encrusted chapel decorated with amazing medieval art.

The most important and impressive part of the castle, the Chapel of the Holy Rood, is open only to special guided tours due to the fact that its walls are literally covered in precious jewels.

Explore cities in more detail

half timbered houses in nuremberg germany

One of the most authentic, storied German destinations, Nuremberg's picturesque old town, glorious castle, and buzzing Christmas Market makes this city a time-true classic. The ideal gateway to old Bavaria, Nuremberg offers a primer in German history before you embark on the lovely journey through old Bavaria, known as the Romantic Road. Considered the capital of the Holy Roman Empire in the middle ages, Nuremberg would have felt like the center of the world as a procession of kings and emperors passed through its magnificent gates. When the German Renaissance came, Nuremberg was at its heart. Albrecht Dürer, the great German master artist, was born here, and Martin Luther called Nuremberg Germany's 'eyes and ears'. Skip forward a few centuries, and the city took a dark turn, as Nuremberg became a gathering point for the German National Socialists. Slightly outside of town, you can still find the Nazi Party Rallying Grounds, a sobering reminder of the not so distant past. If it all gets too heavy, you can end the day with a glass of rotbier (red beer) and mull it over. Nuremberg is a must-see for anyone who wants to delve into Germany's past. 

Skyscrapers and an old church at sunset in Frankfurt

Dubbed ‘Mainhatten’ for its glass highrises, financial prowess, and proximity to the Main River, Frankfurt offers a fascinating glimpse into the ‘engine room’ of Europe’s economy with an unexpected twist. Among the glass and steel buildings, the old-worldly Römerberg square will give you a double-take. The square’s 15th-century half-timbered houses, old statues, and church spires contrast dramatically against the modern 21st-century skyscrapers beyond. If you visit at Christmas, the Römerberg is truly special, aglow with the light of the tallest Christmas tree in Germany. The square fills with stalls selling handicrafts, and the air is scented with hot apple wine, honey, and cinnamon.  Delve deeper into Frankfurt and you’ll find a substantial museum district, the Museumsufer (Museum Embankment). This area features a cluster of twelve museums on either side of Main River. This includes the Städel, home to Tischbein’s famous painting of renowned writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, one of Frankfurt’s most prestigious sons. The more time you spend in Frankfurt, the more you’ll discover a highly cultured city lurking beneath its glass facades. If you have the time, Frankfurt is certainly worth a second look.      

concert hall in hamburg germany

Compared to other German cities, Hamburg has a moody, nautical charisma all of its own. Despite being battered throughout history by floods, fires, and bombs, Hamburg has always held its head up high. Resilience is in the air in Hamburg, along with the briny smell of the North Sea. In recent years Hamburg has garnered a reputation for commerce and nightlife. Frequent travelers whisper that Hamburg is Germany’s ‘undiscovered’ city, the place to go for a little business and a lot of fun.  Known as Germany’s ‘gateway to the world’, ships dock in Hamburg as they haul cargo up and down the Elbe River. The city thrives as Germany’s primary seaport and has been a center of trade since the middle ages. Its affluence shows in the 19th-century brick warehouses, flourishing restaurant scene, and recently constructed Elbphilharmonie concert hall, which floats majestically in the harbor, part ship and part island. Hamburg is a city for those who like to live large - in a cultured, German kind of way. Attend a performance at the orchestra, cruise on a boat around the Außenalster Lake, or have a night on the Reeperbahn, the Vegas-like strip where the Beatles once performed. Whatever you do in the city, Hamburg will make you look twice and see Germany from a totally different point of view.       

The Television Tower in Berlin at Sunrise

Since the fall of its notorious wall, Berlin’s unification has seen it go from strength to strength. No wonder the city feels like it hasn’t stopped partying since the 1990s. There is so much to celebrate here. Fueled by the robust economy, a thriving tech scene, and straight-up German bonhomie, when you step into Berlin you’ll soon be caught up in its spirit.  For all this gusto, Berlin hasn’t forgotten its troubled past. A visit to Berlin is to bear witness to history. Portions of the wall remain intact, and the city’s Jewish Museum offers a detailed, emotional examination of the Holocaust. Inside the reconstructed Reichstag, every attempt has been made to preserve the parliament’s beleaguered history. The buildings' glass dome addition feels less like a triumphal crown and more like a freshly healed battle scar.  Days in Berlin are easily spent wandering from a cafe to the cultural institutions on Museum Island, or over to the Charlottenburg Palace. By night, crowds wander through the booming bars and nightclubs or gaze upon the floodlit Brandenburg Gate and Victory Column monuments. An international city that can offer something to everyone, Berlin is an unmissable stop on your German journey.  

Church of Our Lady before Týn old town prague czech republic

The city of Prague is indisputably the gem of Central Europe. Full of history, culture, and classic Czech pubs around every corner, Prague is teeming with nooks and crannies just waiting to be discovered. The narrow cobblestone streets and warm red rooftops give the city a homey feel, while the well-preserved medieval architecture transports you back in time. Walking across the Charles Bridge with the view of the Prague Castle will make you feel like you’re living in a fairytale, and you might as well be.    As an up-and-coming destination, Prague is a perfect mix of classic and modern. New trendy cafes and bistros are always popping up, and you can always find a group of lively locals chowing down on goulash and quaffing pivo (the best beer in Europe!) at traditional Czech restaurants across the city. The clash of modernity and tradition, preservation and innovation, gives this city a mysterious air that you won’t soon forget.

Baroque Zwinger Palace in Dresden Germany

Nearly every wall and rooftop in Dresden seems to be finished with a flourish. Defined by its ornamental baroque architecture, a power statement of Saxon royalty, Dresden is made all the more miraculous considering the city was leveled by firebombing in WWII. After the war, the city was reconstructed, brick by painstaking brick. Even under East German-Soviet rule, which usually eschewed frivolous design, buildings like the Semper Opera House were pieced back to their former glory. Restoration of the majestic Zwinger Palace and bell domed Church of Our Lady slowly followed, with the Frauenkirche only fully repaired in 2005. Arguably there is no other city in Europe that cherishes its hard-won architecture as much as Dresden. Although it is a compact city, so many of its buildings will stop you in your tracks that architecture fans will easily lose a whole day in the Old Town area. Especially during the winter months, Dresden sparkles with a joyous, uplifting ambiance. The city is recognized as having the best-ever Christmas market in all of Europe. Between the twinkling lights, the scent of hot wine and gingerbread, and the towering Christmas tree, it’s worth going out of your way to see Dresden at this time of year.   

Berlin to Prague - 13 Best Ways to Travel in 2024

13 June 2023 by Kamila

Are you planning a trip to Germany and the Czech Republic anytime soon and wondering how to smoothly get from Berlin to Prague? Don't worry; we've got you covered! These two famous capitals are only about 350 km apart. Fortunately, it's easy to travel from Berlin to Prague with numerous transportation options. We've reviewed them all in great detail so you can decide what works best for you. This is the most comprehensive and up-to-date guide about traveling from Berlin to Prague. You don't need to figure out the transportation details between the capitals; just focus on enjoying vibrant Berlin. Once you are ready to move to elegant Prague, use the information we've gathered for a hassle-free trip.

1. Berlin to Prague by Train

The most popular way to travel between the capitals is by taking the EuroCity Berlin to Prague train. There are daily direct connections, offering an easy and comfortable trip. Trains from Berlin to Prague depart every two hours, with the first connection leaving from the German capital after 7 in the morning and the last one after 5 in the afternoon.

Train stations in Berlin and Prague The Berlin to Prague train starts at Berlin Hauptbahnhof station (the underground platforms) and stops at Berlin Südkreuz before continuing the journey towards the Czech Republic, with a few stops along the way. In Prague, trains arrive at Praha-Holesovice before terminating at Praha hlavni nadrazi train stations. Both in Berlin and Prague, all train stations are easily reachable by public transport.

Train tickets from Berlin to Prague The Berlin to Prague train journey takes a little over four hours, providing enough time to read, admire the views, and not get too bored or tired. Currently, there is no high-speed train (like ICE or TGV) operating between Berlin and Prague, but the trains that run are still fast and modern, so you won't feel much of a difference. The price for a Berlin to Prague train ticket starts at €25 when purchased in advance and can increase to €75 just before departure. You can buy the train ticket online from either the German Railways or Czech Railways website; it's worth checking both as prices may vary. Alternatively, you can go directly to the train station in the German capital (any station with a Deutsche Bahn clients' center) and purchase a ticket there, although it won't lower the cost of the Berlin to Prague train. If you decide to buy the ticket at Berlin Hauptbahnhof (the central train station), you will find the ticket office on the upper floor. If you're traveling around Europe with a rail pass, you can also use your Interrail or Eurail pass for the Berlin to Prague trip. Currently, there are no RegioJet connections between Berlin and Prague, so your only option to travel by train between the capitals is trains operated by national carriers Deutsche Bahn / Ceske Drahy. When taking a train ride from Berlin to Prague, you can also enjoy beautiful views along the way. Part of the journey between Bad Schandau and Decin passes through the region of Bohemian Switzerland / Saxon Switzerland, one of the most scenic places in this area of Europe.

2. Berlin to Prague Transfer Tour

Since you need to get from Berlin to Prague, why not use the journey between the cities to see some unique places along the way? The best option to do so is the Berlin to Prague Transfer Tour . When using this option, you can visit beautiful destinations that would generally take much longer to reach, learn more about the region's culture, history, and traditions, and meet like-minded fellow travelers.

Stop 1: Moritzburg Castle The Berlin to Prague sightseeing transfer departs from a central location near Ostbahnhof in the capital of Germany at 9 in the morning. After approximately 2 hours, you will arrive at your first stop - the stunning Moritzburg Castle. This spectacular example of German Baroque architecture takes your breath away with its beauty and is one of the most picturesque castles in the country. You will have the opportunity to wander around the lovely park and may even try on Cinderella's shoe.

Stop 2: Dresden From Moritzburg Castle, it's a short ride to another stop - Dresden. Badly destroyed during World War II, Dresden rose like a phoenix from the ashes and is now one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. You will explore the charming historic center and learn more about the city, its history, and its monuments. This is also where you will have a lunch break before continuing your journey to the next destination.

Stop 3: Bastei Bridge The entire area of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains is stunning, but you will visit an absolute must-see location - the Bastei Bridge. Built in the 19th century, the bridge was incorporated into the rock formation and still impresses with its scenic construction today. After visiting the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, you will drive directly to your final destination for the day - Prague. You can expect to arrive at the center of the Czech capital around 7 in the evening. Prices for the highly-rated  Transfer Tour from Berlin to Prague start at €85 for a group tour. You will travel in a comfortable vehicle with a local tour guide who will answer all your questions about the region. If you would like to customize the trip, private tours are also available.

3. Berlin to Prague by Bus

Another popular option that can compete with the train is the Berlin to Prague bus. There are numerous connections throughout the day, operated by three major companies on this route: Flixbus , Student Agency , and Eurolines (you can check the timetable and purchase tickets on the companies' websites). They offer similar services: the journey by Berlin-Prague bus takes under five hours, and prices start at €18.

All buses start at Berlin ZOB station (near Messe Nord/ICC S-Bahn station) and arrive at the Florenc station in Prague (in the center). The exception is the Flixbus from Berlin to Prague, which continues the journey to the central train station in Prague. The buses from Berlin to Prague are usually modern and comfortable, with free onboard WiFi. Some connections also have an onboard entertainment system (similar to the one you find on planes) and offer complimentary hot and cold drinks, making the Berlin to Prague bus trip much more enjoyable.

4. Berlin to Prague by Private Transfer

If you want to enjoy the ease and comfort of a private transfer but don't want to drive yourself, you can choose a Berlin to Prague private transfer. It may not be the cheapest option, but it offers flexibility and a door-to-door ride. You can opt for a direct Berlin to Prague transfer or choose the option with some sightseeing stops along the way. Prices start at around €300 per car, but the final price depends on how you customize your trip.

5. Berlin to Prague by Plane

Usually, flying seems like the easiest choice when traveling, but not when it comes to getting from Berlin to Prague. Since the capitals are so close to each other and there are numerous alternatives for transportation between the cities, there is no direct flight from Berlin to Prague. If you still want to fly from Berlin to Prague, you would have to choose a connection with a transfer in one of the European airports, most likely Vienna, Frankfurt, or Munich. However, selecting this option would significantly increase your overall travel time, so it's better to consider other transportation options for getting between the cities.

6. Berlin to Prague by Car

You can also travel from Berlin to Prague by car, either directly or with interesting stops along the way. This part of Europe is filled with great places to visit, both natural and historical, that are often overlooked by tourists. You can turn your journey from Berlin to Prague into a fun road trip and choose how much time you want to spend traveling between the capitals. The fastest route takes around 4 hours, but you can extend it to a few days if you wish. Starting in Berlin, your first stop can be Spreewald, a nature getaway known as the German Venice, perfect for kayak tours. Continue your trip to Dresden, but before reaching this stunning city, you can make a stop at the Baroque Moritzburg Castle or the charming town of Meissen, famous for its porcelain. In Dresden, you can take a longer break to explore all the fantastic attractions the city has to offer, and there are plenty of them. Right at the border of Germany and the Czech Republic, you can't miss the Bohemian/Saxon Switzerland National Parks, known for their breathtaking nature and excellent hiking trails. Before reaching your final destination, Prague, you can also visit picturesque towns such as Melnik and Litomerice, which showcase the typical scenery and vibe of Central Europe. If you want to make a little detour, you can also visit Görlitz (where numerous Hollywood movies were filmed, such as "Grand Hotel Budapest," "Inglourious Basterds," or "Around the World in 80 Days"), Liberec, or even Poland. These are just a few suggestions of where to stop when driving from Berlin to Prague! When renting a car to travel from Berlin to Prague, keep in mind that the price will increase automatically since you will be returning the vehicle to a different location. Consider taking a sightseeing transfer instead, where you will pay less and still have the opportunity to visit fascinating destinations along the way.

7. Berlin to Prague by Bike

If you prefer traveling on two wheels, you can easily ride your bike from Berlin to Prague. Both Germany and the Czech Republic are bike-friendly countries, so you can expect decent infrastructure and designated bike trails along the way. The Berlin to Prague cycle route takes you through scenic areas, including the beautiful Bohemian/Saxon Switzerland with its incredible rock formations. Make sure to plan your trip to include stops at the best places along the route. You can also take a detour and explore the idyllic countryside by taking backroads from Berlin to Prague. If you want to travel between the capitals by bike but don't feel confident enough to do it on your own or don't want to deal with all the practical aspects, you can join a Berlin to Prague bike tour. This is a popular way to enjoy an active holiday and experience the highlights of Central Europe.

8. Berlin to Prague by Car Sharing

Car sharing is a popular way of traveling in Europe, especially for last-minute trips within the next few days. The most popular website that connects drivers with passengers is BlaBlaCar . To use this service, you need to sign up, browse the available rides, and connect with a driver to arrange the details. When taking BlaBlaCar from Berlin to Prague, you can expect to pay around 20-25€ for the trip. However, when searching for a ride, be mindful that the website also shows bus connections for this route. It's easy to filter and find the option you're interested in. While car sharing is generally a good option, it's important to consider all the details. Sometimes the departure or arrival point might be away from the city center, which means you'll need to navigate getting there and back, and it may require additional time and effort.

9. Berlin to Prague by Hitchhiking

If you're seeking adventure and the excitement of unplanned travel, why not consider hitchhiking from Berlin to Prague? This way, you can save money and enjoy the spontaneity of an unscripted journey, experiencing the kindness of strangers along the way. If you're fortunate, you might even catch a ride all the way to the Czech Republic. However, a more feasible option is to aim for Dresden first and then continue your journey towards Prague. One of the best spots to hitchhike south from Berlin is the A100 motorway, which passes through the German capital. You can easily reach this location by taking the U-Bahn U6 or S-Bahn S41, S42, S45, S46, or S47 to Tempelhof, followed by a short walk to the motorway junction. Another suitable spot is the B96a highway in Schöneweide, which is also accessible via public transport. Regardless of the spot you choose, you're in for an exciting and adventurous experience!

10. Walking from Berlin to Prague

Fans of walking can easily embark on a journey from Berlin to Prague on foot. Covering a distance of approximately 350km, it is recommended to allocate at least ten days for this trek. However, if you wish to explore the exciting places in Germany and the Czech Republic along the way, you will require additional time. The essentials for this adventure are comfortable shoes, being in decent physical shape, and wearing a big smile on your face. With these preparations, you'll be all set to walk from Berlin to Prague.

11. Berlin to Prague by River Cruise

If you're seeking an unconventional holiday experience, consider embarking on a Berlin to Prague river cruise. This unique journey involves spending at least a week floating along the Elbe River and exploring fascinating destinations along the route. While it's not possible to travel the entire distance from Berlin to Prague by boat, you will need to utilize buses for certain parts of the journey at the beginning and end. To provide an example itinerary, Viking Cruises offers a Berlin to Prague river cruise with stops in Potsdam, Wittenberg, Meissen, Dresden, and Saxon Switzerland. Prices for a Berlin to Prague river cruise typically start around €2,700 for a 10-day trip.

12. Day Trip from Berlin to Prague

While technically it is possible to take a tour from Berlin to Prague and back in one day, we do not recommend it. The journey between the capitals would consume approximately 9-10 hours of your time, leaving little opportunity for sightseeing and fully enjoying Prague. However, if Prague is your next destination during your trip, you can opt for a fun day trip from Berlin to Prague while traveling between the two cities. The most efficient way to do this is by using a sightseeing transfer , which allows you to travel smoothly and hassle-free from Berlin to Prague while exploring some of the most interesting and beautiful places along the route. We have provided detailed information about the sightseeing transfer at the beginning of this guide.

13. Private Jet from Berlin to Prague

If you enjoy luxury travel and have the means, you can charter a private jet from Berlin to Prague. It is a premium option, and the cost can be substantial, starting at around €8,000 for chartering a plane. However, chartering a private jet allows you to personalize the trip according to your preferences and travel in utmost comfort from Berlin to Prague.

How much does it cost ?

Advance-purchase fares start from €18.90 in 2nd class or €27.90 in 1st class.

Sparpreis (savings) fares are advance-purchase fares with dynamic prices & limited availability at each price level.  They are only good for the specific departure you book, limited refunds, no changes to travel plans.  A round trip is two one-ways.  If you're happy to book ahead and commit to a specific train, this is what you want.  Book early & avoid popular days for the cheapest prices.

The fully-flexible fare is around €80-€95 in 2nd class or €140-€160 in 1st class.

The Flexpreis is what you pay if you want to stay flexible or buy a ticket at the station on the day.  Flexpreis tickets are good for any Berlin-Prague train that day, unlimited availability, can't sell out.  The price varies by date.

Children:  Children under 6 go free, no ticket required.  Children under 15 also go free when accompanied by a parent or grandparent on a Sparpreis fare and added to the booking at .  This offer is not available if you book at .

How to buy tickets

Buy tickets at the German Railways website . 

Booking normally opens up to 6 months ahead, but dates after the mid-December timetable change usually open for booking in mid-October.  More about when booking opens .

I recommend registering when prompted, as you can then log in at any time to check or re-print your tickets.

Seat reservations

Seat reservations are optional, but recommended for a small extra charge, €4.90 in 2nd class, €5.90 in 1st class, see travel tips .

Stopover in Dresden?

You can include a stopover at Dresden at no extra cost.  Before running the enquiry at , simply click Stopovers , enter Dresden and a length of stay of up to 48 hours.  There are left luggage lockers available at Dresden if you need them.

What are the trains like?

The EuroCity trains between Berlin & Prague are run jointly by the German, Czech & Austrian national railways.  Most Berlin-Prague trains use modern CD (Czech Railways) EuroCity cars branded Berliner, as shown below. 

There are two exceptions:  The 09:16 from Berlin & 14:28 from Prague is the EuroCity Hungaria to/from Budapest, this uses smart air-conditioned Hungarian coaches & Hungarian restaurant car see the photos here .  The 06:15 from Berlin & 17:31 from Prague is the railjet Vindobona to/from Vienna, see the photos here .

The usual formation for the Czech trains is:  2 x 2nd class open plan car, 3 x 2nd class cars with 6-seat compartments, restaurant car, 1st class open-plan car.  However, extra cars are added at peak times and formations vary.  The 1st class car is normally at the front in the Berlin>Prague direction, at the back Prague>Berlin.

Travel tips

1st or 2nd class?

2nd class is absolutely fine for most travellers, there's no need to go 1st class unless you don't mind the extra cost.  But see what prices you get at because with dynamic pricing 1st class sometimes doesn't cost very much more.  1st class simply means more leg and elbow room and usually a quieter environment.  1st class also gets you solo seats and tables-for-two on one side of the aisle, as seats are arranged 2+1 across the car width rather than 2+2 as in 2nd class.

The once-per-day railjet train (marked Railjet in the timetables above) also has business class , a premium 1st class for which you pay €15 on top of any 1st class fare or railpass.  See the photos here .

Power sockets, WiFi & toilets

There are power sockets at all seats in both classes on all train types.  Each car has at least one toilet, usually two.  There's good mobile data reception along most of the route.

The cars owned by CD (Czech Railways) have free WiFi with unlimited data whilst in the Czech Republic, Slovakia or Hungary, but data may be limited whilst the train is in Germany.  The railjet also has free WiFi in all classes.

You can pretty much take any luggage you like, nobody cares how much it weighs or what size it is.  You take it with you onto the train and put it on the luggage rack, there's plenty of luggage space in both classes.  The racks above your seat take anything up to backpack-size, the racks at the end of each open-plan saloon car will take large suitcases.  In compartment cars, large items just go on the floor.  More about luggage on European trains .

A seat reservation is recommended

A seat reservation is optional on Berlin-Prague trains.  If you choose not to reserve a seat you sit in any empty unreserved seat - a small paper label or electronic display above each seat shows whether it is reserved or not.

However, I strongly recommend reserving a seat especially in summer or on any Friday or Sunday afternoon as these trains get very busy.  You can add a seat reservation when you book, charges €4.90 per seat in 2nd class, €5.90 in 1st class.

It's not possible to specify a seat facing direction of travel on these trains as the reservation system knows the carriage layout but cannot predict which way round the carriage will be marshalled in the train.  But you can request a window or aisle seat, a seat in an open-plan saloon or a 6-seat compartment, or a seat with a table ( tisch in German), which means face-to-face seats at a fixed wooden table.  All seats in fact have small drop-down tables.

If you already have a ticket (or Eurail or Interrail pass) you can make a reservation-only booking for a €3 at by changing Purchase a ticket to Purchase reservations only under the train you want in the search results.

Seat selection from a seat map

On Berlin-Prague trains you can select your seats from a seat map when using Czech Railways , but you can't with German Railways at .  And it's cheaper to make reservations at , €3 rather than €4.90!

At , you can either buy your ticket & reservation together, or you can make a seat reservation on its own to go with any existing ticket or pass, select a train and look for the Reservations only box at the top of the search results.  Then watch out for the Select seats from the seating map link.

Which side for the best scenery?

The best scenery is on the left hand side going south from Berlin to Prague, right hand side going north from Prague to Berlin, as that's the side the rivers Elbe & Vlatava are on.  You cannot specify which side you sit if you make a seat reservation for the reason explained above, but you can always switch sides to any free unreserved seat.

Saloon or compartment?

If you choose to reserve, the site asks if you prefer an open-plan saloon or a seat in a traditional 6-seater-compartment.  On the Berlin-Prague EuroCity trains there's usually only one 1st class car with open-plan seating - there are usually no 1st class compartments.  In 2nd class there may be both classic cars with a side-corridor and 6-seat compartments and perhaps one car with open-plan saloon seating.   Some people prefer classic 6-seat compartments, especially if they are a family or a group of friends, I personally prefer open-plan seating as it feels more spacious, less confined and you get a better view through multiple windows.  It's your call!  On your ticket it will say Abteil for compartment, or Grossraumwagen for open-plan car.

Seat numbering plans:   Click here for train seating layout .  Check the train formation first!

Prague Hlavni or Prague Holesovice?

Normally, all trains use Prague Hlavni , which is the centrally-located main station, walking distance from the old town and most hotels.  They also call at Prague's secondary station, Prague Holesovice , which is further from the centre.  It's easy enough to transfer by local train, metro or taxi between Prague Holesovice and the city centre, but Prague Hlavni is much better located, walking distance from most sights.

Boarding your train

As with virtually all European trains, there's no check-in.  Just stroll into the station, find your train and get on, any time before it leaves.  The doors may be closed a minute before departure.  At Berlin Hbf , trains to Prague use the north-south platforms 1-8 down the escalators below ground level, as opposed to the east-west lines above ground level.  See Berlin Hbf station guide .  See Prague Hlavni station guide .

Bicycles can be taken on Berlin-Prague trains, bike spaces must be booked in advance, you can add a bike to your booking at .

Restaurant car

The restaurant car is open to everyone, and having a sit-down waiter-served meal on a crisp white tablecloth served on proper china as the scenery glides by is a real treat.  There are no table reservations, just go along and sit down.  You can use the counter at the other end of the car if you want to buy snacks or drinks to take back to your seat.  On most departures it's a Czech restaurant car run by catering subsidiary JLV, you can see current menus by route at if you use Google translate and hunt around a bit.  Euros and Koruna are accepted in the restaurant car, as are major credit cards - but take cash if you can, as the credit card machine relies on mobile phone reception.  You may find that at designated times happy hour applies and the prices are lower!

It is located at the site from where the Nazis planned and managed most of their crimes.

Day 6 – Vienna

Enjoy a full day of sightseeing in Vienna with your 48 hour Vienna Card . Maybe you want to visit the “ Ringstrasse ”, a circular road around the inner city districts of Vienna. In the 19th century the road was replacing the Old City Wall which had been built in the 13th century.  Many of the buildings you find along this road, the Austrian Parliament Building or the University of Vienna the for example, were built around the 1850´s. You may want to visit Schonbrunn Palace and its beautiful Garden. Your Vienna Card covers the fare to get there; the subway station “Schonbrunn” (subway line U4) is very close to the entrance of Schonbrunn Palace, once the summer residence of the Habsburg family and home of Maria Theresa. The Rococo palace is one of the most important architectural, cultural and historical monuments in Austria and nowadays is one of the most visited sights in Vienna. It all started with the building of a mansion on hunting grounds in 1548 just outside of Vienna. The impressive Palace in its present form (it has 1,441 rooms !) was built and remodeled around the 1750s by Maria Theresa. Make sure to plan in some time for a visit of Schonbrunn Garden . There you also find the Neptune Fountain and Gloriette , which was designed to symbolize the glory of the Habsburg power.

CUSTOMIZED TOUR  Dear Michaela, Just a short note to thank you for all the organizing you did for our trip through Eastern Europe. Here is a little feedback. All the trains we caught were comfortable, clean and a pleasant way to travel. We arrived in Dresden and the hotel Pullman Newa was comfortable and close to the station. Walking to the old town was easy and straightforward. The hotel room was comfortable and breakfast was good. The only strange thing was that there was no free wifi available for guests. We arrived in Prague and walked to the Liberty Hotel. So you can advise your clients that walking in itself wasn’t a problem but the cobbled streets made pulling suitcases rather difficult. We caught a taxi back to the station after our stay there. The hotel was a lovely choice and it was close to the old town and many of the attractions. The Royal Park Hotel in Budapest is close to the station. We enjoyed the attractions in Budapest and used the “Hop on Hop off” buses. We arrived in Vienna and found the hotel easily. This was a lovely hotel too. The fact that they “produce “all their own power is amazing. The staff was friendly and helpful. The underground railway system was easy to use and it made getting around very easy. Innsbruck was magnificent and the hotel was lovely and once we had a local map we found it easy to get our bearings. It snowed while we were leaving Innsbruck in the train. Exciting for us coastal dwellers! The trip was lovely. The organization was superb – everything we asked for. We will recommend you and your company to anyone here who needs information and assistance with organizing a holiday in Europe. Thank you once again and please thank Thomas too for all the help you both gave us. Kind regards, – Mario and Ilona B., South Africa  View more

We worked collaboratively with Thomas and his teach to design a tour for our areas of interest.Considering the duration and extent, everything went like clockwork and we were at our destinations on time. Thomas also provided valuable insights on places to see and routes to follow. The service of the team is meticulous with all the needed information for those not familiar with traveling in Europe.With the climate changes and the schedules to juggle everything went smoothly as planned. Very knowledgeable and reliable. Looking forward to another trip.
Hi Thomas and the entire team, I big heartfelt thanks for meticulously planning and orchestrating a smooth and fabulous trip for me and my wife to Austria, Czech and Germany. Everything was planned to the tee. Right from pick up/ drop at the airport to hotel bookings, hand picked day trips, local sightseeing guidance, city transport and inter city rail reservations. We did not have to worry about anything, all were taken care of. We just enjoyed the fascinating and scenic beauty of vienna, prague, dresden, frankfurt, berlin, munich and Salzburg. All the hotels were of high standards and very centrally located, so that made our sight seeing even more comfortable. We had upgraded our train tickets to first class and that was worth it to the last dime. The highlight of the trip was day trip to Neuschwanstein castle in Munich and Salzburg sound of music tour. We managed to see snow as well on these trips. The weather was also fantastic overall. We would give a full 5 star rating for the services offered by To europe team and would strongly recommend anyone who would like to avail their services. We can help in guidance for a simila itinerary and vouch for the star rating as well. So to summarise To Europe services - 5 star our trip - fantabulous So whoever is planning such trips and wondering how to go about it, fret not and approach ToEurope!!

These Trains Take You From Berlin to Prague Through Peaceful Countryside

I t’s easy to zoom around western Europe by train. The rail network covers just about every nook and cranny of this part of the world, making flying almost entirely irrelevant. You can get from London to Amsterdam , Paris to Zurich , Rome to Venice , Lisbon to Porto , and across the entire country of Ireland in a flash and for little money. And you can venture into Central and Eastern Europe just as easily, starting by getting from one must-see capital city, Berlin, Germany, into another, Prague, Czech Republic.

How long is the high-speed train from Berlin to Prague?

Are there direct trains from berlin to prague, is the train from berlin to prague scenic, how much does it cost to take the train from berlin to prague, are three days enough to see prague, is prague more expensive than berlin, can you do a day trip from berlin to prague, are trains in the czech republic good, where to stay in berlin and prague to be near the train stations.

Railjet trains, operated by ÖBB, the national Austrian rail operator, in collaboration with České dráhy, the national Czech railway company, are high-speed trains that run between Berlin and Prague. The journey takes around four hours and 15 minutes.

EuroCity train

The most frequent direct trains from Berlin to Prague are EuroCity (EC) trains operated by Deutsche Bahn, the national German railway company, and České dráhy, the Czech national railway. These trains run multiple times daily from around 6 AM to 5 PM and take between four hours and 35 minutes and four hours and 45 minutes to complete the journey.

You can also opt to take the less-frequent, high-speed Railjet train mentioned above.

Whatever you choose, the length of the journey remain the same (around 4.5 hours) and there’s no significant price difference. You can consult the schedule and prices for both options on Deutsche Bahn’s booking system .

The journey by train between Berlin and Prague is quite beautiful. To see the spectacular scenery, make sure you sit on the left-hand side of the train on the way from Germany to the Czech Republic, and on the right-hand side on the reserve route. The train runs along the Elbe and Vlatava rivers for long stretches of the journey, and go through green and peaceful countryside. Keep your eyes peeled for the pretty cities where the train stops along the way, including in Bad Schandau (in Germany), and Decin (in the Czech Republic).

The price of the journey by EuroCity or Railjet train from Berlin to Prague starts at $33.60 (29.90 €) for a Second-Class seat, the lowest level of flexibility, and no extras. The price increases by a minimum of $10.10 (9 €) if you opt for a First-Class ticket. If you want more flexibility, and if you wish to take advantage of some the perks offered, it’ll cost you between $3.40 (3 €) and upwards of $78.65 (70 €) more.

Some of perks offered with your booking include a City-Ticket, i.e. a free ride on public transport to and from the departing and arriving train stations; the possibility to pick whatever train on the schedule suits you best; and an assigned seat.

First Class on EuroCity and Railjet trains is usually more quiet than Second Class, and the seats are bigger, and provide more space for passengers with individual seats available.

No matter what class of service you opt for, both EuroCity and Railjet trains have air conditioning, free WiFi, power outlets at every seat, and restaurant cars. There’s also no luggage fee or restriction.

In three days, you’d get a good feel for the capital city of the Czech Republic, see the highlights, and even make a few unexpected discoveries. Start with the very scenic Charles Bridge over the Vlatava river and make your way east to Old Town where you’ll get to see the famous astronomical clock , the Church of Our Lady before Týn, and the Powder Gate Tower. For something a little different, pay the municipal library of Prague (also in Old Town) a quick visit and check out the dizzying art installation made of 8,000 books that’s been standing in the lobby since 1988. Of course, visitors cannot pass on a tour of Prague Castle located on the other side of the Vlatava river from Old Town. If you have time during your three-day stint, take a 20-minute walk south from Old Town to the New Town Hall where you can try out one of the most unique elevators in the world .

Based on the information from multiple sources (Cost of life, Expatistan, and Numbeo), the cost of living in Berlin is generally higher than that of Prague. That said, figures vary a lot from one source to another, making it quite difficult to pinpoint exactly how much more expensive Berlin is compared to Prague.

Prague is not day-trip material, especially if you’re coming from as far as Berlin. No matter how you choose to get to Prague from Berlin, it’ll take around half a day — Berlin a four-plus-hour train ride, or a five-plus-hour drive, from Prague. Instead of rushing, plan to spend three days in Prague to get a good feel for the city.

There are several train operators in the Czech Republic, reliably covering most of the country and even going further to neighboring nations:

  • České dráhy , the Czech railway company
  • Leo Express

Tour to Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp

Krakow is a beautiful city with a population that is characterized by its youth and dynamism, looking back on an illustrious past as a cultural center, bringing back its rich and artful facades that have recovered their pastel shades. Nevertheless, for those that choose to make the journey, the proximity of Auschwitz-Birkenau, 75 km away, is not only a stark reminder of horrific events in the recent past but also adds a profound sense of a raw and terrifying history that is difficult to confront emotionally or intellectually. On this privately guided tour, the struggle many travelers have with the question as to whether it is right to visit may not be fully answered to everyone's satisfaction. The, perhaps, most important point to remember is that those who survived the camps or saw family, friends or neighbors perish, were unwavering in their determination to ensure that Auschwitz should be preserved as a memorial for future generations. Many of the images will be haunting and, yes, nobody returns from this tour unaffected. It is, however, also true that the majority do not regret having done it. The area is well preserved and houses the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, originally constructed in the suburbs of the Polish city of Oswiecim, later renamed to Auschwitz. The first and oldest part of the camp became known as Auschwitz I, established on the grounds of prewar Polish barracks, where the number of prisoners fluctuated between 15,000 and 20,000. The second installation was the Birkenau camp, also known as Auschwitz II, the largest part of the Auschwitz complex, where over 90,000 prisoners were held in 1944. Your tour includes a visit to the brick-mortar barracks in Auschwitz I, and the extensive area of the large wooden buildings of the extermination camp at Auschwitz II - Birkenau. Please note that your driver-guide will only provide the private return transfers, and explanations about the history prior to entering the site. Due to local regulations, once inside Auschwitz -Birkenau, you will be joining a shared group tour led by an officially licensed local guide. This tour is not suitable for children under 14.

City Tour with Wawel Castle

Poland's former capital is, beyond question, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. On this privately guided tour, you'll experience many of its highlights after meeting your guide in the lobby of your hotel. A UNESCO World Heritage site since 1978, it is often compared to other medieval Central European cities but has always had a flair uniquely its own, combining a little bit of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles. While avoiding the almost total destruction of Warsaw, it still suffered greatly during WWII and the post-war communist regime tried its best to eradicate the soul of the city which they considered middle-class and a hotbed for intellectuals. In the end, communist neglect protected it from modernity, allowing a revitalization effort which created a young city that regained its vibrant colors. Today's Krakowians are proud of their city, its heritage as well as its intellectual and artistic life, cultivating a wonderful nonchalance that some compare to an almost Viennese spirit. On this half-day excursion, you'll start at the Market Square, one of the biggest in Europe, and a reminder of the power and wealth of medieval Krakow. With houses displaying Renaissance and Baroque facades, the famous Cloth Hall and oodles of pavement cafes, the Rynek, as it is known, is one of the most beautiful squares in Europe. Close by, it's the towering edifice of St. Mary's Cathedral - originally built in the early 13th Century - that awaits your visit. The exterior is impressive for sure, but the interior is, possibly, the most amazing you have ever seen. Virtually every square inch is ornately decorated, painted, carved, frescoed, or otherwise covered in the most fabulous colors imaginable, the piece de resistance being the 15th-century altar. Krakow's multicultural heritage and huge student population make it a vibrant city all year round, its Jagiellonian University, a research institution founded in 1364 by Casimir III the Great, is the second oldest university in Central Europe, and one of the oldest surviving universities in the world.

On your way to reach Wawel Hill, you'll pass the Planty, a vast leafy promenade that surrounds the historic center on the site of the city's old ramparts. Crowned by its royal castle and cathedral, Wawel is the crucible of Polish identity and a place that is highly symbolic since it was used for the coronation of kings. Built on the remains of a 10th-century settlement it features magnificent Renaissance interior spaces together with the famous Wawel Tapestries, considered by art historians to be a priceless and unparalleled collection of woven artworks. An important part of the historic structure is the Cathedral and you'll have a chance to see the Royal Chambers, the underground necropolis with tombs and sarcophagi, as well as the famous bell tower. The Royal Sigismund Bell is the largest of the five bells hanging in the Wawel Cathedral, named after its patron, Sigismund I, King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania, who commissioned it. It weighs 13 tons!

Finally, at the end of your tour, you'll come down to the Vistula River where you can admire the statue of a fearsome dragon from Polish folklore, not exactly well known around the world. Let your guide tell the story about Smok, the Wawel dragon.

City Tour with Royal Castle

Enjoy an enlightening, privately guided tour of Warsaw, Poland's capital and the country's commercial center. A city with a stormy history, it felt the touch of Napoleon who officially created the Duchy of Warsaw on his way to Moscow, lived through national uprisings and tsarist repressions, and barely survived the Second World War. All these events left their individual imprints on the city. This includes the towering Palace of Culture and Science, a Stalinist behemoth built by Soviet architect Lev Rudnev, and a stark reminder of Warsaw's days under communist rule. Today, it is occupied by rather more sociable institutions such as two museums, a university, four theatres, a multiplex cinema, and a swimming pool. The city's Old Town, dating back to the 13th century, was almost entirely destroyed during WWII but has been meticulously reconstructed and is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Here, everywhere you go, are evocations of Warsaw's tempestuous past, as much as its reconstruction. Without abandoning its past, today's Old Town has also ushered in an exciting new era. It's a bustling hub with cobblestone alleys and medieval buildings, at the heart of which is the Old Town Market Place, a busy square lined with burgher houses, boutiques, bars, and upscale Polish eateries. Nearby, St. John's Arch cathedral dates to the 14th century and hosts all kinds of concerts during the summer while next to the manicured gardens of the Royal Castle, there are now many restored contemporary apartment buildings. The city's contemporary, creative and even quirky side has, quite naturally, led to the development of trendy neighborhoods, of which Praga, across from the historic center on the other side of the Vistula is, probably, the most popular. On a more curious note, outside some of downtown's subway stations and next to pedestrian crossings, street-sellers have established a thriving business selling, guess what, doughnuts. Your private guide can elaborate on many of the historical and current topics. One of the most fascinating stories is how Varsovians, the name for residents of Warsaw, reconstructed their city. Partially this was done based on cityscapes by the Venetian painter Bernardo Belloto, the nephew of the more famous Canaletto. Belloto had been appointed a court painter to the King of Poland and created very accurate scenes of Warsaw's buildings and squares in 1768. Since 1984 they have been exhibited in the Royal Castle's Canaletto room, which you will visit during your tour. During today's sightseeing, you'll also see the famous site of a row of buildings, cut in half by the war, near the former ghetto and the Presidential Palace where the Warsaw Pact was signed in 1955. The drive along the Royal Route culminates with a visit of the Royal Castle, once the residence of the Polish kings, seat of the Senate and the place where the Polish Constitution was signed.

This post contains links which earn me a small commission at no cost to you.

Ali Garland, Berlin expert & long term resident Getting Around

Are you wondering how to get from Berlin to Prague ? It’s pretty easy to add Prague to your trip before or after Berlin. In this post, I’ll show you options for taking the bus or train from Berlin to Prague and why flying to Prague from Berlin doesn’t really work.

Prague is a great city to add to your trip before or after visiting Berlin. The distance from Berlin to Prague is too far for a day trip from Berlin , but Prague is a wonderful city to visit for a few days for its own unique history and culture.

I’ve visited Prague several times during my years of living in Berlin, and getting there is simple. Keep reading for details on different options for getting to Prague from Berlin .

How to get to Prague from Berlin

Traveling from Berlin to Prague is easy when you know how to do it. I personally prefer the train option, but the bus could be a good option if you’re traveling on a budget . And while you can technically fly from Prague to Berlin or vice versa, I don’t think it’s a good choice for several reasons.

Let’s take a look at the different ways of traveling from Berlin to Prague.

What is the distance from Berlin to Prague?

The driving distance from Berlin to Prague is roughly 350km (217 miles) depending on exactly which route you take. This means it can take anywhere from four to five hours to drive depending on which route you choose, traffic conditions, and any road work that might be happening.

Driving could be an interesting option if you enjoy road trips, if you understand the road rules in Germany and Czech Republic, and if you want to make stops along the way.

If you’d like to rent a car, grab a quote from Discover Cars . Be sure to indicate that you’ll be driving in other countries besides Germany.

But keep in mind, parking isn’t easy in central Berlin or central Prague, and you have to understand driving laws in both countries. If you’d rather avoid the stress, traveling by train or bus can be faster and easier.

That’s why I have all the details you need for taking the bus or train from Berlin to Prague, and why it probably doesn’t make sense to fly to Prague from Berlin.

How to Get from Berlin to Prague by Train

Getting around in Germany using Deutsche Bahn is pretty simple, and getting from Berlin to Prague is no exception.

It’s also worth looking at the Czech Rail site, České dráhy , because sometimes tickets for the same train are cheaper there. I picked a random day about a week out from when I’m writing this, and there were a few trains that were cheaper on the Czech site, a few that were more expensive, and a few that were the same. So it’s worth looking at both to compare.

Berlin to Prague by train - Czech railways train

The high speed trains between Prague and Berlin take roughly 4 and a half hours with no changes. There’s usually a train roughly once every two hours.

You’ll see a few options on the Czech site that do have changes, and they usually have at least one leg with a regional (slower) train, so I don’t really think those options are worthwhile.

Most direct trains from Berlin to Prague have stops at a few different Berlin train stations , including Südkreuz, Berlin Hbf (central station), and Spandau. Look at where you’re staying to decide which station is best for you, but for most people Berlin Hbf is the most convenient, followed by Südkreuz.

Using high speed trains from Berlin to Prague

When using high speed trains, you are usually bound to the exact train you choose, so you can’t hop on any train on that route. So if you booked a train from Berlin to Prague for 11am, you must take the 11am train. (These are just example times, not indicative of any actual schedule.)

to Berlin from Prague main station departures board

The exception is if you buy the more expensive Flexpreis (Flexible Fare) ticket that allows this. I generally don’t think it’s worth the extra expense, unless you absolutely need that flexibility.

High speed train numbers will start with ICE, IC, or EC. On the Berlin-Prague route, they are almost always run by the Czech rail company, so you’ll see EC with the train number.

>>Check prices and schedules on the Deutsche Bahn website in English .

Using regional trains from Berlin to Prague

Using regional trains to get to Prague from Berlin isn’t really a good idea. I’ve seen anywhere from 4 changes to 8 changes, and the journey time is anywhere from 7 to 10 hours.

And it doesn’t even save you any money. Even if you have a Deutschland ticket (Germany’s 49 euro ticket) that will only get you as far as the border, so you’d still have to buy train tickets from the border to Prague.

Prague old town square - train from Berlin to Prague

But in general, I think the distance from Berlin to Prague is too far for using the regional trains, especially since there’s often no cost savings. If you plan ahead, you can usually get a pretty good price on the EC train, and you’ll lose a lot less of your vacation time.

Are there seat reservations on high speed trains to Prague from Berlin?

On high speed trains in Germany, your second class ticket does not come with a seat reservation. This means you can sit anywhere within second class that isn’t already reserved.

Seat reservations cost 4.90 euros, and it’s highly recommended that you reserve. At busy times, and on popular routes such as Berlin to Prague, the train could be rather full. I traveled this route recently, and there were quite a few people standing because they couldn’t find seats and hadn’t booked seat reservations.

Germany train seat reservations Berlin to Prague

Whether you book your tickets through Deutsche Bahn or through Czech Rail, you can reserve seats on the train from Berlin to Prague.

When I was on the train from Prague to Berlin recently, the digital signs above the seats that normally indicate whether or not a seat is reserved wasn’t showing anything when we boarded in Prague. This caused even more chaos for people who didn’t have seat reservations.

(The picture above is from a Deutsche Bahn train, but this is very similar to how you can see if seats are reserved on a Czech train…as long as the Czech rail people actually turn on their reservation indicators.)

Finally once we crossed the border into Germany, the reservation info appeared. So if you have seats and someone is sitting in your seat, simply tell them you’ve reserved those seats and they should move.

When buying a first class ticket, seat reservations are included as long as you select it at the time of booking.

Regional trains do not have seat reservations. But be aware that most regional trains in Germany do have a small 1st class section, and you can’t sit there on a 2nd class ticket.

How to buy a train ticket from Berlin to Prague

There are several ways to buy a train ticket to Prague from Berlin, and all are fairly simple. High speed trains are often cheaper if you book several weeks in advance, so planning ahead helps.

They have recently made it harder to buy tickets on the train, and in many cases it’s not even possible. You will get checked almost every time, so don’t get on a train without a ticket.

In person Deutsche Bahn has ticket offices in the train stations in Berlin, so you can buy a ticket in person. They won’t always speak English though, so this can be tricky.

If you decide to buy your ticket this way, I highly recommend going to Berlin Hauptbahnhof (central station) to buy your ticket. Here you’ll have a better chance of finding an employee who speaks at least some English.

If you’re coming from Prague to Berlin, you can also buy tickets at the Prague Main Station at a ticket office. Again, there might be a bit of a language barrier if you can’t find someone who speaks English.

DB ticket machines - Berlin to Prague train

At a machine There are ticket machines at both train stations, and they have a language option so you can switch it to English. The Deutsche Bahn ones are the same machines used at Sbahn stations in Berlin.

Simply follow the prompts to buy your ticket. Remember that times are often displayed in a 24 hour format, so 5pm would be 17:00, as an example.

Online Tickets can also be purchased on the Deutsche Bahn website or on the České dráhy website , which are both available in English. Once you’re done with your purchase, you’ll get an email with a PDF of your ticket which you can show on the train.

Deutsche Bahn app The Deutsche Bahn app is also available in English, and it’s easy to use. Once you’ve purchased your ticket, you’ll have it right there in your app. You can also purchase a ticket online and later easily add it to your app.

The Czech rail company also has an app, which is also available in English, but I haven’t used it. Reviews indicate it’s pretty good though.

Types of tickets

When buying tickets online, once you put in your start and end cities, date and time info, and number of people, you’ll get a list of routes for that day. Choose a time, and you’ll have different ticket options to choose from, as seen in the photo below.

DB price ticket options how to get from Berlin to Prague by train

In general, cheaper tickets have more restrictions. The Sparpreis tickets bind you to the exact train, while the Flexpreis tickets let you take any train on that route that day.

For more detailed info, jump over to my step-by-step instructions on how to book train tickets on Deutsche Bahn .

Can I go to Prague with 49 euro ticket?

The 49 euro ticket is officially called the Deutschland ticket. It is a subscription ticket that currently costs 49 euros per month. It’s valid on local German transport and regional trains.

However, it is NOT valid on high speed trains or trains from other countries. High speed trains have numbers that start with ICE, IC, or EC, to name a few. So the normal trains that go from Berlin to Prague will require a standard ticket.

The only way you could do it is to use regional trains in Germany to get to the Czech border, and then book a Czech train from there. But this would take 3-4 hours just to reach the border, plus the time to get from the border to Prague. I don’t recommend doing this.

Are there other companies that run trains to Prague from Berlin?

The Czech rail company also sells tickets from Berlin to Prague. They are usually the ones operating the trains on that route, so you can buy from either company.

Sometimes the Czech site is cheaper, but sometimes Deutsche Bahn is cheaper. It’s always worth looking at both to compare, even if you have to convert Czech currency to euros to see the price difference.

How to Get from Berlin to Prague by Bus

If you’re traveling on a budget, FlixBus is another great option.

They have several buses that leave Berlin early morning, mid afternoon, and in the evening. Some of the evening buses go overnight to Prague from Berlin, arriving at painfully early times in the morning.

Flixbus - bus from Berlin to Prague

The bus journey from Berlin to Prague takes anywhere from 4 to 5 hours, without traffic problems. Most options don’t involve switching buses on the Berlin Prague route, although there are a few that have switches in Dresden. This makes your travel time longer and in most cases doesn’t even save money, so I don’t see any advantage in taking one of these over the direct routes.

Berlin has bus services from several stations, though not all stations are on every route. The buses to Prague from Berlin mostly leave from the central bus station, though sometimes there are options from other Berlin bus stations, such as Südkreuz, or the airport.

The central bus station, called Berlin ZOB, is located in the western side of Berlin, quite far from the center. Give yourself plenty of time to get there. If possible, I’d choose one of the other stations to start from, such as Südkreuz.

FlixBus is a comfortable option that will most likely save you money, and it’s roughly the same amount of time, sometimes an extra half hour, for getting from Berlin to Prague.

Always compare Flixbus with Deutsche Bahn and the Czech rail company to determine which price and time combo works best for you.

I’ve taken FlixBus more times than I can count, both in Germany and in other parts of Europe. Their buses are comfortable and safe, and I would highly recommend them if you’re trying to save a few bucks.

The buses do have a bathroom, though I can’t vouch for their cleanliness because I do whatever I can to avoid going to the bathroom on moving vehicles.

Are there seat reservations on FlixBus?

FlixBus does have an option to reserve a seat. This is good for people who want to make sure they’re seated with their family or friends, or if you are particular about where you sit.

But buying a ticket guarantees you a seat, so you don’t have to reserve a specific seat if it’s not important to you. Standing is not allowed on long distance buses.

Prices for seat reservations vary depending on the type of seat the route. They range from 1.50 to 5 euros.

How to buy a bus ticket to Prague from Berlin

There are a few different ways to book a bus ticket to Prague from Berlin.

In person Technically you can buy a FlixBus ticket from the ticket office at the ZOB (central bus station) but I wouldn’t recommend it.

I’ve been over there to catch a bus several times and almost every time I’ve noticed that the office was closed. Even if they were just closed for a short break, this feels too stressful when there are easier ways to book a ticket.

There are multiple travel agents around the city that can book you a FlixBus ticket, but finding them is even more of a hassle.

bus from Berlin to Prague tower old town square

Online The FlixBus website is an easy way to book tickets. It’s available in multiple languages.

You can search your route, and it’ll show you all starting and ending points. So if you want to travel from Berlin to Prague, you can see which stations the bus leaves from and buy based on that.

Once you’ve purchased your ticket, you’ll get an email with a PDF that you can show the bus driver when boarding the bus.

FlixBus app The FlixBus app is also easy to use to search for routes and buy tickets. It’s available in multiple languages.

Are there other companies that run buses from Berlin to Prague?

Other bus companies operate routes in Germany, but they are not as widespread as FlixBus. I have not seen any others running on the Berlin to Prague route.

Flights from Berlin to Prague, Czech Republic

In general, I don’t recommend flying to Prague from Berlin, unless you’re connecting to another flight from the Prague Airport. Sure, the flight time makes it look faster than traveling by train, but there are so many other factors.

airplane in the sky - how to get from Berlin to Prague

Remember the time it takes to fly from Berlin to Prague doesn’t include getting to the Berlin Airport , being at the airport 1-2 hours ahead of time, waiting for checked luggage once you arrive, and then getting from Prague Airport into the city.

Plus – and this is a big one – I can’t even find any direct flights between Prague and Berlin. They all have a layover somewhere, making the journey take even longer. The shortest I can find is a little over three hours, which ends up as roughly two 1 hour flights with a 1 hour layover.

Once you factor in all of that time, you’re looking at more time than it would take to travel by train or bus to Prague from Berlin. And while prices for flights can vary greatly, they it will usually be more expensive to fly.

Flight time Berlin to Prague

Since I can’t find any direct flights, the best option I can find from Berlin to Prague is a little over 3 hours with one layover. Most flight options are even longer. Layover cities include Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich, London, and more.

It’s because of this that I think flying from Prague to Berlin or vice versa isn’t a good option.

What’s the cheapest way to get from Berlin to Prague?

Ticket prices fluctuate for both the train and the bus to Prague from Berlin, but both are affordable.

cheapest way to get from Berlin to Prague - money jar

Taking FlixBus will usually be cheaper than Deutsche Bahn or Czech rail. While writing this post, I searched for trains and buses roughly a month out, and the FlixBus options were 20-40 euros, while Deutsche Bahn was 40-90 euros, and Czech rail was 25-54.

It’s worth noting that when I compared prices using a date a week out, the two rail companies were much closer in price, with some routes showing the same price. FlixBus was only a little higher at one week vs one month out. Planning ahead will almost always save you money, no matter which company you use or whether you choose to travel by bus or by train.

Both the train and the bus are comfortable, but I’d have to give a little more credit to the train for comfort.

The travel time is roughly the same whether you choose the bus or the train. You’ll see a difference of up to 30 minutes one way or the other, so it’s not huge.

Either mode of transportation could have delays, but the train won’t have traffic problems like the bus could encounter. Both are good options for getting from Berlin to Prague.

Top airline flying from Berlin to Prague

The crew was attentive but not intrusive, and was always kind in every interaction.

the flight was canceled, and I had to stay more than six days at hotel . waiting . then I had to buy new ticket. really it was very bad experience, and I lost a lot of money and time , and your airline said sorry

Management and staff att viena wasn’t professional,and they are not good by how to communicate and solve the problem, I was shocked , as I know Austrian airlines was amusing Thank you

I bought the ticket a month before my flight but checked in couple hours before my flight and had to wait seat assignment just before take off. On top of that there was not enough room in the overhead bin for my luggage.

The baggage arrived damaged and i spent EUR 300 on the baggage a month ago. No responsibility from airline or the handles.

The flight was late. We accommodated other missed flights, and the plane was full of people, without space to store carry-on luggage. They lost our checked luggage for the entire flight and delivered it after two days.

There were a number of passengers scheduled to transfer to the flight from Vienna to Warsaw. None of them made it because the crew failed to assist them in getting to the gate for the Warsaw bound flight in time. It could have been done very easily with proper assistance.

I am Star Alliance Gold which meant nothing at security as my partner, who was on the same ticket, couldn’t come through with me which meant I had to wait for 20 minutes for him to join me. For a hub airport the lounge was small and uninspiring. We told staff of our security experience and they informed us it was like this for everyone. Isn’t this is an Austrian Airlines hub? Boarding was a nightmare as there was only one person at the gate and again, I had to go through without my partner. The boarding was supposed to be in groups but a bunch of travellers with lower groups were crowding the entry level. After I managed to get through I found myself on a bus waiting with 3 others for 15 minutes as the checkin had failed. Then only to find everyone else coming onto the same bus. My partner and friends actually beat me onboard. The crew were young and unable to control the crowd allowing people to stand in the rain instead of getting people to their seats promptly. During flight we were only offered a cup of water & a chocolate. Not impressed with Austrian Airlines or their Vienna hub airport and plan not to use them again if I can help it!

Overall pleasant flight . The lunch was exceptional! Delicious chicken curry with perfect rice and amazing chocolate (Sacher torte) for desert. I have not eaten such a good airplane meal in a very, very long time.

Flight attendants were awful, very rude and inconsiderate for mothers with small infants traveling.

Germany 's landscape is straight from the Fairy tales: castles, deep dark forests and mythical rivers. The German landscapes are extraordinarily diverse, with graceful big-city appeal, small picture-postcard towns, pagan-inspired harvest festivals, a wealth of art and culture, and the perennial pleasures of huge tracts of forest, delightful castles and fine wine and beer. From Charlemagne and the Holy Roman Empire to the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall, no other nation has molded Europe the way Germany has - for better or worse.

Austria is epitomized by green glacial valleys and snow-capped peaks - and the wooden picture postcard chalets. Nonetheless, visitors have much to explore from the stylish capital, Vienna, to the baroque splendor of Salzburg. Austria's mountain landscape is undoubtedly its biggest draw for tourists. Although a year-round destination, there is a definite seasonal split in visitors. Summer is best for exploring the countryside on the many mountain trails that snake through the Austrian Alps and the lowlands, while the ski season kicks off in December, attracting winter sports fans from all over the world.

Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is perhaps best-known for its beautiful capital, Prague, although it is known for much more, such as its numerous castles and châteaux (over 1,200 of them!). It is also well-known for having some of the most delicious food and drink in Europe, in particular its wines and famed Pilsner-style beer. The Czech Republic has and had a very long Jewish tradition, which is triumphantly on display after the horrors and loss of World War II in such places as the Great Synagogue in Plzen, the third-largest in the world. Finally, the Czech Republic is well-known for its museums, educating visitors on everything from history and art to folk arts and crafts and even life in the former Communist Czechoslovakia.

Perhaps the first thing you think of when you think of Hungary is its delicious cuisine; after all, it is the country that gave us goulash and fisherman`s soup. It is also known the world over for its 1,000-year historical tradition which bred strong folk traditions. Hungary is also known for its spring and summer festivals, its thermal spas, stunning and varied architectural styles befitting `the crossroads of Europe`, and some of the most gorgeous scenery you will find on the continent. Be sure to visit the charming capital of Budapest, split by the Danube, and then travel further afield to Transdanubia and the Great Hungarian Plain.
