Traveling from Amsterdam to Prague

Traveling with several friends (in 60s) and only have two days to spend in Germany by Eurorail. Which is best route to take? Best places to stay on route?

First of all you should avoid Eurail and their ilk. You are spending way too much time if you don't simply buy your tickets from the railway..

As to the stops - there is waay too much to see. Even Berlin alone would require more than that.

I second the above: if you have not already bought a rail pass, don't. Buy point-to-point tickets from Deutsche Bahn. http://www.bahn.de/i/view/USA/en/index.shtml

You could even consider flying the leg, since 2 days allotted for Germany is not very much and you'll pay less with a low-cost airline AMS>PRG. Or, since the train ride is long, I'd find a mid-point in the journey: maybe Würzburg?

A direct City Night Line sleeper train leaves Amsterdam Centraal every night at 19:01, arriving in downtown Prague at 09:26 next morning.

Fares from just €59 with a couchette (basic bunks with rug & pillow in 6 or 4 berth compartments) or €99 with a bed in a 2-bed sleeper with washbasin, breakfast included, shower at the end of the corridor, or from €129 with a bed in a deluxe 2-bed sleeper with private shower and toilet, breakfast included.

Book at www.bahn.de/en and print your own ticket.

If you want day trains with stopovers, how about booking Amsterdam to Berlin from €29 at www.bahn.de/en on one of the two-hourly InterCity trains, then Berlin to Prague also at bahn.de from €29.

In fact, if you'd like a few hours in Dresden, click advanced options, enter Dresden in the via box and the number of hours up to 24:00 in the stopover box, and hey presto, Berlin to Prague for €29 with a day stopover in Dresden.

Booking cheap 'budget train fares' like this in advance (booking opens 92 days ahead) is the cheap option, no refunds, no changes to travel plans of course.

Buying an expensive rail pass for unlimited flexible travel is the gold-plated option.
