Train connections Munich Prague Munich

I will be travelling to Munich on the 20 Th Oct and would like to make a 3day / 2 night break in Prague.

What is the cheapest way to travel to Prague on 23rd Oct and come back on 25th Oct for a Group of 3 adults by train.

Thank you in advance.

For the group travel between Bavaria and Czech Republic absolutely the best options is Bavaria-Bohemia Ticket from Munich to Plzen + separate ticket Plzen-Prague (bought in advance online) for the same train, so you won't even need to get off train in Plzen. Same thing but vice versa for the Prague-Munich trip

We went to Prague from Munich last week and returned to Munich four days later. We took the student express bus for 60 euro round trip. It leaves from Munich train station and departs from the Prague train station. We took the 9:45 am bus and we were there around 1:30. Clean, comfortable coach bus with restrooms and they serve light snacks. Definitely recommend.

For the cheapest option then the solution given in no. 2 is the best - if there are three of you then it will be €34 for the Bayern-Boehmen ticket (buy on the day from an electronic machine) which will get you as far as Plzeň on one of the two regional trains - one in the morning, one afternoon. From Plzeň you will need a group ticket which you can buy on-line from www.cd.cz/eshop - English option is top right. A return ticket for three passengers costs about 600 crowns (€24.00).

For your return journey you should buy both Bayern Boehmen Tickets in Munich at the same time as separate translations - you will be asked to enter the date that it will be valid for. It is possible to buy this ticket in Prague, but it is a hassle and costs more.

This works out as c. €30 each return. No need to change trains - just show one ticket before Plzeň and the other ticket after Plzeň (and vice versa)

For all times see www.idos.cz - the only direct trains are the ones called 'Albert Einstein' and 'Franz Kafka'.

Bear in mind that this is a bit of a 'trick' - if you just go to the ticket office and buy a regular ticket to Prague it will cost you about €120 return each for exactly the same train!

The quickest is the DB express bus (which is run in conjunction with a Czech company called Studentagency - nothing to do with students!) which is comfortable and runs regularly. Cost €29 from www.bahn.com

For your dates then the Bayern/Bohemia Czech rail combo as mentioned.

Cheapest overall may have been a trip with Berr-Reisen. Unfortunately they don't have a trip on your specifc dates

www.berr-reisen.com/index.php…

The hotel "Panorama" which is included isn't exactly central. Wife & Mother have done this trip and said the Hotel is very good. Had to get the Metro in to the city centre.

We (me and the mrs) always drive

NB When using the electronic machine at the station (it has an English option), be careful not the get a 'Bayern Ticket' which is something slightly different. You must look out for 'Bayern-Böhmen Ticket'

Thanks for all.

Which train station are we speaking about in Prague.

Is it Hlavni Nadrazi ?

What 3 star hotel would you suggest within walking distance from the station.

Thank you again
