It is just a normal standard price ticket from Vienna to Berlin. Not anything special.

Just go to the ticket counter in Vienna and buy a ticket to Berlin via Prague,

Since V S from Mumbai is a new TA member, he probably hasn't learned how to use the Search functions. VS, just type in some key words in the Search In Vienna box. That will give you a long list of previous discussions.

From Vienna to Prague, you can go by train or by bus. The length of the trip can be shorter by bus but before you decide, factor in your location of departure and arrival. You might find that the bus trip is shorter but your actual travel time to and from the bus station is longer.

To buy train tickets online:

http://www.oebb.at/en/index.jsp

To buy bus tickets, check www.westbus.at .

Either method, it's going to be 4 hrs or more. Your children will probably prefer the train. There's a place where you can buy food/drinks, they can walk around and the toilet is probably nicer.

I learned all this from GCEK, the DE of Train Travel. Hope he reads this and adds his useful advice.

Spot on :) However the distance to the bus stations doesn't really play a major role as they both have nearby metro stations. In Prague it is only one minute from the bus station to the main railway station by metro, but there might be different tram options.

BTW - I wouldn't be so bold as to call myself THE DE of train travel - there are many more of us, including Mikey above, but it is a common question. Gigis_mum has been kind enough to give you some great advice there.

Re. the ticket from Vienna to Berlin. You can buy a standard ticket on the day and it will cost you €129 - there is no point buying on line as it will cost the same and they are unlimited in number. This gives you total flexibility to use any train and stop off as many times as you like on the way, as long as you travel in the direction of Berlin, within a one-month period.

However, if you know when you want to travel and are happy to be restricted to the train/bus that you bought the ticket for, then you can do the same journey, stopping off at the main places on the way, i.e. Brno, Prague, Dresden, for €60-65 or less if you use the bus for a couple of the legs (very comfortable on the Czech ones - free wi-fi and refreshments/DVDs).

e.g. Vienna - Brno €9 www.studentagency.eu

Brno - Prague €8,20 www.studentagency.eu

Prague - Dresden €19 www.cd.cz/eshop

Dresden - Berlin from €19 www.bahn.com

Thanks GCEK! I knew you had a few different DE designations but I couldn't remember all of them. Allow me to re-phrase accordingly: 'GCEK, a DE of Train Travel'...

Yes, it looks as though the €29 tickets have sold out on 26/12, but there are still tickets from €39, or if you don't mind changing and taking a bit longer (6 hours) then there are even tickets for €15,80

But I would get the bus while there are still tickets left - €19 on www.westbus.at

It would be nice if such a ticket at that price existed, but unfortunately it doesn't, unless a bus company is offering a very good special offer that I haven't heard of - that sounds like it is just the reservation only which is no good without a travel ticket.

How did you find it?
