How to Travel from Copenhagen to Prague

I am considering a Baltics cruise that departs from Copenhagen. Before the cruise departs, I am able to spend two days in Prague. Here are my questions:

1. What is the best method of transport between Copenhagen and Prague (keeping in mind that I only have 2 days in Prague).

2. If it is by train, where can I get more information on the train schedules, fares, etc.?

3. If it is by plane, what airlines should I research for fares?

Thank you!

Greetings

I think flying would be the only practical way to go - it's a LONG train ride. A quick search at the Copenhagen Airport website indicates that a number of airlines do direct flights: SAS, Sterling (discount airlines) and CSA Czech. The flight times are about 1 hr 20 minutes, with prices for October starting at $260 roundtrip, but I'm sure the price will vary by date and time.

You can use expedia.com to search for prices on SAS and CSA Czech, but you might want to check their homepages as well because airlines somtimes advertise special rates on their websites. For Sterling, you'll have to check their website. I've heard of problems with them, but have no first hand experience so can't really comment.

I agree with the previous post - take a plane....

BUT if you do go for the train then you can get there in about 13 hours with 1 change in Hamburg.

ALL the time tables you are able to find here (in english)

We also have the same dilemma and have found an airline called Cimber that flies direct from Prague to Copenhagen.

Two questions: anyone familiar with this airline and do they discount tickets now and then?

Also, if arriving at the airport and leaving from the cruise terminal on Regent, what would be a decent hotel for one night?

Cimber do not fly to Prague - I dont know how you got that information...?

There are 3 airlines with non-stop flight to Prague:

Czech Airlines

http://www.csa.cz

SAS

http://www.scandinavian.net

Sterling:

http://www.sterling.dk

Check them out for the lowesest prices and best times.

NOTE: SAS flies this route with Dash 8 Turboprop airplanes. It is the newset models and realy nice but i know that some people do not like propellar planes so that is the reason for mentioning this.. The other 2 airlines flies with Boing 737 where Sterling usaly flies the newest planes.

Regarding the hotel: What do you mean with Leaving on "Regent".

What is your budget for the hotel?

Feel free to ask question you want....

I apologize. I meant flying from Bucharest to Copenhagen on Cimber. Sorry for confusion.

We would be leaving on the cruise ship line Regent which used to be Radisson.

So, we would be there overnight .... Reasonable to me is under $175, but at first glance I didn't see much in that range and would appreciate some guidance.

Has anyone found a reasonable fare from CPH to Prague? Cimber doesn't go to Prague. Sterling does and was about $250 usd round trip. Anyone know of something cheaper than that?

I checked on Travelwatch.dk (good site when you are flying from Denmark) and the cheapest fare is indeed on supersaver.dk flying with Czech airlines.

Have a nice trip!
