Train Paris to Prague

Hi, My friends and I are planning to go to Prague from Paris. Is there a direct train (preferably night train) from Paris to Prague? or better yet, a direct train from lourdes to prague?

the next best thing would be a train going to prague (from paris or lourdes) that has a stop in salzburg?

been scouring the internet for weeks now, but can't find any. Hope you can help us out.

And you post this question in the Viennese forum ??

from Paris you mostly go via Germany and from there look for an train.

like Paris North - Cologne - Praha hln

Salzburg is not on the route so you have to go Paris - Germany - Salzburg - Prague.

You can scour as long as you like, but you won't find anything, still less will you find anything that goes through Austria or Vienna :)

Use a rail planner such as www.idos.cz (English bottom right) and then look in the Czech Republic forum, where this has been covered quite extensively. basically it is best to fly.

I did this journey 20 years ago - Paris to Prague on an overnight train. It took nearly 20 hours. Would never do it again, especially in these times of low cost airlines. There is no glamour in it and no cost savings that would justify such a painful trip. FLY, FLY, FLY.

Would it be cheaper to to buy tickets , online before even leaving for Europe?
