Berlin to Prague by train

Berlin and Prague are two must-see capitals in Europe, just four and a half hours away from each other by train. With so many scenic sites passing right by your window, the time will just fly by, plus, you can disembark knowing you picked the greener way to travel! Deutsche Bahn’s EC (Eurocity) trains will get you there in comfort, with plenty of room for both you and your bags, plus with stops in major cities being its only ports of call (and none of those long security and customs lines you can expect at an airport), it’s a fabulously efficient way to travel.

The perfect trip for lovers of beer, Berlin and Prague both have a solid claim to the ‘best beer in Europe’ crown, with Prague pipping Berlin at the post if you want to party on a budget. The city is a popular pre-wedding destination for just this reason, but don’t worry, there’s lots more to the city than staggering stag dos! Prague Castle is right out of a storybook, and the cobbled streets of the old town perfectly match the magical theme, although you’ll also find a buzzing hipster scene too, with bars and eateries offering tasty treats.
