Train to Vienna

by stamporama

Would like some info on how to get to Vienna from Prague by rail. Where and what time to ride, frequency, length of trip, cost, etc. Thanks!

Re: Train to Vienna

by Maryimelda

You can get a Super City train from Praha Holsevice at 8.23 and 10.23 every morning. There are no changes and the durationof the trip is 4 hrs 5 mins. It is a very comfortable train only the overhead baggage racks are not designed to carry any "fat" luggage. We were lucky to have spare seats in the carriage that we could use to put our luggage on. The train goes to Wien Westbahnof

Maryimelda, do you know the price of the tickets? aprox?

Thanks.

Re: Train to Vienna

by Maryimelda

I can't source the price from Prague to Vienna but the price from Vienna to Prague in 2nd class is approximately 33Euro. I would suspect that from Prague to Vienna, if not cheaper, would certainly be no more expensive. Just a guess however. GyuriFT would know for sure. With any luck he might be around on the forum and will tell you all you want to know.

Thanks, Kate. Does one have to get tickets/reservations days before the trip or is it OK to buy them right at the moment of your departure?

will give you train timetables for Europe in English (but only fares for journeys originating in Germany). There are plenty of trains daily, taking around 4 hours, but all require reservation. This simply means you have to reserve a seat beforehand, not just buy a ticket, and theoretically you can do this up to a few minutes before departure. However, it would be sensible to do so a day or so in advance and it's easy enough to pop into Holosevice station whilst you are in Prague.

The Czech railway site is

http://www.cd.cz/static/eng/

Its online reservation system does not seem to be working at the moment. Finding fares is difficult at the best of times: there are individual pricelist PDFs to open under the 'pricelist' tab, worked out by distance in km. At least they will give you a rough idea of cost in CZK (remember to add in reservation fee from the separate pricelist). It won't be desperately expensive: most European train fares are extremely resonable, especially in comparison with those in the UK!

Re: Train to Vienna

No need to book too far in advance. A day or two will be plenty. You would probably be fine just turning up and buying your ticket on the day you want to go, but for peace of mind, it's probably a good idea to go into the station the day before or if you are travelling to Prague by train, book your trip to Vienna when you arrive in Prague.

Re: Train to Vienna

by pida85

The only trains requiring seat reservation are SuperCity (dep.8.23, 10.23), all other EuroCity trains do not require it. Ticket price is 33,30 euro (excluding reservation).
You can make it cheaper, just search forums for tips, usually good choice is CD NET (one day train pass), SONE+(weekend pass), or group discount if there are at least 2 people. These discounted fares apply only for non-international travel, so you'll need to buy 2 tickets, one domestic + an international one.

Affordable Beer and Pubcrawl in Prague

by daveruzius

Sometimes it takes just a few hundred meters to find a great local place serving perfect beer but for normal prices.
Organise your own cheap pub crawl by avoiding the tourist traps and crazy beer prices by using the great interactive and unique beer price map of Prague on nelso.nl (available in more languages)

In a number of the places on the map you'll be able to find the true bohemian atmosphere, some live music and some great snacks to go with the beer !

Enjoy Prague like the locals do !

A Backpacker's Packing List

by tekiegirl

1 large rucksack, which is comfortable to carry, to pack everything in.
1 small rucksack, to use as a daysack, to carry on your front. Comfortable shoes - most streets are cobbled!
Warm and cold weather clothes - several thin layers are best due to the changable weather.
NOTE: don't wear heeled shoes around town unless you're just out for the evening!
NOTE: most hostels have washing facilites so you don't have to pack clother for every day of your trip. Any medication you use - also bring the packaging to show to a pharmacist if you need more.
Small versions of washkit items (toothpaste, shampoo, etc) to keep down weight & bulk.
Toilet paper - if your precious about what you wipe your bum with. Czech toilet paper is fine for most people. Boots (UK) do a small box which is much better than bringing a roll. You will definately want a camera. Make sure you keep it safe. Your best bet is to secure it to your belt & hang it round your neck or, even better, keep it in your daysack on your front.
Film seems easy to get hold of. If you have a digital camera extra storage cards are expensive so buy before you travel. If you're going to camp check with the campsite you are going to stay at as to whether you can rent items from them. This will keep weight & bulk down. Adapter: If necessary bring a travel plug adapter. It's the standard two-pin European plug here.
Guidebook: if you don't want to join the organised tours you will definately need a guide, otherwise you will miss out! Lonely Planet is currently the most up to date, but the information is still a couple of years old.
Phrasebook: Lonely Planet do a good Eastern Europe phrase book with loads of langauges in.
Ear plugs: If you are staying in a hostel be prepared to be kept awake if you don't have ear plugs.

Castle at Stoned Path Czesky Krumlov

by Meg_nanako

I truly prfer Czesky Krumlov than Prague itself. For one reason, it's less crowded and people are friendlier here. Moreover, you don't feel ripped off as no one is going to force you to pay for the bread they put on your table when you order a meal!
I highly recommend that one night stay in Czesky Krumlov, then you can take your time to have an evening stroll and a morning breakfast. It's so reflective.

Zamek Konopiste: Spring colours

by hundwalder

April and May are the best months to visit the Czech Republic and Zamek Konopiste. The chateau grounds provide refuge to many animals. It is difficult to explain why so few tourists visit Konopiste.

See my previous Konopiste tips on getting to this fascinating slice of Czechia, and for other details.
