Bus or Train from Prague to Vienna

by autumn918

Hi all,

is there any bus or train that goes from Prague to Vienna?

How much is it and how long would it take?

Thanks.

Yes, there's definitely a train service which I have ridden myself. It takes about 4 hours and 2 years ago it cost 42 euros. See my tip on this below.

I'll leave it to others to reply about the bus option.

I took a coach across which wasn't bad at all, it stopped off for a loo and snack break in the middle and didn't stop anywhere else. It takes about 5 hours.
I did a quick search and tickets in January are from €16 one way.

There are buses and trains. All have travel time around 4.5 hours.

You can buy train ticket on the spot before leaving which is more flexible but more expensive. It is also possible to buy cheaper on-line ticket but it is fixed with regard to date/departure time - price 19 EUR:

There are 2 main companies providing bus service. It is recommended to book on-line, these might be sold out on some dates:

--Direct service:
https://www.elines.cz/en/ (around 22 EUR, discounts possible for early bookers)

--With bus change in Brno (around 15 min stop-over):

I took the train from Prague to Vienna last May and it was about four hours with no stops. Don't recall the price but the 40E quoted earlier sounds about right.

Definitely a train from Prague to Vienna. More comfortable,
more civilised and more eco-friendly than flying. Did it last July.

LOL - because it's totally wrong about prices as being seen from Central Europe. Regarding pricing - Seat61 is mostly from British perspective for residents of U.K.

At the moment you buy the tickets somewhere else, the situation is completely different.

In any case, there are several ways to buy a train ticket between Prague and Vienna.

#1: Buy Prague-Bratislava (ca. 24 Euro) and take a short ride by bus from Bratislava to Vienna.
#2: Buy Prague-Breclav domestic Czech ticket at domestic counter and a Breclav-Vienna ticket at international counter.
#3: Buy a Prague-Vienna special offer on-line from www.cd.cz

Which is better, hard to tell. Also much depends on the number of people traveling together. For instance a family would want to utilize the "Einfach Raus" offer of Austrian Railways, but for a single person it's not the best, unless (s)he wants to travel that day a lot all over Austria.

Travel Tips for Prague

WiFi

by r13

Hi,

There are free WiFi spots, I wouldn't call "a lot", but there is no problem to connect.

Some places offer WiFi to customers providing a access code (like "Pizza Colloseum" on Mustek), others just have unlocked access.

Some places near Mustek:

"Coffe and Cigars" on Vodickova street 39 - http://www.coffeeandcigars.cz/

"Cafe Cafe" - Rytirska 10 - also free PC for customers is available.

In the shopping centers often there is at least one restaurant/cafe with free WiFi. For example "La Tavola" in "Novy Smichov" (Metro Andel), or some restaurants on top floor in "Palladium" (nearby Municipal house).

Tourist Information

by ZiOOlek

There is a tourist information centre at the main market square near the famous clock - Orloj. It is open all week long and you may gain some information there, as well as take a free map of the centre, buy postcards and even use toilet.;)

Its All About the Green Stuff...

by Sagespot

When you go to the Czech Republic give absinthe a shot. Its a green spirit with a very high alcohol content. Although illegal in many countries, its a legal drink in the Czech Republic.

The deadliest locally produced brand is Hills Liquere absinthe from Jindrichuv Hradec - although thats the brand I had and it tasted like little more than horrific mouthwash.

In case you're worried the amount of wormwood in absinthe is negligble so you won't go crazy. *grin*

Packing List

by eleanorbueza

If you are going to be there in the high summer, casual and light clothing should be fine (up to 27 degrees celcius is what you are looking at); on the other hand, if you will be there in the dead of winter, bring your winter gear = toque, mittens, scarf, etc. You will need them!

Views of Prague

by Emmjai

Not very far of the beaten path, but perhaps only on the itineray of people staying in the city for a few days.

The top of this hill has very barron, apparently it was the site of a statue of Stalin, which was felled when Prague joined the west again.

It is a great spot from which to view the town
