Hamburg to Prague in Dec 2009

by leosham

Hi all,

http://www.bahn.de/international/view/en/index.shtml

will give you train times, details and fares in English. Search for 'Praha' (German for Prague).

Several trains per day, journey takes 6-8+ hours depending on train, fares from around 101 euro one-way. Times and fares for December may not be available, bt won't change much (if at all).

You can also go by long-distance bus:

http://www.touring.de/index.php?id=2&L=1 for times and fares (search for 'Tschechien'). Journey takes about 12 hours.

The Student Agency (not just for students)also run buses from Hamburg>Prague:

which will probably be the cheapest option.

Dear leics,

Many thx for your prompt reply. The train seems fine to me. May i know is it hard to book ticket during X'Mas time? Do i need to book now or April? Btw, the Bahn web shows the item "Saving Fares", other than standard fare. Whats about? Many thanks!!

Best,
Leo

You certainly don't need to book now! :-)

Bahn.de does offer some good fares if they are booked online in advance, so it will be worth looking at the site in, say, October.

If you are travelling very near to Christmas then it would be a good idea to get your ticket in advance (because so many people go home etc over Christmas). But if you have problems buying it online then just get it fromthe station whilst you are in Hamburg. Ticket machines usually have English options, and ticket office staff speak at least adequate English.

Re: Hamburg to Prague in Dec 2009

by leics

I think the 'savings fares' you refer to are the 'advance' fares shown online.

If you look at fares for, say, late April you will probably see the cheaper fares indicated.

Many thanks for your information, i will buy the ticket in advance!! Thx again!!

Hy,
if you back to Hamburg, Click4sky sells round trip to 98€ in december.
Leics, your first mistake!!! Praha is in czech, in german is Prag.
Ciao, Marco

Praha and Prag are equally acceptable in German.

http://dict.tu-chemnitz.de/dings.cgi?lang=en&service=deen&opterrors=0&optpro=0&query=prague&iservice=&comment=

Of course I make mistakes (thogh that wasn't one). I am a human being! :-)

Until recently, searching for 'prague' on bahn.de would automatically bring up 'praha'.

> Praha and Prag are equally acceptable in German.

No, in German it's Prag, not Praha. Praha might appear on documents and the like because it's the original name, but even then it's almost always accompanied by „Prag“. And you won't find any native German speaker who'll use the word Praha.

Re: Hamburg to Prague in Dec 2009

But it works on Bahn.de, and that's what matters here....especially for non-native speakers of German. :-)

Travel Tips for Hamburg

Hummel, Hummel

by Leipzig

In the early 18th century lived a soldier in Hamburg who was very popular by the kids due to his interesting stories about the world. Everytime they saw him they called "Hummel, Hummel" in order to hear an interesting story. When the soldier died an embittered man named Johann Wilhelm Bentz (1787 -1854) moved into the soldier's flat. As the kids also greeted him with "Hummel, Hummel" he answered "Mors, Mors" which means something like "kiss my ass". However, it has become a popular greeting in Hamburg.

Tired of the city?

by chris.hh

You do not need to leave the city if you are tired of the built environment. Why not have a break in the Stadtpark? It is pretty a large green area where people meet when sun is shining for some sports or just hanging around. Sometimes it also seems to be an open air disco... A big plus for this location: it is allowed to have BBQs here - so as soon as sun comes out in spring you'll find "Hamburgers" barbecueing...
There are also many paths for a walk and you definately can find quiet places and enjoy cake and coffee in little cafes or have a beer in beergardens. Also have a look at the planetarium. They are supposed to have a great show but it is recommended to make ticket reservations. For more info: www.planetarium-hamburg.de.
If you really need to cool down there is also an open air bath - however it's a natural lake - not everybody enjoys water plants grabbing the feet... Those who prefer to enjoy the sunset might do that in the beergarden next to the "pool".
There is also a nice open air stage (Freilichtbühne Stadtpark). In summer there are many concerts of German artists as well as internationally known ones. It's also nice to sit down next to the place and enjoy music if you do not want to pay for a ticket - it also is a cool atmosphere...

Disco Pub

by Leipzig about Thomas Read

This disco at the Reeperbahn has two dance floors. On the upper you have a long bar and music of the 80s is played (at least when I was here). On the groundfloor a live band playes on a stage in front of a dance floor. There is also a bar and you also can sit outside and watch the people dancing.

Wonderful

by Maidstoneman about Cox

Large restaurant with very stylish staff 5 minutes from Railway Station. It`s all very good - especially the piglet.
Wines are a bit on the pricey side but the food is exceptional and value for money.

Licking the spoon

by christine.j

Hamburg's city hall is a very impressive building with many statues and ornaments, emphazising the importance and rich history of this city.

But what I liked best of the city hall was the sculpture of a boy?/man?, licking a spoon. He looks like he's not noticing anything which goes on around him, all that matters is the good dough he's tasting.

The sculpture is on the wall in the inner yard, where you can also see
the Cholera fountain. This fountain was to tell the citizens how important clean water was and still is.
