Krakow to Munich

by janiebird

I need to eventually get from Krakow back to Munich. I will arrive on a train from Prague. Should I return to Prague and go south or is there a better way to go back on the train. I would rather not retrace the same route. Flying would be great, but cannot find any flights from Krakow to Munich or anywhere close by. I will be in Krakow the first week of September.

Thank you so much for your help.

will give you train times for the vast majority of European trains.

You can do it, but it's a very long journey (19+ hours), with several changes.

It would be better to break it with an overnight stay somewhere, I think. Build it into your holiday plans, as it were.

Maybe Vienna (8 hours+ then 4+ hours from Vienna to Munich)?

Or even Budapest (can be done in just over 9 hours with the right train, then another 8+ Budapest to Munich).

www.polrail.com is the Polish railway website but their timetable link doesn't work in its English version, so I can't find fares for you (bahn.de only give fare for Germany).

Lufthansa fly Krakow >Frankfurt (not cheap): you could then get the train to Munich from Frankfurt (just over 3 hours). Or Easyjet to Dortmund (evening flight), then train for 6+ hours.

So it's a matter of balancing the time you are prepared to spend travelling against the cost of airfare/trainfare/hotel.

The by far easiest, fastest and cheapest way to go is to buy a Praha-Krakow-Praha-Plzen round-trip ticket in Czech Republic and order the Bayern-Böhmen Ticket on-line from Germany (they send it to you for free). You will indeed return back to Praha than. The "real" ticket part will cost about 55 Euro, the single "Bayern-Böhmen Ticket" is 22 Euro extra for singles, but if there are at least two of you, the price is 32 Euro up to 5 people on the same ticket. That would be ca. 80 Euro for the entire Praha-Krakow-Munich adventure.

All you need is to change the train once (in Praha) going to Munich.

Every other option will be more, keep in mind, the Praha-Krakow is 29 Euro alone (you can squeeze it in ca. 22 Euro if you are tricky, but not less!) and the cheapest way to get to Munich from any Bavarian border will be at least 19 Euro.

Travel Tips for Krakow

With many of Krakow's streets a vast and lovely living museum, the Stare Miasto (Old Town) is a historical Gold Mine. Its ancient cathedrals, houses and palaces can overwhelm visitors with only a few days to see the sights.

Another fine example of the beautiful tapestry adorning the wall of Wawel Castle.

In the first days of the Second World War these tapestries were evacuated to Romania and next through France and England to Canada.
They came back to Wawel in 1961, to be hung in the royal chambers again.

by matthew24

Patience and knowledge of Polish numbers are essential for bartering in and around the square. Many artisans expect foreigners to be unfamiliar with Polish and quick to make a purchase. Know your numbers, look around at other prices for the same type of work, don't be afraid to walk away and come back, and realize that many posted prices are inflated by 40-50% above the artisan's bottom dollar.

I highly recommend touring as many cafes as possible while in Krakow. Surely, you won't get a chance to get a drink or grab something to eat in each one of them but touring different food/drink venue is a great tourist treat. Krakow and Poland in general have a wonderful theatrical tradition. Many Krakow stage design or interior design students decide to use cafes, restaurants, clubs etc. as their diploma projects. The results are spectacular. The interiors of these venues are breath-taking. They are true examples of creativity and style.

Birkenau

by leffe3

Although labelled as Auschwitz-Birkenau, the camp at Birkenau is a couple of miles from the 'better known' Auschwitz. This site perhaps more than any other in Europe highlights the sheer scale and horror of 'the final solution' genocide of jews and incarceration and murder of other political prisoners. Some 1.5 - 2 million people were murdered here. Like so many of these camps, in spite of the size and open spaces, the silence is absolute, not even bird song.
Birkenau has been left moreorless to speak for itself (unlike Auschwitz, where many of the barracks have been converted into memorials and museums). A vast open plain, the foundations of most of the huts where the prisoners were kept still in situ. Watch-towers, fences and foundation stones of some of the 300 structures still survive, as do some 60 wood and brick buildings. To wander through the connecting pathways, seeing inside some of the barrack rooms where prisoners were kept, to see the remains of the gas chambers and, perhaps even more poignantly, stumble over the rail tracks where so many ended their final journey, is almost emotionally crippling.
