I did the train trip from Regensburg Germany via Furth to Domalice MESTO . Note Mesto is the nearest to the town centre not Domalice. Mesto is a tiny station about 450 metres from town. I travelled at about 09-30 with a change at Schwandorf and Furth. From Furth to Domalice Mesto the train is a Czech one carriage train. Also from Regensburg a direct train leaves at 10-31. Bahn.de gives train times. I used a Bavarian /Bohmen ticket at 25 euro , this can be used on rail lines either side of the border. If you are returning to Furth Germany from Mesto station, you may have to travel the 3 minute by train to Domalice main station to catch the train there. At Mesto station the yellow timetable is in the window. Study carefully as it shows times at start station and end stations that stop at Mesto.

Domažlice is easily reached by train from Prague via Plzen. And domestic Czech train tickets are really cheap.
From the neighbouring Bavaria some interesting tickets are available. The best is - in particular on weekends - the Bayern-Ticket. This is a one-day pass valid on all regional trains and buses in Bavaria plus all Bavarian Integrated Traffic systems in and around the bigger cities (bus, tram, Underground etc.) valid from 09:00 in the morning until 03:00 the next day, on Saturdays, Sundays and official Bavarian holidays the whole day (from 00:00 until 03:00 the next day). The price is for one person 19 EUR and for groups of up to 5 persons travelling together only 27 EUR. And if you add only 3 EUR to the ticket price you can buy a "Bayern-Boehmen-Ticket" which entitles to all what is covered by the Bayern-Ticket plus the same opportunities (trains of the categories R, Sp and Os) on the Czech railway system in a large area stretching all along the Czech border from Ceske Budejovice in the South until the point where Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic meet in the North which means that you may reach with this ticket for example Liberec from Lindau or Ceske Budejovice from Wuerzburg. Look at the map what that means! You are of course restricted to regional trains up to the category Regional Express but if you make your research on the web before the start you may even find surprisingly fast connections. The computer is looking automatically for the fastest connections but this info ends all at the Czech border, about 20 minutes train ride from Domažlice.
But there is an interesting additional fact: There is not only the DB (Deutsche Bahn - German Railways) operating on the German rails but also a number of other private carriers, the biggest group of them being the "Laenderbahn" which has under its roof in our area the Vogtlandbahn and the Oberpfalzbahn. You can use with your Bayern-Ticket all their trains because they are all considered being Regional trains. But there is a "Star" among them, it is the "alex"-train which has all features of a long-distance fast train. Several times per day the "alex" runs through our area connecting Prague with Muenchen and Nuernberg respectively, passing the Czech border between Domažlice and Furth im Wald. This means that you can enjoy a really fast train with the Bayern-ticket in our case.

Whether you fly into Prague or Munich, car rentals are easy (no problem driving a rental from one country to another, but you must notify the rental agency that you are doing so). Driving in the Czech Republic is not a problem (except that Prague offers some driving challenges). And, of course, the autobahns in Germany are a dream. Local and back roads in both countries have little traffic and are easy to drive. Domazlice is about a half day's drive (depending on how many stops you want to make along the way) from both cities.

There is a rail connection to Domazlice from both Prague and Munich. There are multiple rail options from Prague, but the fast trains take about 2.5 hours and can cost as little as $30 U.S. one way. Train connections can also be made from Munich to Domazlice but may require changing trains a number of times.
