    Teplice has a sufficient local transportation system - buses. Most buses are trolley buses, getting the electric power from an overhead system. When I saw this it reminded me of such buses running many years ago in Germany too.

    The buses look a bit old and are not very clean, but they have a very modern ticket system. You can either buy individual tickets from the bus driver or get a keycard in advance with a certain number of tickets or even a day ticket etc. In the latter case the keycard is read by a non-touch system at the entrance at the bus - very simple and you don't need cash. The fares are dirty cheap, though.

    Buses are running frequently, but not always in time. I found out later that Teplice is very walkable, you don't really need buses.

    I took the bus, not the railway, but I inquired about this transportation mode as well, of course. I found, however, that it is not as convenient/fast as the bus, travelling from Dresden.

    Teplice is connected by trains with Usti nad Labem, which is a stop on the international route (Berlin-) Dresden - Prague. The trains run frequently and are an option for those coming from Berlin or Prague.

    The railway station Teplice was undergoing restoration when I was there. It still looked shabby from outside, but in the small main hall the works were almost finished - magnificent! (see the second photo)

    Bus Dresden - Teplice

    I went to Teplice by bus from Dresden, which is the most economical way. The bus starts right at the Central Railway station (Hauptbahnhof) and runs every 2 hours (e.g. 9.44 am, 11.44 am etc.). The route is south via Dippoldiswalde and Altenberg, crossing the border in Zinnwald/Cinovec. The buses are convenient and air-conditioned. The ride is 1:37 h one way and quite scenic. You arrive in Teplice at the main railway station.

    Fare is 8 Euro one way. You can pay in CzK as well.
