Due to the Covid-19, Emerald River Cruises has cancelled our May 28th cruise and we were able to re-book on a Sept. 6th cruise. The May cruise included 3 days in Prague at the end of our trip with transfers from Nuremberg to hotel in Prague and airport included. The Sept. 6th cruise does NOT include Prague and so we also lose our transfer from Nuremberg to Prague. Can someone suggest the most economical and stress reduced method of transport from the river cruise dock to Prague? Thank you.
Several bus companies, including DB's IC Bus. 3 1/2 hours.
Another bus option from Flixbus. I've set the currency to Euros, which will be slightly cheaper than USD. Prices increase as tickets sell and seat inventory decreases. For a lovely countryside view, I highly recommend paying the small premium for the front row "panorama view" seats.
I took cheap and convenient DB IC bus Nurnberg-Prague over 20 times (I lived in Prague). https://www.bahn.com/en/view/offers/bus/index.shtml. Please note the luggage restriction (in point 3.3) -- https://www.bahn.com/en/view/mdb/bahnintern/international/redaktion_bahn.com/pdf-datein/pdf_2019/mdb_300661_faq-ic_bus_en_071119.pdf. I'd recommend seats on the upper level. If you have big luggage, Flixbus can better accommodate.
not the most economical way but certainly the most stress free. maybe you could try and contact another couple doing the same thing and it will halve the cost.
Thank you for all of your suggestions. Most helpful.
