Does anyone know the length of time to go by train from Munich to Prague and Prague to Budapest by Train? I want to see if that is feasible. Also from Budapest back to Munich? I will need a lot of help in planning this trip and will need to post again
train from munich to prague is about 7 hrs. bus is cheaper, about the same amount of time.
Munich-Prague 5 to 6 hours, Prague to Budapest 7 to 8.5, Budapest to Munich 7h20m for direct train. You can find all that and much more on Deutsche Bahn website. To get there easily look up on the screen while on this website, click on Favorite Links, then Best Transportation Websites and then Deutsche Bahn.
The fastest route, 5.5 hrs between Munich and Prague is a train to Nurnberg and the bus to Prague. It is a single ticket from Bahn. You can do a train but it is about an hour longer.
The fastest route using the bus from Nurnberg is actually even faster than 5 hours (just by 2 minutes).
wish i had the info on the 5 hr ride - took the bus from prague to munich last year. now i know better!
Virginia, If you want to do Budapest-Munich (night), it's also a direct train but takes 2 hrs longer than doing it by day, which ca., 7.5 hrs. direct. That's a real improvement between Munich and Budapest, without the need to transfer and the duration of the ride.
A few years ago I did the Prague to Munich segment. (Budapest was a different trip) However that trip I made a few very logical stops in between. The relevant part of my trip was from Prague to Vienna, to Saltzburg to Munich. Prague to Vienna is like 3 hours, to Salzburg was about a 1.5 hours and to Munich another 1.5 hours or so. If you can get a direct train without switching in Vienna it should only be like 4-5 hours. Munich to Budapest is probably somewhere is 6 hour... For travel times I recommend looking at this web site. http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en?newrequest=yes&protocol=http:& (It is a German train site) and it is very accurate as far as travel times. Hope this helps! Elliot
