Prague to Berlin Train Tickets

Prague to Berlin Train Tickets

You can depend on Czech Railways (CD) to get you from Prague to Berlin by train in classic European comfort. Their modern EuroCity (EC) high-speed trains can make the journey between the two capital cities in just 4 hours and 30 minutes, non-stop.

Prague is a favorite stop among history buffs. Steeped in medieval tradition and architecture, the city offers such “must-see” attractions as the Charles Bridge and Wenceslas Square. Within Berlin’s colorful German culture lies a tapestry of iconic moments captured in time, never to be forgotten, such as Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenburg Gate and the Berlin Wall remains.

Choose from one of 6 daily departure times, then climb aboard a stylish, air-cooled EuroCity coach. First and Second Class seating is available, along with a level of quality onboard services and amenities.

Purchase your “Paper Ticket and Reservation” here and your seat reservation is included. Because this type of ticket requires shipping, it will be delivered to your home address shortly after your order has been processed. Simply present the physical ticket at the station and you’ll be set to travel from Prague to Berlin by train.
