Prices explained

At Loco2 we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Loco2 searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

More advice about how to find the cheapest tickets can be found in our infographic.

  1. It is an easy journey by train from Berlin to Prague – two European capitals which are as different as chalk and cheese. Comfortable EuroCity trains link the two cities seven times each day, taking under five hours for the journey. The trains that serve this route are operated by either the Czech or Hungarian Railways. Bookings open three months prior to travel.

    The journey from Berlin to Prague splits neatly into two sections with Dresden the midway point. The run from Berlin to Dresden is through largely forested country which has its own pacific beauty. At Dresden the route joins the Elbe Valley which is then followed upstream across the German-Czech border to Prague. This second stretch of the journey is superb, particularly the first hour south from Dresden. Sit on the left-hand side of the train for the best views.

    Berlin to Prague

    EuroCity trains leave from the lower level of Berlin Hauptbahnhof every two hours for the journey to Prague. These trains also stop at Südkreuz station in Berlin before heading south out of the city. On reaching Prague, the train serves two stations. The first stop is at Holesovice in the northern suburbs of the city. We recommend staying on to Praha hlavní nádrazí, which is much more convenient for the city centre.

    Most trains on the Berlin to Prague route make four or five stops on the journey between the two capitals. Dresden is the only large city through which you will pass on this route.
