Trains in Europe are a convenient way to travel between cities, with a number of companies offering both domestic and international train routes. Trains from Prague to Berlin run three times a day, including weekends. The journey to the German capital takes just under five hours and can be done without any changes. The first train from Prague to Berlin leaves just before 12.30 p.m. and the last at about 4.30 p.m. The service is part of Deutsche Bahn's high-speed EuroCity network.
Travelers can choose to take trains from Prague to Berlin from either Praha Hlavni Nadr or Praha Holsovice stations. All trains to Berlin stop at both stations. Both stations are easily accessible from the city center using Prague's efficient public transport which consists of both trams and the metro system. Taxis are also available.
Trains from Prague arrive at Berlin's newly refurbished Hauptbahnhof station, which is in the heart of the German capital. Onward transport is available using the U-Bahn, S-Bahn, trams, buses or taxis.
Berlin is a fascinating, sprawling city with a wealth of history to fascinate the traveler. Five museums on Museumsinsel (Museum Island) focus their attention on archaeology and 19th-century art and, as a whole, have been listed by UNESCO. The Museum of Contemporary Art, in a former railway station, houses art made since the 1960s, while the Checkpoint Charlie Museum marks the most notorious crossing point between the former East and West Berlin and is a reminder of the divisions of the Cold War. The city's Jewish Museum has a distinctive, angular design by the star architect Daniel Liebeskind and a visit is an unforgettable experience. Berlin has a vibrant nightlife and to cater for those who indulge in it, the city's U-Bahn system operates all night on Fridays and Saturdays.
