prague to berlin by train - howto

Jump to last reply

i would like to combine our summer visit to prague with a few days in berlin.i will be flying open jaw.one detail which is worrying me is the train trip between prague and berlin.

i dont know much about the prague Main Station (hlavní nádraží).i am imagining that the train schedules will be in czech,trains possibly late, and that the ticket booth staff might not be too fluent in english.

besides england, i used the train once before in italy,to get from rome to naples.we didnt understand the schedule.the only reason we caught the train we intended was that it left 90min late.

can someone who has been there share their experience of finding/reading the schedule, getting the ticket,validating it and finding the platform?do you need to get tickets from a specific train company in the station?are the announcments in english? thanks.
