travel to Krakow from Berlin or Prague

We are traveling to Berlin , Prague,Krakow & Budapest in April end. for 12 days.

Present Plan is to land at Berlin, then to Prague , Prague to Krakow , then to Budapest.

We have option to travel to Krakow from Berlin or Prague . Berlin to Krakow looks difficult. From Prague overnight train. Your advice pl.

We are keen to visit near by place of natural beauty instead one more historic city. What are good natural places of tourists near Krakow? or it will be better near Budapest ? by say few hours of train?

We had been to Vienna , Sazberg, Innsbruck in earlier trip last year so want to visit some new places.

this is all difficult so I don't think it matters in which order you do it.....also since you will spend so much time en route,this is too many cities for 12 days.....I might drop Budapest for another time but add Wroclaw to break up the long distance between cities.....its also an excellent city too

There is also an overnight train option from Berlin to Krakow, traveling via Szczecin.

During the day there is a direct DB Bahn (German Rail) bus service.

It probably makes more sense to plan your travel to travel from Berlin to Prague and then from Prague to Krakow. Leo Express has a good and inexpensive train+bus connection (on a single ticket) between Prague and Krakow. Bookable directly on their website. Schedules and ticket booking on https://www.le.cz/. By end April they might also operate a direct Prague to Krakow train.

PS. If you decide to travel between Berlin and Krakow via Szczecin, you can book the Szczecin-Krakow (overnight) leg of your trip directly on the Polish railways website https://www.intercity.pl/en/.

Do not waste your time for train. Take ryanair flight SXF-KRK with tickets as cheap as €13 one way. Flight takes 1h15min.

Hello Jozin, We are going ahead with plan to travel from Berlin to Prague and then from Prague to Krakow , as advised by you.

I checked on Czeck train site. Overnite train emia /403 2 , Euronight 22:19 (10:19 PM)Praha hl.n. &

06:10 (06:10 AM) Krakow Glowny.

Do we have to take paper ticket? their site says so.

Electronic tkt is not allowed on night train?

Leo Express takes little too long 14 hrs and a break with a change at Kosice . I checked on their website. on 21st April no direct Prague to Krakow train.

So can you provide an update on how your trip was? We are thinking about a similar route, maybe dropping Berlin but definitely want to visit Prague, Krakow and Budapest.

Thanks!
