Home :: Night train from Budapest to Prague
  • Date / time: 2019-05-04 13:47:45Name: Taesu

    I would like to book a night train from Budapest to Prague on July 23 night so that we can get to Prague early in the morning of July 24. I heard that it normally takes 8 hours. However, the schedule I found through your website tells us that it departs from Budapest on 19:30 and arrives at Prague on 08:00 (+1). I further drill down the schedules and it turns out that the train arrives Breclav at 23:00 and stays there until 5:00 (+1). Then, the question is: (a) Do I need to wait somewhere else at Breclay? Or do I sleep at the same train overnight? Or do I need to transfer another train and then sleep in the train overnight?

    It doesn't say anything about whether we need to transfer or not, and how we sleep in the train during 23:00 ~ 5:00 (+1).

    If we sleep in the train, does it mean that the train suspends its operation at Breclay until 5:00 (+1) (i.e., no overnight movement) and we just sleep inside the train (i.e., no transfer during the stay of the train at Breclay)?

    It would be appreciated if you help me to understand how the overnight train from Budapest to Prague?

    Thank you for your help in advance, and I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks!!

      Hello. You can book tickets for this overnight train up to 90 days in advance directly on this site. The train goes directly to Prague, there is no change, so you will stay on board all night and can sleep all night. There will be no control interrupting you during the night if you pass all tickets to a conductor, he/she will handle customs on your behalf.
