Christmas Trip from Munich to Nuremburg to Prague to Vienna and back to Munich

Is it best to purchase a rail pass if I want to travel from Munich to Nuremburg to Prague to Vienna and back to Munich? Each day I will be traveling to the next place. And with the rail pass I will still need to make reservations, is that correct? Will one euro rail pass cover this entire trip?

    Hi Kandi,

    For the requested itinerary, the most economical option would just be to purchase regular point-to-point tickets, as opposed to any rail pass.

    You would purchase tickets by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage (www.raileurope.com) and entering a route.

    From Munich to Nuremberg, there are direct trains. These trains are high-speed 'InterCity Express' (ICE) trains.

    To travel from Nuremberg to Prague, you would actually be taking a bus. We are able to sell tickets for this bus service, and the ride only takes about 3.5 hours. The bus from Nuremberg to Prague is an 'InterCity Bus'.

    From Prague to Vienna, you would take a direct train. The trains from Prague to Vienna are 'Railjet' trains.

    A connection from Vienna to Munich involves changing trains once in Salzburg en route. Trains from Vienna to Salzburg are 'Railjet' trains. Trains from Salzburg to Munich are 'Railjet' or 'EuroCity' trains.

    With the exception of trains from Prague to Vienna, all of these segments can only be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure. Generally, the trains from Prague to Vienna can only be booked within 60 days of an intended date of departure. Since your intended travel isn't until December, you would just have to use earlier dates, within the next 60 or 90 days, to get an idea of the ticket costs and view schedules in the meantime.
