    I am trying to arrange transport from Nuremberg port where cruise disembarks to Hilton Prague. I understand I must take a bus from Nuremburg to Prague but am having trouble understanding Bahn website.

    Any assistance would be helpful.

    The man in Seat 61 may be able to help. I have no experience in dealing with this person but he seems helpful and I believe has either posted here or on FT and seemed like a nice guy.

    BTW I did a quick look at bahn.de (in english of course) and put in a random date and found a bus leaving Nuremberg Hbf at 7:15 am going to Prague hl.n. with no stops. It appears its a 3.5 hour ride. I believe you do need an account with them to view prices, which I do, but i can't recall my password and it's locked now for 30 minutes. :eek::D

    Is there only one location in Nuremberg and one location in Prague? I think that was what was confusing me. They had several names which I was not sure they were all the same.

    The fare for that bus is either 19 EUR -- discount internet purchase, or 52 EUR -- regular price at the station.
    Arrives at the Central Bus terminal (Autobusova St, Prague)

    bahn.de can display multiple locations for a city, and that means if you don't pick the main station, it will show connecting buses or trains.

    Nope, don't need an account to view prices.

    Odd. I wasn't getting prices when I did my check but I am not saying I navigate that site the best.
