Buses from Prague to Nuremberg

Tyn Church in Prague

Buses from Prague to Nuremberg are a great way to travel to Germany. There are no direct trains from Prague to Nuremberg, so the best way to get from the capital of the Czech Republic to the beautiful city in Bavaria is to take a bus.

Services on this route are operated by Deutsche Bahn and Student Agency. The former operates coaches during the day, and the latter runs buses between the two cities at night.

Deutsche Bahn’s daytime buses depart every two hours from Prague’s Hlavni Nadrazi train station. They arrive at the Nuremberg Hauptbahnhof, or main train station. Both are centrally located and connected to all forms of public transportation.

The journey time on these buses is 3 hours and 40 minutes, making the trip relatively quick and convenient. That said, if you have a connection to make in Germany, leave yourself some extra time in case there is traffic en route.

Tickets cost from 19 euros one-way for singles if you purchase them online ahead of time.

Student Agency’s overnight buses from Prague to Nuremberg depart from the Florenc bus station and arrive at the main bus station in Nuremberg. The journey time is 4 hours and 5 minutes. Tickets cost from 27 euros one-way for singles if you buy them online in advance.
