Regional bus service from Kassel

Does anyone know if there is regional bus service connecting Kassel and Dresden , Germany ? I hope to get to Prague by bus eventually. Dresden to Prague by bus has been easily found. The Dresden -Kassel information has been unobtainable for me through internet search from N.America.

If you want to go on one ride you have to take the train, maybe possible if you hop from town to town but that would be very time consuming.

There is not really a long distance bus network in Germany, like Greyhound in the US, there was a law against it to protect the Bahn (train) inside Germany, not to long ago, I think beginning of this year, there was a court ruling allowing long distance busses in Germany, but the network is not in place all over so far, as long as you cross a border you can go by bus, see Dresden-Prague, or Frankfurt-Poland and so on, all I could find was train connections also.

When will you do this trip? First check if you cannot get cheap discounted specials from Kassel to Prague.

DB timetable

http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en

Start: KASSEL

Destination: PRAGUE

.

There are no buses from Kassel to Dresden. If you want it slow and cheap you can use regional trains.

Start: KASSEL

Destination: Dresden Hbf

and select as means of transport "only local transport".
